Graph Database

A graph database is a specialized type of database that is designed to store and manage data using graph structures. In a graph database, data is represented as nodes (vertices) connected by relationships (edges). Each node represents an entity, and each relationship represents a connection or association between entities. Graph databases are particularly well-suited for handling complex and interconnected data, making them valuable for applications that require data modeling with many relationships and dependencies.
