ESS provides/hosts Solid Pods. Pods are data storage locations.

Resource Types#

ESS Pods supports storing different types of resources.

Resource Description Framework (RDF) Resource#

A Resource Description Framework (RDF) resource is a file whose contents consists of statements (also known as triples) that describe some “subject” by its relationships:

<subject> <predicate> <object>

The predicate describes the relationship between the subject and the object.

For more information, see RDF Data Model.


A Container is an RDF resource that can contain other Containers as well as RDF and non-RDF resources. It is analogous to a folder in a file system.


Container URLs always end with a slash /.

Non-RDF Resource#

A non-RDF Resource is any non-RDF binary or text file, such as .pdf , .jpeg, etc.
