  Report on Scalability and Storage: Survey of Free Software / Open
    Source RDF Storage systems 
  Dave Beckett

     This report surveys the state of semantic web storage for RDF /
     triple data using existing free software tools. It takes a
     practical approach by targeting the work to the needs of
     developers, answering frequently asked questions related to this
     subject. The report first reviews previous work in surveying
     semantic web data, schema and triple stores, then gives an
     overview of the major systems with their feature set and
     maturity and then uses that information to provide a set of FAQs
     with answers related to storing semantic web data.

This is the first public release of this survey which is intended to
be updated over the lifetime of the project.

Given the recent discussion on RDF data, you might like to check
section 7 which contains pointers to datasets (or likely ones) that
could be used for testing such stores.  We are considering gathering
some of these and making it available for such a purpose.

This work was funded by the EU Information Society Technologies (IST-7)
programme as part of the Semantic Web Advanced Development Europe
(SWAD-Europe) project.  For more information see
