GraphConnect Europe 2015, Introducing Azure Beta & Neo4j Server Logs

GrapheneDB is proud to sponsor GraphConnect Europe 2015 (London, May 7th), the only conference that focuses on the rapidly growing world of graph databases and applications that make sense of connected data.

If you’re at the conference, please find us and say hello. We’d love to chat about graphs and have swag with us for you!

We’ve also got some great news to announce!

GrapheneDB on Azure now available in beta

Neo4j Databases Now in Beta on Microsoft Azure

Are you hosting your applications on Microsoft Azure? Now you can take advantage of GrapheneDB’s fully managed Neo4j hosting service, too.

Create your free Neo4j on Azure now

Microsoft Azure has been one of the most requested providers on GrapheneDB for a long time. We’re happy to announce beta availability of GrapheneDB hosted Neo4j databases on Microsoft Azure.

The service on Azure is currently in public beta with the Sandbox plans generally available in the regions East US 2 and North Europe.

Sandbox databases are a fantastic way to discover the value of GrapheneDB’s fully-managed Neo4j hosting service on Azure or get acquainted with Neo4j. In addition to having your database up and running in a few seconds you can:

  • Access to the Neo4j browser interface
  • Export and restore databases on demand
  • Access the server log files

Want to take the new Azure deployments for a spin?

If you’re already a GrapheneDB user, you can create an Azure deployment from the new database form by selecting “Microsoft Azure” as the provider.

GrapheneDB provisioning on Azure Beta

New to GrapheneDB? This link will take you through the signup process and then to the next step where you’ll be ready to provision your Azure-hosted Neo4j instance. It takes less than a minute to be up and running!

Need production-grade Neo4j hosting on Azure?

Besides the free Sandbox plans, we’re also offering our Performance plans to a select set of beta customers. We plan to make the rest of our plans generally available as soon as possible. Get in touch.

New Feature: Neo4j Log Files

We’d also like to introduce you to our newest feature: Neo4j Server Logs.

This feature enables GrapheneDB users to diagnose and debug issues by providing access to the Neo4j server log files from the user interface.

Streaming of Neo4j Log files on GrapheneDB

We want to make it easy for our users to access the log files when necessary–for instance, when debugging a custom plugin or server extension, or when trying to determine if there are any errors.

How it Works

There are two ways to access the log files:

  • In-browser streaming (similar to the tail UNIX command ): Streaming can be paused to scroll up/down, examine or copy certain sections of the file.
  • File download: Enables you to download the files to your computer for further inspection.

We provide access to the following log files:

  • messages.log
  • neo4j-0.0.log

Server logs are available on all our plans.

As always, we look forward to receiving your feedback.
