    About this Repo

    Please note that this repo is only for Nebula Graph v1.*.*.

    From v2.*.*, which was already GA in 2021 April, Nebula Graph's core codebases are nebula-graph, nebula-common and nebula-storage, it's recommended to start from the repo: nebula-graph.

    What is Nebula Graph

    Nebula Graph is an open-source graph database capable of hosting super large-scale graphs with billions of vertices (nodes) and trillions of edges, with milliseconds of latency. It delivers enterprise-grade high performance to simplify the most complex data sets imaginable into meaningful and useful information.

    Below is the architecture of Nebula Graph:


    Compared with other graph database solutions, Nebula Graph has the following advantages:

    • Symmetrically distributed
    • Storage and computing separation
    • Horizontal scalability
    • Strong data consistency by RAFT protocol
    • SQL-like query language
    • Role-based access control for higher level security
