Blazegraph: Creating a Graph Database Application Training Course


Blazegraph is an open source, Java-based RDF graph database for storing and representing data with complex relationships. It supports Blueprints and RDF/SPARQL 1.1.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use Blazegraph to capture complex data in graph format for retrieval from a number of sample applications. All exercises will be carried out hands-on in a live-lab environment.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure Blazegraph in standalone mode, clustered mode (optional) or embedded mode (optional)
  • Create, test and deploy a sample application to query complex data in a Blazegraph data store
  • Understand how to leverage GPU (graphics processing unit) to accelerate computations
