It is an era of Big Data. There are over 300 DBMS’s registered in DB-engines.com, thus, there is intense competition. Bitnine observed that more and more companies are considering implementing graph database as their solution.
Bitnine (CEO, Cheolsun Kang) announced the release of AgensGraph v1.0 on January 16th. AgensGraph v1.0 will deliver future-oriented value and grow to become the global leader. AgensGraph has already drawn significant attention at the following conferences: PGConf Silicon Valley, Graph Day in Austin.
We interviewed the CEO, Cheolsun Kang about the Graph Database, its value and Bitnine’s plan for 2017.
Q.1. Please tell us about Bitnine.
Bitnine develops cutting-edge technology of Graph Database and leads the Data Science industry with a globalized R&D center. Bitnine established the R&D center and the Marketing team in Silicon Valley, California to collaborate with leading global companies. Bitnine also has proven consulting and technical support teams that have been cooperating with the global clients. We are ready to serve and troubleshoot for our clients from day one when they implement our solutions.
Q.2. The Graph Database is not recognized enough. Would you tell us about the Graph Database?
The world today is hyper-connected. Businesses generate more data in the graph structure. The Graph Database is an innovative system to organize and process data. The Graph Database focuses on the relationships between data, which the conventional database cannot handle efficiently. More and more companies are seeking the solution for this highly-connected data. Graph Database is a new trend in the data science industry. Combined with the visualization solutions, it offers the more suitable and intuitive data management environment. The Graph Database is the core technology which enables us to analyze staggeringly increasing data effectively and swiftly.
Q.3. AgensGraph v1.0 was announced this month. Please introduce AgensGraph? A
gensGraph is a hybrid database based on the open source database, PostgreSQL. It is an integrated database with the relational data and the graph data models. AgensGraph facilitates all the existing features in the abundant eco-system of PostgreSQL, which is enterprise-ready database. It is the first multi-model DBMS with these powerful features. Bitnine will continue to enhance the performance of AgensGraph by upgrading the versions constantly.
Q.4 What is the difference of AgensGraph from others? And what is the response of the market?
The users can combine the SQL and the Cypher query language in a single query. It is more than the convenience of data modeling. We demonstrated that the combined queries would dramatically boost the traversal performance. This means that the execution speed of AgensGraph is superior to that of leading competitors. We have tested the performance using the LDBC Social Network Benchmark standard. Bitnine will announce the result with details soon.
There is a misunderstanding that a multi-model DBMS based on the relational database is not optimized for graph data processing. Bitnine conquered this obstacle by applying the advanced query optimization technology of PostgreSQ. AgensGraph shows faster query performance than the existing graph databases.
Our clients expect AgensGraph will bring solutions for their current challenges in the areas of cyber-attack detection, manufacturing analytic, supply chain management, text mining, CRM, and so on. Bitnine believes AgensGraph will place a milestone in the database industry in 2017.
Q.5. What is your plan for 2017?
Bitnine plans to hold a conference, named ‘AgensDay’ in Silicon Valley in August 2017. This conference will be the biggest event by Bitnine to promote AgensGraph and Agens Solutions. Bitnine will announce AgensAnalyzer (Big Data Analytic Module) and AgensManager (Graph Data Visualization Tool) in the conference as well. Bitnine sponsors the Graph Database in Silicon Valley Meetup monthly to deliver informative sessions on the graph database by renowned speakers. Bitnine plans to expand the meetup locations to other cities in the US such as Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas.
