IBM, our partnership, took the wraps off a new cloud-based graph service based on open source Titan and Apache TinkerPop technologies on Jul 27. Called IBM Graph, the new service is suitable for production graph workloads of any size. But IBM is also focusing on making graph technology easy to use and lowering the barrier of entry into the graph world.
What is IBM Graph?
IBM Graph is a powerful, enterprise-grade IBM service that unleashes the power of data connections by letting you store, query, and visualize data points, connections, and properties in a property graph. It enables you to build better applications, such as recommendation and fraud detection engines, without requiring you to manage an on-premises database.

Powered by Apache TinkerPop
IBM Graph is based on the Apache TinkerPop™ stack for building high-performance graph applications.
This means that the service provides you with a set of simplified HTTP APIs, an Apache TinkerPop v3 compatible API, and the full Apache TinkerPop v3 query language. The service gives you flexibility and capabilities, based on a familiar environment. Using the Bluemix dashboard, you can bind IBM Graph to your applications easily.
What can you do using the service?
With the IBM Graph service, you can store data as vertices or nodes connected by edges, rather than the more traditional form of storing the data in tabular form using rows and columns. You can also add and store properties in the form of key/value pairs associated with the data, for both vertices and edges.
The result is a property graph capability that lets you see more details about data relationships, and see those details more easily. The graph helps you perform increasingly complex analysis, by helping simplify what would otherwise be hard problems and applications.
You can develop database applications that are deployed in the cloud. This approach helps reduce the cost and complexity barriers for developers. Using the service, your application developers have access to an API that can work on any platform, and be used by any application that can make HTTP requests.
The result is a developer-friendly service that can be used to create user-friendly applications, for addressing complex analysis problems.
What it can do for your business
IBM Graph unleashes the power of data connections by letting the customer store, query, and visualizes data points, connections, and properties in a property graph – as an enterprise-grade IBM service. It is an easy-to-use, fully-managed graph database service for storing and querying data points, their connections, and properties.
