MarkLogic is an enterprise NoSQL database. It is document-oriented and can store, manage, and search JSON, XML, plain text, and binary data. MarkLogic is scalable and elastic, has enterprise security and ACID transactions. It also has a REST API and Node.js and Java Client APIs. It enables the storing, managing, and searching of structured and unstructured data, as well as the data resiliency and consistency features of relational databases. MarkLogic also provides enterprise features as government-grade security and high availability in addition to support for bitemporal data management, geospatial capabilities, tiered storage, and cloud support.
With its new version MarkLogic 9, a new feature called Entity Services was added that lets developers use a semantic model to define data concepts and their relationships system wide. The company also made some significant enhancements to security, starting with moving encryption into the core of the database
The workload is divided into two distinct parts:(i) Ingestion phase where a large data set is inserted with indexes into the MarkLogic database. (ii) Query phase where searches, views updates, and deletes are applied to the inserted data set. These queries also use MarkLogic features such as facets, pagination and bookmarks. [2]
MarkLogic is headquartered in Silicon Valley with field offices in Washington D.C., New York, Austin, London, Frankfurt, Utrecht, and Tokyo.
