Amazon Neptune is a fully managed graph database service. After launching an Amazon Neptune instance, you can connect to it using any client that supports Apache TinkerPop Websocket Server or the W3C’s SPARQL Protocol 1.1.

We have published AWS Reference Architectures for Using Graph Databases to help inform your choices about graph data models and query languages as well as providing reference deployment architectures. Below you will find the resources you need to get started with Amazon Neptune.

Customer case studies

“A graph database gives us more flexibility than the relational systems. We might need to do a lot of joins on our tables [in a relational model], and that would have caused high latency of a lot of our business logic. A graph database is optimized for our use case. Amazon Neptune solved what we were trying to solve.”

Mayank Gupta, Software Engineer - Audible for Business

metaphactory and Amazon Neptune enabled Siemens Energy to build a Turbine Knowledge Graph and visualize the connections between similar parts across the entire fleet of gas turbines. Amazon Neptune, a managed graph database service, fits perfectly into the cloud-first strategy driven by Siemens Energy IT, which focuses on reliability, scalability, reduction of maintenance and integration with their existing platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

"We chose Neptune because it is a powerful graph database that is secure, performant, and analytics-friendly. In our [contact tracing] model, each user node is connected to a device node. When a device checks in to a location, an edge forms between that device and a scannable (a QR code), which is associated with a particular site (a physical store) and linked organization (a corporate entity). Neptune allows us to store these rich relationships between users, check-ins, and locations to derive insight about the spread of the virus."

Aron Szanto, Co-Founder - Zerobase
