Ontotext GraphDB 10.2 Makes it Easier to Manage and Store Data

Ontotext, a global provider of enterprise knowledge graph (EKG) technology and semantic database engines, is releasing GraphDB 10.2, empowering users to oversee system health and diagnose problems easier.

The solution also includes support for X.509 client certificate authentication, which provides greater flexibility when accessing a secured GraphDB instance.

“Graph databases play a critical role in developing a successful enterprise knowledge graph, as they serve as the underlying foundation for facilitating advanced data integration and metadata data management scenarios where an EKG is used for data fabrics or otherwise serves as a data hub between diverse data and content management systems,” said Doug Kimball, CMO, Ontotext. “The latest enhancements to GraphDB 10.2 drive even more value for our customers by making it easier for them to manage and store their internal data and information assets. Equally important, it helps them to reduce costs by lowering the amount of memory that is needed without any impact on system performance.”

Benefits of GraphDB 10.2 include:

  • Improved cluster backup and support for cloud backup: GraphDB 10.2 includes a redesigned backup and restore API that simplifies the process of creating and restoring backups in both a cluster and in a single instance environment.
  • Lower memory requirements and improved transparent memory model: In GraphDB 10.2, the default value assumes 50% of the configured maximum Java heap. The latest offering also has a default value that varies between 25% and 40% of the heap according to the maximum size of the heap available. This results in lower memory usage without sacrificing the performance benefit of a large page cache size.
  • Better monitoring and support for Prometheus: GraphDB 10.2 includes support for monitoring via Prometheus, an open-source systems monitoring and alerting toolkit adopted by many companies. The exposed metrics include memory usage, cluster health, storage space, cache statistics, slow/suboptimal queries, etc.
  • Flexible authentication options with X.509 certificates: In addition to the existing authentication options, Version 10.2 includes added support for X.509 client certificates.

GraphDB enables organizations to link diverse data, index it for semantic search, and enrich it via text analysis to build large scale knowledge graphs. With improved cluster backup and cloud support, GraphDB lowers traditional memory requirements, and provides a more transparent memory model to create both cost and power saving opportunities.
