One of the first problems a developer encounters when evaluating a graph database is how to construct a graph efficiently. Recognizing this need in 2014, TinkerPop's Stephen Mallette penned a series of blog posts titled "Powers of Ten" which addressed several bulkload techniques for Titan. Since then Titan has gone away, and the open source graph database landscape has evolved significantly. Do the same approaches stand the test of time? In this session, we will take a deep dive into strategies for loading data of various sizes into modern Apache TinkerPop graph systems. We will discuss bulkloading with JanusGraph, the scalable graph database forked from Titan, to better understand how its architecture can be optimized for ingestion.
