Washington, DC - January 21, 2014 - The new release (2.1) of Stardog, a leading RDF database, hits new scalability heights with a 50-fold increase over previous versions. Using commodity server hardware at the $10,000 price point, Stardog can manage, query, search, and reason over datasets as large as 50B RDF triples.
The new scalability increases put Stardog into contention for the largest semantic technology, linked data, and other graph data enterprise projects. Stardog's unique feature set, including reasoning and integrity constraint validation, at large scale means it will increasingly serve as the basis for complex software projects.
"We're really happy about the new scalability of Stardog," says Mike Grove, Clark & Parsia's Chief Software Architect, "which makes us competitive with a handful of top graph database systems. And our feature set is unmatched by any of them."
The new scalability work required software engineering to remove garbage collection pauses during query evaluation, which the 2.1 release also accomplishes. Along with a new hot backup capability, Stardog is more mature and production-capable than ever before.
Clark & Parsia, LLC, is a leading vendor in the area of Enterprise Semantics, linked data, and graph-based systems. With offices in Washington, DC, and Boston, C&P's graph database, Stardog, is in use in government, aerospace, energy, media, and other industries.
