Amazon ElastiCache

Amazon ElastiCache is a great managed Redis or Memcached service. ElastiCache with the Redis engine is great for caching expensive responses or queries. It is great if you need a distributed mutex. It is great as a message broker. If you need Redis but don't have the resources to manage it yourself, consider ElastiCache. It may not be economical for very large scale installations, however.

Neo4j

Its very well suited for storing graph types relationship information, such as a group of people and their relationships. Data modeling this sort of information in a traditional SQL database is a pain and inefficient. Using Neo4J allows for efficient modeling of data while providing rich querying capabilities using Cypher. Its also a great fit for any programming language because of its support for REST API.It's less appropriate for any other data structure other than Graph data. So as with any DB, evaluate the data structure and query and if the querying revolves around relationships, then Neo4J is a fit. If there is more need for looking up individual nodes and their associated information, Neo4J might not be the most efficient solution in the market.

Neo4j

We've done some BOE comparisons between Neo4j, Titan, and OrientDB. The general consensus was that Titan is too unweildy and that Neo4j beat out OrientDB by being more active and having a large community.
