Likelihood to Recommend

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.

SQLite

I recommend the use of SQLite for embedded systems.If you need to store a large amount of data, store blobs, use triggers, handle multiple accesses at the same time, and need to optimize indexes, then I would recommend using another database system.SQLite should also be considered if the installation/configuration of a heavier database system is a problem.

Pros

Neo4j

  • Neo4j is extremely fast.
  • Neo4j has its own query language CYPHER which is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • Neo4j supports API in almost every language like Java, Python, PHP, NodeJS, etc.

SQLite

  • The biggest one has to be that it is freeware and open source as well. It means for an entry level person who wants to learn relational database and even for a team in the early development stage where security and size of the data are not much, it is a perfect fit in those cases.
  • It requires no extra configuration or space because it a server-less installation and also done in just a few mins. So, installing this is never a blocker. It is the actual lite version of SQL as the name suggests and it very powerful and capable of doing all the things which SQL can do, but lacks some of the security and advanced features.
  • It prepares the data for us in a structured form in terms of Tables with a file size less than 1 Mb for the complete database entries. It saves us a lot of physical space.
  • It is the most suitable DB for Android systems because mobile apps do not have a lot of space or resources for a separate DB, but this one integrates with the whole ecosystem very nicely and we are able to make the most out of it and that too with a file lesser than 1 Mb in size.

Cons

Neo4j

  • Better support for aggregation queries
  • Drivers for Spark where ML or more computationally heavy jobs are to be performed
  • Native support for complex properties for nodes and relationships

SQLite

  • Better data recovery when the database becomes corrupt would be ideal. I've learned to minimize it by closing the database more frequently, but it can still happen.
  • Lack of built-in data encryption.
  • SQLite is a single-user DBMS. If a multi-user system is required, then an alternative is required.

I have had a wonderful experience with SQLite because in my every project I use SQLite in the development phase because it's really fast, doesn't crash and very easy to maintain as well. It saves a lot on physical memory and dedicated server usage. It has all the basic functionality you would need to get the job done and that too at no cost at all. What more could you ask for !!!

Alternatives Considered

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.

SQLite

SQLite stacks quite well against Microsoft SQL Server management studio however we need the Microsoft security for our data MDSN documentation is poor but available.
