Hi Paul,

In my experience, most concurrent triple stores perform fairly 
comparably well for queries. However, if you do plan to load a huge 
amount of RDF data into your triple, say more than 10 million, then I 
would suggest you get a powerful computer first.

A 64-bit computer with >15GB memory should give you some reasonable 
performance. And you can also play with some disk partition.

I wrote some notes a while back, benchmarked on Jena TDB:

Hope it can be helpful to you.

cheers,

Jun
