By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Install and configure FlockDB
- Understand the unique features of FlockDB, relative to other graph databases such Neo4j
- Use FlockDB to maintain a large graph dataset
- Use FlockDB together with MySQL to provide provide distributed storage capabilities
- Query, create and update extremely fast graph edges
- Scale FlockDB horizontally for use in on-line, low-latency, high throughput web environments
- Database engineers
