Two weeks ago, we had the privilege of presenting a case study at Graph Day. We recounted a client study we did to see whether their database could be reorganized to offer improved query performance. We looked at graph databases (OrientDB, Titan, Neo4J) because they thought of their data as graph data, and relational (Postgresql) … Continue reading Graph Day 2016

We’re talking about database passwords, secret API keys, per-user encryption keys, and the like. For a long time, … Continue reading Managing Secrets in a Cloud World – Introduction
The nice thing about taking a step away from a software title for over a year is that you can see where the focus really has been in that time, see the forest through the trees if you will.
As part of the work we’re doing to refresh our graph database evaluation for a couple of clients (and our upcoming talk at Graph Day!) we took Titan 1.0 out for a spin last week.
