Apache AGE is an open-source project for building plugins for RDBMS to process and store Graph data. Currently it supports PostgreSQL for RDBMS and openCypher for Graph data structure.
It is designed to run a path finding algorithm in memory and is looking to add several Graph algorithms either as a built-in function and as a Python program.
Apache AGE is also looking to expand its support for RDBMS including MariaDB.

What is Apache AGE?
Apache AGE is an extension for PostgreSQL that enables users to leverage a graph database on top of the existing relational databases. AGE is an acronym for A Graph Extension and is inspired by Bitnine's AgensGraph, a multi-model database fork of PostgreSQL. The basic principle of the project is to create a single storage that handles both the relational and graph data model so that the users can use the standard ANSI SQL along with openCypher, one of the most popular graph query languages today.
Since AGE is based on the powerful PostgreSQL RDBMS, it is robust and fully featured. AGE is optimized for handling complex connected graph data. It provides plenty of robust databases features essential to the database environment, including ACID transactions, multi-version concurrency control (MVCC), stored procedure, triggers, constraints, sophisticated…
