graph database


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.

graph database

A database structure that ties together relationships between data much more thoroughly than a relational database (RDBMS). There are fewer restraints, and data elements can be linked in almost any manner. When using a relational or NoSQL database, this connectedness has to be programmed into the queries and applications in order to derive the same results.
