A Nine Month Progress Report on an Investigation into Mechanisms for Improving Triple Store Performance

Owens, Alisdair (2008) A Nine Month Progress Report on an Investigation into Mechanisms for Improving Triple Store Performance s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This report considers the requirement for fast, efficient, and scalable triple stores as part of the effort to produce the Semantic Web. It summarises relevant information in the major background field of Database Management Systems (DBMS), and provides an overview of the techniques currently in use amongst the triple store community. The report concludes that for individuals and organisations to be willing to provide large amounts of information as openly-accessible nodes on the Semantic Web, storage and querying of the data must be cheaper and faster than it is currently. Experiences from the DBMS field can be used to maximise triple store performance, and suggestions are provided for lines of investigation in areas of storage, indexing, and query optimisation. Finally, work packages are provided describing expected timetables for further study of these topics.
