Synonyms: AllegroGraph RDFStore

AllegroGraph is a closed source Graph database, an emerging category of databases. In contrast with a Relational database, a graph database considers each stored item to have any number of relationships. These relationships can be viewed as links, which together form a network, or graph. AllegroGraph is designed to store RDF triples, a standard format for Linked Data. A custom browser, Gruff, is available for viewing the graph. AllegroGraph is currently in use in Open source projects, commercial projects and Department of Defense projects. It is also the storage component for the TwitLogic project that is bringing the Semantic Web to Twitter data.
