AllegroGraph
Specific characteristics
Competitive advantages

AllegroGraph is uniquely suited to support adhoc queries through SPARQL, Prolog and languages like JavaScript. AllegroGraph uses sorted quintuple indices that will index every primary and non-primary field. So users never have to worry about whether a certain field is indexed or not. There are 6 default indices that are in general sufficient for set based query index to execute almost any adhoc query.

One of the most powerful features of AllegroGraph is that it is possible to mix Geospatial, Temporal, Social Network Analytics, and Reasoning, all in the same query (SPARQL or Prolog). An example:

Find whether the most important friend of Sonya (using the SNA centrality statistic) made a payment within a 100 miles of Rotterdam, NY (using geospatial) within the last 10 years (temporal).

This would be impossible in any other graph database, RDF store, document store or Hadoop like solution in such a concise way.

  • AllegroGraph - Combines GeospatialTemporal, and SNA into a single Golden query.

  • W3C standards based query language and data format via SPARQL and RDF.

  • GRUFF - Data explorer, Graph Visualization, Graphical Query Generation

  • AllegroGraph has a built-in Rule Based System on top of an ISO compliant Prolog.  Users can write rules and stored procedures in Prolog and make them available to other rules and/or users.

  • Triple Level Security

  • True Durability in AllegroGraph - Many RDF and Graph DBMS systems to NOT write transaction logs for every transaciton, so in essence these databases are NOT durable.   Experiment - Perform multiple commits per second and run monitor "vmstat 1" to look at blocks in and out (column - io bi/bo).
