General Overview

Blazegraph uses a native graph database with an underlying B-tree-based implementation. It is not required to store the full graph database in memory. The general guidance is to get a machine with the fastest disk you that is cost-effective for your application. In many high-end settings, customers have used devices such as FusionIO to achieve very high performance for loading and query.

Data Sizing Guidance

As a rule-of-thumb, we use 60 Bytes per Triple as an estimate. Actual size will vary based on data and the options used when configuring the namespace, i.e. quads, RDF, text indexing, etc.

Triples Est. Size on Disk (GBs)
10M .558 GB
100M 5.58 GB
1B 55.8 GB
