All that semantic data that we will produce on the Semantic Web will need a place to stay, storage solutions can be build on top of conventional technology but will not provide fast dedicated access methods and optimized CRUD operations over RDF data. (RDF represents data in a webby form namely as a network graph with directed edges between nodes). Mulgara 2 on the other hand is a dedicated scalable RDF database that enables native Semantic Web solutions for a large number of applications. While Semantic Technologies continue to improve dramatically in the coming years and will bring us closer to the original Semantic Web vision, projects like Mulgara enable the enterprise now to migrate towards the Semantic Web.
This session will introduce the foundations of the Mulgara project technology and the details of optimizing a RDF triple store for real world application.
Besides revolutionizing the RDF storage solution world Paul Gearon in also the leader of the Chicago Semantic Web Meetup the third most popular Semantic Web Meetup in the world.
