Nebula Graph takes another step to lead global graph database market with the release of v3.0.0

HANGZHOU, China – Feb 16, 2022 – Nebula Graph, the world’s most capable graph database, announced today the general availability of Nebula Graph v3.0.0. This latest release builds on the success of the previous version and is designed to support even larger graph data sets in a wider range of use cases.

Nebula Graph v3.0.0 extends this revolution in graph database technology with a host of new features and improvements, including improved performance, simplified management and monitoring, and significantly enhanced scalability.

Nebula Graph is an open-source graph database developed by Vesoft Inc. It is the world’s only large-scale graph database solution with a latency of milliseconds. Companies like Tencent, Meituan, JD Digits, and Kuaishou are already using Nebula Graph to boost their graph data processing capabilities.

“With Nebula Graph, we set out to create a graph database that can easily adapt to various use cases, with the ability to scale out on demand. Over the past year, we’ve continued to enhance Nebula Graph’s functionality and performance in response to customer needs. Nebula Graph v3.0.0 is the culmination of over a year’s worth of enhancement requests, feature suggestions, and bug fixes from our customers,” said Nebula Graph founder and Chief Executive Officer Sherman Ye.

What’s new

Nebula Graph gives developers and data scientists the ability to create rich and complex applications that can understand connections between people, places, things, and concepts in their data. Nebula Graph v3.0.0 makes it even easier to support a broader range of workloads, introduces enhanced backup and restore, better support for the openCypher query language, and more fine-grained user management.

Backup and restore is a feature that many Nebula Graph adopters have been waiting for a long time. The feature is extremely helpful if developers need to migrate data across clusters or create testing environments based on production data.

Nebula Graph v3.0.0 added support for multi query parts of openCypher, allowing developers and data scientists to process multiple subqueries by using the WITH clause in a single query.

Nebula Graph v3.0.0’s new standalone mode gives developers a complete graph database experience without using any cluster deployment tools such as Docker or Kubernetes. On a single machine, developers can deploy Nebula Graph without worrying about cluster management issues such as replica configuration and load balancing. Developers can also use the standalone mode to test out Nebula Graph without the hassle of expensive and complicated cluster management tools.
