InfiniteGraph is a distributed graph database [1] implemented in Java, and is from a class of NOSQL (or Not Only SQL) data technologies [2] focused on graph data structures. Graph data typically consist of objects or things (nodes) and various relationships (edges) that may connect two or more nodes. Developers may use Infinitegraph to build web and mobile applications and services that need to solve graph problems or answer questions that may include "How am I connected to Kevin Bacon?", "Where's the nearest Starbucks?" or "What are the cheapest non-stop, roundtrip flights I can get from California to New York, leaving at 8am Tuesday, and returning by 6pm Friday?".[3]
