Algebraix Vaunts Speedy Results
August 16, 2012
It looks like Algebraix is calling out competitor Revelytix, who is specifically mentioned as having been trounced in Sys-Con Media’s “Algebraix Data Announces Record-Breaking Semantic Benchmark Performance.” Algebraix boasts that, for 80 percent of queries, their benchmark test outperformed Revelytix’s best published results twelvefold. Yep, a dozen times faster. That does seem pretty fast.
The benchmark test was performed on Algebraix’s SPARQL Server RDF database using an Amazon Cloud EC2 Large hardware configuration. This setup is identical, the write up states, to the one used in the multivendor SP2Bench performance comparisons that Revelytix had published. The press release crows:
“Furthermore, Algebraix Data’s SPARQL Server is the only database to have executed all of SP2Bench queries, including all six of the queries that were not successfully executed within the Revelytix guidelines by other Resource Description Framework (RDF) databases. . . .
“‘The outstanding SPARQL Server performance is a direct result of the algebraic techniques enabled by our patented Algebraix technology,’ said Chris Piedmonte, co-founder and CTO of Algebraix Data.”
Algebraix Data is headquartered in Austin, TX. In 2004, the company was founded on the vision of real-time access to data, structured and unstructured, in a distributed, collaborative, and dynamic environment. Their technology has garnered seven US patents.
