MOCHA2017: The Mighty Storage Challenge at ESWC 2017

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 769)


The aim of the Mighty Storage Challenge (MOCHA) at ESWC 2017 was to test the performance of solutions for SPARQL processing in aspects that are relevant for modern applications. These include ingesting data, answering queries on large datasets and serving as backend for applications driven by Linked Data. The challenge tested the systems against data derived from real applications and with realistic loads. An emphasis was put on dealing with data in form of streams or updates.
