Modern graph databases are designed to handle the complexity but still not for the amount of data. When hitting a certain size of a graph, many dedicated graph databases reach their limits in vertical or, most common, horizontal scalability. In this talk, we will provide a brief overview of current approaches and their limits towards scalability. Dealing with complex data in a complex system doesn't make things easier... but more fun finding a solution.

Meet Your Speaker:

Max Neunhöffer, Senior Developer and Architect of ArangoDB Max Neunhöffer is a mathematician turned database developer. In his academic career he has worked for 16 years on the development and implementation of new algorithms in computer algebra. During this time he has juggled a lot with mathematical big data like group orbits containing trillions of points. Recently he has returned from St. Andrews to Germany, has shifted his focus to NoSQL databases, and now helps to develop ArangoDB. He has spoken at international conferences including Strata London or MesosCon Seattle.
