Don't miss the conference about Graph Systems lead by Bogdan Arsintescu, Partner Director of Engineering at Microsoft.


Graph Systems are essential for LinkedIn, with its over 1B member social network. LinkedIn has built bespoke scale-out graph systems throughout its existence to enrich its social network data and provide value to its members. 

We showcase the graph systems custom built at LinkedIn. We summarize the lessons we learned and the evolution of graphs over the last 15 years and three generations of graph systems. We discuss how the analysts, data scientists and developers at LinkedIn interact and benefit from these systems, how we provide the scale, availability and velocity of change required to build software to support the 1B LinkedIn members. The current graph is over 280B edges, with a throughput in excess of 2M QPS and “four nines” availability; the size and throughput have doubled in the last 18 months and the trends appear to accelerate. We outline how these solutions are leveraged to build Enterprise Graph solutions for the cloud.
