Suggestion: fix outdated comparisons

I read here https://github.com/dgraph-io/dgraph#dgraph-compared-to-other-graph-dbs that neo4j is not distributed. However, googling “distributed neo4j” gives this https://neo4j.com/docs/operations-manual/current/clustering/causal-clustering/introduction/ which seems to state otherwise.

Also reading this blog post https://blog.dgraph.io/post/neptune/ and visiting AWS Neptune doc https://aws.amazon.com/neptune/ I see ACID compliance mentioned.

Outdated or imprecise comparisons are not helpful to build trust. I suggest fixing.

Thanks for bringing this up.

Neo4j is not sharded, the entire data must reside on a single server. Neo4j can have full replicas, which is not horizontal scalability. A distributed system is typically understood to be sharded, not just replicated.

Amazon Neptune’s initial release didn’t mention ACID transactions. I’ll update the blog to mention that they do provide ACID compliance.

Update: I’ve clarified Neo4j’s architecture a bit in README. https://github.com/dgraph-io/dgraph
