Saving Large Semantic Data in Cloud: A Survey of the Main DBaaS Solutions


  • Bogdan IANCU


  • Tiberiu Marian GEORGESCU



In the last decades, the evolution of ICT has been spectacular, having a major impact on all the other sectors of activity. New technologies have emerged, coming up with solutions to existing problems and opening up new opportunities. This article discusses solutions that combine big data, semantic web and cloud computing technologies. The authors analyze various possibilities of storing large volumes of data in triplestore databases, which are currently the matter of choice for storing semantic web data. The paper first presents the existing solutions for installing triplestores on the premises and then focuses on triplestores as DBaaS (in cloud). Comparative analyzes are made between the various identified solutions. This paper provides useful means for choosing the most appropriate database solution for semantic web data representation, both on premises or as DBaaS.
