SW-Store is an NSF-supported project whose goal is to manage and query
Semantic Web data.
We explore how common SW
queries and applications such as reasoning and biological data integration
can be built into the database. We are particularly interested in scaling
Semantic Web applications across a shared-nothing cluster of machines, and using open source tools such as Hadoop to query this data. The research includes scaling both analytical queries and transactional processing over a large cluster of machines.
This work is funded
by the NSF under grant IIS-0845643.
The title of this NSF award is: "Architecting A Database Management
System for Semantic Web Data". The start date is February 15, 2009 and the
end date is January 31, 2014 (on a year-by-year continuing basis).
