We are excited to announce that as of version 3.2.0 Graphlytic Desktop is enabled for remote Neo4j instances!

From now on you can connect to your graph data deployed anywhere - on a remote server, Neo4j Sandbox, Neo4j Cloud Aura, GrapheneDB, or any other Neo4j bolt endpoint. Connecting to your remote graph with Graphlytic Desktop is now as simple as connecting your local graph data. 

Graphlytic helps professional analysts and graph enthusiasts to connect dots and get deep insights from their highly interconnected data. Our main effort is focused on making graph modeling and analytics simple, intuitive, and collaborative even for users with very limited technical skills. We are constantly adding and improving Graphlytic features based on the feedback from the graph community, users, and our vision of graphs being available for everyone. 

The opening of Graphlytic Desktop for remote Neo4j instances reflects the requests we received from our users and our above-mentioned vision. We believe that by opening Graphlytic Desktop to remote Neo4j graph instances we'll better support the adoption and democratization of graphs.

About Graphlytic

Graphlytic is a highly customizable web application for graph visualization and analysis. Users can interactively explore the graph, look for patterns with the Cypher language, or use filters to find answers to any graph question. Users with very little graph theory knowledge can start to explore the data in no time. Graph rendering is done with the Cytoscape.js library which allows us to render tens of thousands of nodes and hundreds of thousands of relationships. The application is provided in three ways: Desktop, Cloud, and Server.

Cloud instances are ideal for small teams that don't want to worry about the installation and need to get up and running in very little time.
