How Graph databases grow to operate at web-scale


(Saifrahmans) #1

The main issue that i am trying to understand that is how a connected graph can be partitioned and sharded to scale horizontally. I have been looking at facebooks TAO db architecture. https://medium.com/coinmonks/tao-facebooks-distributed-database-for-social-graph-c2b45f5346ea .,https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/atc13/atc13-bronson.pdf . It has master-slave rdbms backed data storage with layers of in-memory caches.
