Description

Bigdata® is a horizontally-scaled, general purpose storage and computing fabric for ordered data (B+Trees), designed to operate on either a single server or a cluster of commodity hardware. Bigdata® uses dynamically partitioned key-range shards in order to remove any realistic scaling limits - in principle, bigdata® may be deployed on 10s, 100s, or even thousands of machines and new capacity may be added incrementally without requiring the full reload of all data. The Bigdata® RDF database supports RDFS and some OWL reasoning through an internal rules-based reasoner, high-level query (SPARQL), and datum level provenance. (Open source. Support and commercial licensing available on request.)
