GraphMap: scalable iterative graph processing using NoSQL
Despite having several distributed graph processing frameworks, scalable iterative processing of large graphs is a challenging problem since the graph and intermediate data need a global view of the graph topology in distributed memory. Although some systems support out-of-core iterative computations, they use a single machine and often require fast storage. In this paper, we present a new distributed iterative graph computation framework, called GraphMap, that utilizes a disk-based NoSQL database system for scalable graph processing while ensuring competitive performance. Extensive experiments on several real-world graphs show that GraphMap is more scalable and often faster than existing distributed memory-based systems for various graph processing workloads.
