Managing content metadata in Amazon Neptune

Presenter(s): Tuomo Virolainen (YLE), Matias Kainulatinen (YLE), Teemu Kalvas (Yle)

At YLE, three closely interrelated microservices used for managing and serving content metadata were migrated from RDS to the Amazon Neptune graph database. The project was conducted to build competence on graph technologies, to build infrastructure for enabling novel use cases for the data, to make handling of messy data manageable, and to make complex queries more performant. This presentation discusses the findings and lessons learned from the project.
