Aurelius is founded on the idea that effective experts in computing should be well versed in both theory (computer science) and practice (software engineering). Our team is composed of classically trained computer scientists who are also world-class engineers. It is because of this mixture that our academic contributions in the fields of graph theory, network science, and distributed systems are able to directly effect the development of our open source graph-based products. An Aurelius subscription provides unique access to and support from our graph-oriented people, research, and technology.

Supported Technologies

Titan is a collection of interoperable graph technologies that can be deployed on a multi-machine compute cluster. Below is a list of the technologies that Aurelius currently supports in its subscription package. Please note that while many members of Aurelius are committers to TinkerPop, the TinkerPop suite is used across multiple graph database vendors. As such, TinkerPop features can not be escalated through this subscription. All other subscription offerings would apply.

Aurelius Graph Cluster

Titan is an OLTP distributed graph database capable of supporting tens of thousands of concurrent users interacting with a single massive-scale graph represented over a cluster of machines. The current distribution’s pluggable storage architecture provides connectivity to Apache Cassandra, Apache HBase, and Oracle’s BerkeleyDB. Titan supports the full TinkerPop stack of technologies.

Faunus is an OLAP analytics engine for processing Titan property graphs using Hadoop. Graphs are analyzed using a MapReduce implementation of the Gremlin graph traversal language. General use-cases include computing graph derivations/transformations and global graph statistics.

Fulgora is a compression-based, in-memory graph processor capable of storing billions of edges within the memory confines of a distributed memory grid. Fulgora is optimized for the execution of massively threaded, global graph algorithms.

TinkerPop is a suite of graph-based technologies to which many of the members of Aurelius contribute. The TinkerPop stack is utilized in all of the Aurelius-specific products.
