Towards Scalability Guidelines for Semantic Data Container Management

Gunnar Brataas, Bernd Neumayr, Christoph G. Schuetz, Audun Vennesland
2018 Companion of the 2018 ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering - ICPE '18  
Semantic container management is a promising approach to organize data. However, the scalability of this approach is challenging.  ...  By scalability in this paper, we mean the expressivity and size of the semantic data containers we can handle, given a suitable quality threshold.  ...  Based on this instantiation, we provide initial measurements for producing scalability guidelines for semantic container management. The remainder of this paper is organized as follows.  ...
