Base22® announces the public beta launch of its flagship software product, Carbon LDP. Carbon LDP is one of the first commercial implementations of the Linked Data Platform specification, a new kind of Semantic Web system endorsed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

"We are thrilled to be introducing our platform at this time," said Cody Burleson, Base22's Director of Product Innovations. "Right now, corporate enterprises are barraged with game-changing paradigms like cloud, micro-services, big data, SaaS, IoT, and cognitive computing. There's never been a bigger need for tools that can help developers work faster, integrate more effectively, and make data smarter. The semantic underpinnings of Carbon LDP were designed to address the challenges presented by these new paradigms and that means that Carbon LDP is well positioned to be a killer-app for the web that's now emerging."

Carbon LDP is a platform that allows web developers to build secure, data-centric web apps using client-side code like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Similar to other NoSQL document-oriented databases that have gained popularity in recent years, Carbon LDP allows developers to work with data as documents, reading and writing them like web pages using RESTful HTTP requests.

"For those who need it," Burleson said, "We'll offer professional support and consulting services. Others can still get help on our GitHub support repository page and in our Gitter chat rooms. The beta release of Carbon LDP is designed to gain early feedback. Moving forward, we're looking to build an ecosystem across the developer and business partner community."

Carbon LDP is comprised of two main components which run on Docker containers and can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud. The Carbon Platform provides an authentication server, a database, and a security manager for role-based access control. The Carbon Workbench provides a graphical user interface for interacting with the platform and with application data. The company also provides a JavaScript SDK, a helper library for Angular 2 apps, and boilerplate apps to help jump-start developers. Though not open-source, the software's license grants perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, and royalty-free use. The company has no plans to change the licensing for the Platform or the Workbench.
