Apache Rya matures open source triple store database

The name Triple Store refers to the structure of the database table. The three items (the “triple”) are subject, predicate and object. The triple store works with RDF, which is a W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standard that was originally for creating metadata for pages on the internet that can be used to express how one page connects to another. RDF is now used in a variety of ways because of its simple format.
