Innovation for the Next Web

Link Documents AND DATA

In his 2009 TED talk, Tim Berners-Lee (a.k.a. The Father of the Web) urged us onward toward the complete vision for the World Wide Web. "It's called Linked Data," he said. "I want you to make it. I want you to demand it."

We're working to achieve that vision by creating an innovation platform that can transform how you work with data and give you new advantages from advanced technology.

Carbon LDP Features


Access and manage applications and data by URIs using RESTful requests over HTTP (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE). Work with documents in Turtle, RDF XML, or JSON-LD. Configure apps, schedule server-side jobs, execute queries - everything in Carbon is RESTful.

JavaScript / TypeScript SDK

The JavaScript Software Developer's Kit, available from the npm package manager, allows you to manage RDF data using familar JavaScript and TypeScript programming techniques and tools. Build for execution within a web browser or Node.js.


Secure your application through authentication and role-based access control. You can apply inheritable access control on your application, on parent containers, and all the way down to the document level.

Visual Tools

Use time-saving tools in the Application Developer's Console, a GUI that helps you visualize and manage applications and data outside of code. Visualize your container hierarchy and click resources to inspect data.

RDF Native, NoSQL Graph Database

Data is represented and managed as documents, but stored natively as RDF triples in a NoSQL graph database. Break the shackles of rigid data schemas; add new entities and attributes on the fly. Link data with existing resources within your apps and across the web.

Query Data

Query for data across multiple documents using the SPARQL query language. Query-down for a broad view from any segment of an application or against individual documents. Query with the REST API, the JavaScript SDK, or the built-in visual SPARQL query editor.

Docker Containers

The Carbon platform is fully containerized for rapid on-prem or cloud deployment, easy management, and the most lightweight, efficient, and secure use of your hosting infrastructure.

LDAP Support

Add users directly to your Carbon applications or selectively import them from your corporate LDAP user repository. Enhance user profiles with new attributes outside of the LDAP schema.

Standards Based

Integrate and interoperate with industry tools from leading vendors. Carbon LDP is compliant with Semantic Web, Linked Data, HTTP, and other standards from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Carbon is the platform we've always wanted, so we're building it. We think you're going to love it too.
