Neo4j Launches in the Beta Docker Store

After a little less than a year in development, Neo4j has become available on the Docker Store, which is still in beta.

Navigating today's database scaling options can be a nightmare. Explore the compromises involved in both traditional and new architectures.

We're excited to have been chosen by the team at Docker to be included as a launch partner in the brand new Docker Store. Although it is still in limited beta, we wanted to share a bit on why we're enthusiastic about the new store and Docker as a platform for distribution and operations.

Docker + Neo4j: A Long History

Our Developer Relations team launched the Community Edition Neo4j Docker image in beta a little less than a year ago. After months of iterating based on the feedback from the community, our engineering team launched the Official Repo, with support for both Community Edition and Enterprise Edition, including full cluster and high availability (HA) capabilities.

We've been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from the community. Developers at a wide variety of organizations have used the image, and we have more than 1 million pulls from the Docker repo.

We even built the Graph Your Network application, scaling from a handful to hundreds of simultaneous Docker containers running Neo4j. This application allows users to load their Twitter activity into Neo4j and analyze it with the Cypher query language. If you're just looking to evaluate Neo4j, our 7-day Sandbox uses a similar architecture.

Why We're Excited About the New Docker Store

We're excited about the Docker Store as it means great things for Docker users – you'll see Neo4j among other high-quality images, and have the ability to rate and review these images as well as provide feedback to the vendors. Perhaps most importantly, we'll have the ability to push out new releases to you much faster through an automated publication workflow!

Let us know what you end up doing with the Neo4j Docker image by mentioning #Docker and #Neo4j in your tweets!
