Note: The IBM Graph service retired on November 27th, 2017, and the service is being replaced by IBM Compose for JanusGraph. See the announcement for detailed steps on how to migrate to the new service.
IBM Graph is an easy-to-use, fully managed graph database service for storing, querying, and visualizing data points, their connections, and properties. IBM Graph is based on the Apache TinkerPopâ„˘ 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 IBM Cloud dashboard, you can bind IBM Graph to your applications easily.
