    As previously announced, Associativy now gets support for the Neo4j graph database! Neo4j is a real graph database, especially suited for applications like Associativy. If you're using Neo4j as the underlying storage for Associativy graphs, you can count on better performance and scalability if a graph is enormously huge.

    The new Associativy Neo4j driver at the current stage only has an implementation for IConnectionManager, but not yet for IPathFinder. This means that a graph can fully be … more

    Thanks to the excellent Neo4jClient library Associativy will soon support a real graph database, Neo4j! This will potentially mean the ability to have enormously big graphs and very complex, custom lookups. To make Associativy play along with Neo4j is a challenging task, but count on me! more

Associativy now actually stores the graph in an SQL table, however for quick traversal it also loads it into memory. This is fine, but most likely won't work consistently in a multi-node environment like a web farm and can lead to performance problems with very large graphs.
