OWLIM is the most scalable semantic repository. It includes triple store, inference engine and SPARQL query engine. It is packaged as a Storage and Inference Layer (SAIL) for the Sesame RDF database. OWLIM uses the TRREE engine to perform RDFS, OWL DLP, OWL Horst reasoning and OWL 2 RL. The most expressive language supported is OWL 2 RL, Containing RDFS. OWLIM offers configurable reasoning support and performance. It comes in two editions: SwiftOWLIM and BigOWLIM. SwiftOWLIM is free to download and use. A copy of BigOLWIM can also be obtained upon request for evaluation, development and research purposes.
