Halyard

CI Coverage

Halyard is an extremely horizontally scalable triple store with support for named graphs, designed for integration of extremely large semantic data models and for storage and SPARQL 1.1 querying of complete Linked Data universe snapshots. Halyard implementation is based on Eclipse RDF4J framework and Apache HBase database, and it is completely written in Java.

Get started

Download and unzip the latest halyard-sdk-<version>.zip bundle to a Apache Hadoop cluster node with configured Apache HBase client.

Halyard is expected to run on an Apache Hadoop cluster node with configured Apache HBase client. Apache Hadoop and Apache HBase components are not bundled with Halyard. The runtime requirements are:

  • Apache Hadoop version 2.5.1 or higher
  • Apache HBase version 1.1.2 or higher
  • Java 8 Runtime

Note: Recommended Apache Hadoop distribution is the latest version of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) or Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (EMR).

See Documentation for usage examples, architecture information, and more.
