What is Graph Database

Graph databases enable data points to simultaneously connect to multiple other data points rather than to just one other data point at a time, as within a traditional relational database. And by connecting to multiple data points at once, users can more easily discover relationships between data - for example, information about a single customer captured by disparate sources or multiple customers who might be part of the same family - resulting in speed and accuracy.

Traditionally classified as a type of NoSQL database, graph databases are sometimes referred to as triple stores. That's because this type of database uses a special index that stores information about nodes, edges and the relationship between them in groups of three.
