MarkLogic® Announces MarkLogic® Enterprise NoSQL Database on Hadoop Distributed File System

MarkLogic Brings the Best of Both Worlds Together to Deliver the Industry's Most Capable Platform for Managing Big Data

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - Strata Conference + Hadoop World -- MarkLogic Corporation today announced the MarkLogic® enterprise NoSQL database running directly on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). With this latest innovation, Hadoop customers benefit from MarkLogic enterprise features -- such as ACID transactions, role-based security, full-text search, and the flexibility of a granular document data model for real-time applications -- while also leveraging their existing Hadoop infrastructure.

"With this innovation, MarkLogic is the only enterprise-class NoSQL database that gives you fast and secure access to specific pieces of data, not just large files, within your Hadoop infrastructure," said Gary Bloom, CEO of MarkLogic. "Bringing MarkLogic and Hadoop together, we manage the complexities of big data more effectively than anyone else."

Regulated industries, such as government and financial services, often have legal requirements that govern the amount of data an organization needs to keep and what it may need to report on. Additionally, a business may want to keep a long-tail of information for historical reporting and analytics. By combining Hadoop and MarkLogic, users are able to index the most critical and frequently accessed data on high-performance infrastructure and allocate the rest to a low-cost archive for intermittent access and historical analysis.

This is a critical step in realizing MarkLogic's vision of enabling a fluid mix of data between operational and analytic workloads. Segregating data across different storage and computation tiers lets users optimize cost, performance, availability, and flexibility. Users can store data, indexes, and journals across a mixture of local (RAM, HDD, and SSD), SAN, and HDFS-based storage. This provides secure, low-latency access to operational data, as well as economical storage and processing of the remaining long-tail.

A MarkLogic® Server technology preview, featuring Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) storage, is available from MarkLogic Developer Labs at MarkLogic expects the production release to be generally available early next year.
