Specific characteristics

Memgraph directly connects to your streaming infrastructure so you and your team don’t spend countless hours building and maintaining complex data pipelines.

  • Securely ingest data from sources like Kafka, and Amazon S3

  • Get started in minutes using built-in data connectors or our API.

  • Keep your data in sync with your source with continuous data ingestions.

Memgraph uses the property graph data model, which stores data in terms of objects, their attributes, and the relationships that connect them. We believe that this is by far the most natural and effective way to model many real-world problems.

  • Intuitively map complex data problems without having to worry about JOIN operations or other complex constructs.

  • Easily maintain, change, and expand your data model without spending days rethinking it.

  • Enrich your data model by adding attributes and labels to your nodes and relationships, including timestamps, geospatial data types, and much more.

Memgraph provides a standard Cypher interface to query your data. Cypher is a widely-used and declarative query language that is easy to write, understand and optimize for performance. 

  • Write complex traversal queries in an easy and intuitive way without worrying about joins and recursions.

  • Leverage hundreds of existing graph algorithms directly from Cypher.

  • Easily extend Cypher with your own custom procedures using Python query modules.

Memgraph delivers predictable and stable sub-second or single-digit second performance on some of the most complex queries and algorithms while ensuring that your data and results are always correct.

  • Memgraph is engineered from the ground up in C/C++ and leverages an in-memory first architecture to ensure that you’re getting the best possible performance, consistently, and without surprises.

Competitive advantages
  • Business Source License ensures a future for the Memgraph community

  • MAGE algorithm library puts the power of advanced patterns in your hands with almost no code

  • Design and write your own compiled graph algorithms to operate on your data

  • Direct Kafka connection and deep integration means you'll finally be able to take advantage of your streaming data
