GraphDB™ Standard allows organizations to manage tens of billions of semantic triples on one commodity server. RDF statements can be loaded and queried at scale simultaneously.
GraphDB™ Standard performs querying and reasoning operations using file based indices. The inferencing engine also supports “Same As” functionality allowing for the identification of two or more URIs that represent the same entity even when they reside in different documents. In the table below, you can review a summary of the features supported in our Standard edition including the retraction of RDF statements. You can receive a free evaluation of GraphDB™ Standard by submitting the evaluation request form.
For additional detail on GraphDB™ Standard, refer to our documentation: GraphDB™ Standard Fact Sheet and Documentation. GraphDB™ is also available hosted on AWS and is known as GraphDB™ Cloud.
GraphDB™ Enterprise is an enterprise level triplestore proven to scale in production environments where simultaneous loading, querying and inferencing of RDF statements occur in real time. “Enterprise” has been architected to run on an enterprise replication cluster scaling to any number of master and worker nodes. Replete with failover, backup and recovery, GraphDB™ Enterprise has reliable data preservation, consistency and integrity.
This enterprise level triplestore allows you to manage extremely high volumes of RDF statements with support for inferencing and retraction of statements that are no longer valid. Please refer to the chart below which summarizes some of the more important details about Enterprise.

The Self-Service Semantic Suite (S4) provides a set of services for low-cost, on-demand text analytics and metadata management on the cloud.
GraphDB™ Cloud ™ has all the features of Graph DB™ Standard with the added advantage that it has been architected to run on the Amazon Cloud as a pay-by-the-hour service. GraphDB™ Cloud can be purchased as an AMI running on a variety of Amazon EC2 server instances: from 2-core / 8 GB RAM up to 8-core / 64 GB RAM. Organizations often want to develop and test in the cloud before bringing projects in-house with an on premises installation. GraphDB™ Cloud is perfect for running limited-time projects or low-volume experiments in a production-quality setting without an investment in licenses or hardware. All GraphDB™ Cloud instances are designed to store data on user-supplied Amazon EBS volumes (network attached storage), so that your data is persisted and safe even if the instance is not running.
GraphDB™ Lite is a free RDF triplestore that allows you to store up to 100 million triples on a desktop computer. This version of GraphDB™ can be easily deployed using JAVA. SPARQL 1.1 queries are performed in memory, not using files based indices. Reasoning operations for inferencing are supported in GraphDB™ Lite.
A summary of supported features can be found below. For more detail on GraphDB™ Lite, our free RDF triplestore, please refer to our documentation: GraphDB™ Fact Sheet and Documentation. To manage larger sets of RDF statements and for additional features including connectors to content stores, retraction of RDF statements, API plugins and reliable and consistent data preservation, consider trying GraphDB™ Standard or GraphDB™ Enterprise editions.
Performs query and reasoning operations using file-based indice. Optimized support for data integration through owl:sameAs API plugin framework public classes and interfaces. Developers can extend GraphDB with their own logic and integration with text mining pipelines.
