Tuesday, April 19, 2016

New enhanced GraphDB ver. 7 empowers enterprises, users and developers with even easier-to-use tools for Big Data analytics. 

Ontotext is  proud to release GraphDB 7 with major enhancements specifically designed to deliver even easier-to-use database management to organizations, users and developers. GraphDB’s ver. 7 makes database setup and data access even easier, further improves implementation and monitoring of business critical services, and is updated to use and support the latest versions of the relevant W3C standards and third-party open source libraries integrated with GraphDB.

GraphDB is a semantic graph database that serves organizations to store, organize and manage content and data in the form of semantically enriched smart data. A non-relational (NoSQL) database, GraphDB handles massive loads, queries and inferencing in real time, allowing for seamless integration of disparate data silos and a holistic 360-degree view of information.

The new release offers new tools to access and explore data, eliminating the need to know everything about the dataset before start working with it. GraphDB 7 enables users to navigate their way through third-party and any other dataset regardless of data volumes, which makes it a powerful Big Data analytics tool. Ver.7 offers visual exploration of the loaded data schema – ontology, interactive query builder for better entity retrieval, and full support for RDF 1.1 allowing smooth import of a huge number of public Open Data as well as proprietary Linked Datasets.

GraphDB 7 allows easier installation and database setup in a one-click installation step. Setting-up the new version is as easy as the setup of any other application on a PC or server. Ver. 7 has a simplified deployment model with every feature necessary embedded. GraphDB 7 runs as a native application on Windows, MacOS and Linux-based OS.

GraphDB 7 improves efficiency in monitoring of business critical services. The new version of the semantic graph database adds automated SLA monitoring and has new intuitive Database health checks. Ver.7 features a powerful yet simpler server side database configuration over HTTP and improved database logging.

From a technical standpoint, GraphDB 7 integrates the latest versions of all third-party open source libraries integrated with GraphDB. GraphDB 7 is upgraded to Sesame 2.8 with all changes in its API. It runs with the latest versions of Lucene, Solr and Elastic and applies the latest W3C standards.
