(Tool description last modified on 2015-01-16.)
RDFox is a highly scalable in-memory RDF triple store that supports shared memory parallel OWL 2 RL reasoning. It is cross-platform software written in C++ that comes with a Java wrapper allowing for easy integration with any Java-based solution, including the OWL API.
RDFox is very fast. It can materialise LUBM-5,000 in 422s using a single core, and this reduces to only 42s when using 16 cores. It typically requires about 50 bytes per triple; e.g., it uses 49GB to store the 911M triples in the fully materialised LUBM-5,000.
