Amazon Neptune is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region on engine versions and later. You can now create Neptune clusters using R5, R5d, and T3 instance types.

Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, and fully managed graph database as a service that makes it easy to build and run applications work with highly connected datasets. You can build applications using Apache TinkerPop Gremlin or openCypher (in lab mode) on the Property Graph model, or using the SPARQL query language on W3C Resource Description Framework (RDF). You can use the Neptune ML capability to easily make predictions on graphs, or build a full-text search index using an integration with Amazon OpenSearch to perform fast string searches on graph data. Neptune also offers enterprise features such as high availability, automated backups, and network isolation to help customers quickly deploy applications to production.

To get started, you can create a new Neptune cluster using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or a quickstart AWS CloudFormation template. For more information on pricing and region availability, refer to the Neptune pricing page and AWS Region Table
