iLOD: InterPlanetary File System based Linked Open Data Cloud

Jamal A. Nasir; John P. McCrae

The proliferation of the World Wide Web and the Semantic Web applications has led to an increase in distributed services and datasets. This increase has put the infrastructural load in terms of availability, immutability, and security, and these challenges are being failed by the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud due to the brittleness of its decentralisation. In this work, we present iLOD: a peer-to-peer decentralized storage infrastructure using the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). iLOD is a dataset sharing system that leverages content-based addressing to support a resilient internet, and can speed up the web by getting nearby copies. In this study, we empirically analyze and evaluate the availability limitations of LOD and propose a distributed system for storing and accessing linked datasets without requiring any centralized server.
