About IMI



The Open PHACTS consortium is pleased to announce a new project partner: OpenLink Software has been selected to be the Linked Data hosting provider for the online Open PHACTS platform, leveraging its well known experience in hosting high-performance and scalable linked data spaces via its Virtuoso platform for multi-model data management and integration.

"OpenLink is one of the best recognized brands in the RDF based Linked Data management space, its pedigree is inextricably linked with the very beginning of the Linked Open Data community as demonstrated by its prevalence across the entire cloud, starting with DBpedia." said Orri Erling, Virtuoso Program Manager, at OpenLink Software. "We are excited about participation in this project having worked on conversion of many of the original bio-science datasets in RDF-based linked data, which we still host, and are keen to see the Open PHACTS Platform sustained beyond the end of the project in the form of a DBpedia-like service for the global pharmacological community," he added.
