Earlier this month Nebula Graph raised $8M in a series pre-A funding round. The lead investor was Redpoint China Ventures. Matrix Partners China, who previously contributed as an angel investor, also contributed to this series pre-A round.

Nebula Graph is an open-source graph database. It was developed by VEsoft Inc. engineers. The team collectively has many years of leadership experience at some of the world’s most recognizable technology companies, such as Alibaba, Facebook, Huawei, and IBM.

Nebula Graph Advantages

Nebula Graph adopted an open source distributed architecture. This is a strength allowing it to securely process data sets with more capable performance compared to any competing graph database. This makes it the most capable big data analytics database in the world.

Nebula Graph’s distributed high-availability architecture is also designed for scalability and recovery without disruption, ensuring the best business continuity. This deployment model and architecture make it the most reliable graph database in the world.

In addition, Nebula Graph created its nGQL programmable query language. It is very much like the common SQL query language but designed for graphs. So, this helps ensure there is little learning curve to get started. Nebula Graph is also provided with Nebula Graph Studio, a visualization application that combines data imports with graph exploration. This delivers a better understanding of data over textual formats.

The Graph Database Market and Applications

Graph databases are disrupting the billion-dollar market for the traditional Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). This is because large organizations today require big data and business analytics exceeding RDBMS capabilities. Nebula Graph has been launched for this purpose.

Graph databases are different from RDBMS databases because they store deep relationship characteristics about data within data itself. A graph database can efficiently manage millions of transactions or more and uncover how data sets relate to each other.

Nebula Graph is ideal for a CIO seeking to uncover the value of connected business data. Data Architects are another ideal user, who typically look to process connected data cost-effectively. Finally, Data Scientists will find it useful to explore the value buried in connected data.

Nebula Graph Real-World Usage

There are many markets that have large amounts of meaningless information stored in separate silos, ideal for Nebula Graph to mine it for meaningful results. This is true from finance, healthcare, and government agencies to Internet-of-Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and more. Because of Nebula Graph’s proven capabilities, some of the world’s leading Internet properties are already using it in their real-world applications.

Xiaohongshu, a large user-generated-content community (UGC community) in Asia has countless relationships on the platform, from followers to likes. They use Nebula Graph for anti-fraud in their marketing. It prevents fraudulent users from stealing coupons to resell them. They also use it to detect bots and bot content.  Youzan is a popular Asia-based ecommerce platform selling a variety of products. They are using Nebula Graph as a real time product recommendation engine. Finally, Qichacha is a popular business information inquiry platform. The company is using Nebula Graph to discover insider trading transactions.

Nebula Graph Pricing and Availability

Nebula Graph has been in beta mode since mid-2019. Nebula Graph v1.0 is now commercially proven and immediately available under Apache 2.0 licensing in the open source community. Plans are that, at some point, it will also be made available as a cloud service. It is currently available to businesses in North America, Europe, and Asia.
