Performance Enhancements & Service Layer Optimizations

In the month of March, we rolled to production two key service layer optimizations to the Diffbot Knowledge Graph architecture. Both radically reduce response time to queries and enrichment requests. The first is called the KG Engine, a look-up service that enables us to improve the performance and scalability of both Enhance and DQL and to update the graph between builds for Organization and Person data. The second is a new search indexing layer that aggregates all Articles in the KG that were crawled &/or published in the last six months which reduces response times when querying recent news.
