I believe scalability and performance in RDF stores IS a major problem and I think we should try to gather as much information about it as possible. Roger, could we start to collect resources in the TAG wiki about it?
So far I am aware of the following +/- recent articles:
* other interesting papers from the same conference "Practical and Scalable Semantic Systems Service": http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/psss03/proceedings
Most of them are sceptical about having large scale rdf stores in the intermediate future and usually suggest to go with a specialised stores for specific appllication purposes. Especially the combination of storing large amounts of data based on complex ontologies with good inference/reasoning/querying support seems unreasonable in a generic solution.
But maybe Oracle can do much better. Has anyone heard claims about their performance yet?
