Wikimedia selects Blazegraph™ to Power the Wikidata Query Service

Blazegraph™ has been selected by the Wikimedia Foundation to be the graph database platform for the Wikidata Query Service. Read the Wikidata announcement here. ¬†Blazegraph™ was chosen over Titan, Neo4j, Graph-X, and others by Wikimedia in their evaluation. ¬†

We're super-psyched to be working with Wikidata and think it will be a great thing for Wikidata and Blazegraph™. See the full blog post.

3/10/2015: SYSTAP Launches MapGraph to Process Graph Data 10,000 Times Faster than Hadoop-based Technologies

SYSTAP Products and Technology

Graphs are a powerful, flexible means of representing all kinds of linked data. Helping customers achieve their business objectives with graph data is our vision and mission. SYSTAP provides Developer Support, Production Support, and Custom Services for all its software solutions.

Blazegraph™ is our ultra high-performance graph database supporting Blueprints and RDF/SPARQL APIs. It supports up to 50 Billion edges on a single machine and has a High Availability and Scale-out architecture. It is in production use for Fortune 500 customers such as EMC, Autodesk, and many others.

Mapgraph™ is our disruptive new technology to use GPUs to accelerate data-parallel graph analytics up to 10,000X faster than other approaches. It can traverse billions of edges in milliseconds. We are accepting requests for Beta customers for this technology.
