The storage part in a graph databases is tricky (many to many
relationships problem) and there is not that much information on how
to handle that problem.

The other parts in a database such as transactions and ACID features
works pretty much the same be it a graph database, key-value store or
RDBMS/ODBMS (or at least the same techniques can be used). There is a
vast amount of information available about these topics so if you can
specify a bit more what you are interested in I may know some good
