Now that graph databases are on the rise, I would like to request you add a graph database manager, such as Neo4J or OrientDB to you standard database offerings.


Thank you

Hello,


What uses would a graph database manager have for cPanel users? I don't quite understand it's usages at this time. Could you expand on what you'd like to see offered?

Hello,


Graph databases are a method of storing data using a technique similar to how our brains store data. There are individual pieces of data connected via relationships. While relational databases are good for information that is stored in table form, graph databases are much better at handling interconnections, especially non-hierarchical data. Because there are no tables, the databases are free form in nature.


Here's a link to a better definition than what I just gave (this is from Neo4j):

Companies like Google, Amazon, Cisco, Facebook, LinkedIn, eHarmony, eBay all implement graph databases.


Personally, I am working on a project where I'd like to develop a database with these types of relationships, but I am limited to what I can do with MySQL.


Thank you,


Paul
