We like to make it easy for you to get started with OrientDB. If you’re coming from Neo4j and recently decided to make the switch to OrientDB, or if you would just like to try OrientDB with an existing Neo4j Database, our new Neo4j to OrientDB Importer makes it easy for you to import your nodes & relationships.
