Day 3: Distributed High Availability

We’re going to wrap up our Neo4j investigation by learning how to make Neo4j more attuned to mission-critical uses. We’ll see how Neo4j keeps data stable via ACID-compliant transactions. Then we’ll install and configure a Neo4j high availability (HA) cluster to improve availability when serving high-read traffic. Then we’re going to look into backup strategies to ensure our data remains safe.


Neo4j is an Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable (ACID) transaction database, similar to PostgreSQL.
