A graph database is an excellent tool for visually representing the relationships between certain entities (known as vertices and nodes). Titan, meanwhile, is a scalable graph database that excels in storing and querying hundred of billions of graphs with vertices and edges across multi-machine clusters.
AWS is extending Titan’s functionality by creating a DynamoDB storage backend for Titan. Storing Titan graphs into DynamoDB lets you manage them easily. No need to worry about building, running, or maintaining large database clusters yourself; DynamoDB can do that for you, so you can focus on more vital tasks.
The backend itself is available here. It’s compatible with Titan versions 0.4.4 and 0.5.4. and with Windows, OSX, and Linux. AWS is also providing a CloudFormation template that will create an EC2 instance containing a Titan/Rexster stack and the DynamoDB plugin.
