Amazon Neptune serverless allows you to run and instantly scale graph workloads, without the need to manage and optimize database capacity. With Neptune serverless, you can create a graph database for your workload using the three most popular graph query languages: Apache TinkerPop Gremlin, openCypher, and SPARQL. Neptune serverless automatically determines and provisions the compute and memory resources to run the graph database, and scales capacity up and down based on the workload’s changing requirements to maintain consistent performance. For example, Neptune serverless automatically provisions and adjusts resources required to run a fraud graph as the query volumes being processed vary in response to changes in user activity. With Neptune serverless, you only pay for the resources you use, making it cost effective to run even the most demanding and unpredictable applications. You can start with Neptune serverless without any upfront investment.

You can create a serverless Amazon Neptune graph within minutes through the AWS Management Console, the Command Line Interface (CLI), or APIs, specifying the minimum and maximum capacity limit to manage costs. You only pay for the capacity consumed and don't have to manually adjust capacity. With Neptune serverless, you can use Neptune’s support for high availability and multi-layered, enterprise security features—such as data encryption at-rest and in-transit, network isolation using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), and authorization using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)—making Neptune serverless HIPAA eligible and compliant with multiple regulatory mandates such as FedRAMP, PCI-DSS, and SOC.


Scale instantly

Neptune serverless scales database capacity up and down in fine-grained increments as your workloads increase or decrease in demand. You can start with a small graph and scale your database instantly as your graph and workload grows.

Save up to 90% on database costs

Neptune Serverless provides up to 90% cost savings compared to provisioning for peak capacity. With Neptune Serverless, you only pay for the database capacity you consume, making it cost effective for unpredictable workloads with long off-peak times and sudden bursts of activity.

Optimize performance for demanding workloads

Reduce the complexity and guesswork of configuring database capacity for variable workloads. Neptune Serverless will scale with your workloads to deliver consistent performance without the need to manually manage database capacity.

Developer choice

Create a serverless graph database for your applications with support for the three most popular graph query languages: Apache TinkerPop Gremlin, openCypher, and SPARQL.
