The Web Graph Database


Term: Store

In InfoGrid, Store is the core (low-level) storage abstraction. It essentially defines a name-value map.

InfoGrid provides many different implementations of the Store abstraction, including:

  • in-memory only
  • mapping to relational databases
  • mapping to grid storage
  • mapping to a raw file system
  • delegation to another Store.

On a higher level, InfoGrid provides MeshBase as the core data management abstraction, and MeshObject as the core data element. Any implementation of Store may be used without changes to the API.
