"A truly great product for big data analytics with excellent documentation."

What do you like best?

We've utilized the Titan diagram for quite a long time and it's been a delight and a remunerating knowledge. It is open-source and Apache 2 authorized. You can do it in Hbase on a Hadoop group (similarity with Hadoop v1 and v2), exceptionally helpful for huge datasets or in BerkeleyDB. TitanDB utilizes Gremlin 3, the new form of a decent inquiry dialect with huge amounts of documentation, slides and recordings on youtube. The documentation is one of the areas because of which using Titan becomes really easy.

What do you dislike?

There are a couple of minor problems with Titan that I've faced in the time that I've used Titan, like there is no inherent client interface for chart perception. Having to code around gravestone issues is quite restricting. And since I also work in Node.js, it would be awesomeis Titan had a SDK for NodeJS and browser JS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Titan, I could build up an authorization framework with interminable pecking order levels that engenders the gets all the clients in a tree. Graphs helps me to take care of issues that social databases can't deal with effectively. Right now, I'm dealing with a suggestion framework and Titan permits me to give continuous proposals to the clients. Organizing connections between information.

"Graph analytics with Cassandra"

What do you like best?

TitanDB uses Gremlin 3, the new version of a good query language with tons of documentation, slides and videos on youtube. You can store your data in Cassandra, which means using a very well known database without special nodes (single point of failure). You can do it in Hbase on a Hadoop cluster (compatibility with Hadoop v1 and v2), very convenient for very large datasets or in BerkeleyDB.

What do you dislike?

TitanDB is quite complex at the beginning and it can be challenging for not very experience people as you need to deploy not only the Titan server but also a database and a search engine (Solr, ElasticSearch and Lucene). This can be challenging specially when you try to automate deployment or installation. Also, TitanDB is 1.0.0 which means a very young project prone to bugs and that should be in production with care in the beginning stages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

TitanDB is only for experience users and companies that really know what they are doing or for users that have such a huge database that cannot be easily stored in Neo4J. It's nice documented and has some examples on the webpage but it's definitely not a database to newcomers to the graph world.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

TitanDB solves data analysis on very large datasets stored on HDFS or in datasets already stored in Apache Cassandra that can be queried without big problems all will take advantage of a commodity cluster capabilities to distribute workload between all machines.

"Titan is a powerful, scalable, and feature rich graph database that is always improving."

What do you like best?

I have had the pleasure of working with Marko, Matthias, and Stephen on a project and they are really fantastic people, and they are really smart. I love the Gremlin shell and DSL. The mailing list is really responsive. We've used the Titan graph for years and it's been a pleasure and a rewarding experience.

What do you dislike?

Migrations from one version to another during the early days were painful. It was hard to modify the schema after you had created it (I don't know if this has been improved upon). Having to code around tombstone issues has been limiting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are doing analytics on user interactions with our system. The main benefit is that after you set up a rich schema, the number of different kinds of queries you can perform is staggering.

"The most scalable graph database "

What do you like best?

Titan abstracts the storage responsibilities for the specialist systems like Cassandra and HBase that make it very scalable. It is open-source and Apache 2 licensed. It also have full-text and geo-search capabilities provided by Elasticsearch, Lucene or Solr.

What do you dislike?

There are no built-in user interface for graph visualization. It may scare beginners.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Graphs helps me to solve problems that relational databases cannot handle easily. With Titan, I was able to develop a permission system with infinite hierarchy levels that propagates the accesses for all users in a tree. Right now, I working on a recommendation system and Titan allows me to provide real-time recommendations for the users.

"Leveraged Titan as the central linking mechanism between data in Master Data Management platform."

What do you like best?

We liked the pluggable storage mechanism. Specifically, the fact that it road on top of Cassandra was a huge plus. Because we already had operational support for Cassandra (monitoring, snapshotting, backups, etc.), we didn't need to figure out how to support "yet another" database.

What do you dislike?

When Datastax acquired the Titan guys, we were uncertain of Titan's future as an open source project because it appeared as though Datastax was going to close source the best of Titan and package it under DSE exclusively.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Neo4J is a bit more mature, but Titan scales bette horizontally. If you need scale, go with Titan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Master Data Management : linking many related data elements across disparate data stores to present a single consolidated view of an entity.

"Works great for large data sets"

What do you like best?

The integration with TinkerPop projects is awesome. It's super useful to use their different query languages such as gremlin and rex!

What do you dislike?

We found the speed somewhat unpredictable. However that was probably due to the backing datastore we used, Cassandra.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Distributed graph search. We used it for "Try Rhino - Powerful Music Search"
