An empirical comparison of graph databases

In recent years, more and more companies provide services that can not be anymore achieved efficiently using relational databases. As such, these companies are forced to use alternative database models such as XML databases, object-oriented databases, document-oriented databases and, more recently graph databases. Graph databases only exist for a few years. Although there have been some comparison attempts, they are mostly focused on certain aspects only.
In this paper, we present a distributed graph database comparison framework and the results we obtained by comparing four important players in the graph databases market: Neo4j, OrientDB, Titan and DEX.
