Building dynamic Web 3.0 databases

This world is too complex to be described by rigid tables. The 40-year old relational technology may be here to stay, but not to rule.

A few new data storage technologies are currently getting attention, in particular graph databases such as AllegroGraph and Neo4j that allow to “structure on the fly” by using a multi-relational graph data model.

Check this slide share presentation: Graph Databases and the Future of Large-Scale Knowledge Management, by Marko Rodriguez from Los Alamos National Laboratory.
