Update: Mark Logic and Medialab Solutions to Provide Scalable Search and Discovery Applications

SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - Mark Logic Corporation, provider of the industry's leading XML content platform, today announced a technology partnership with Medialab Solutions, creators of the AquaBrowser Library search and discovery platform.

MarkLogic Server is an XML content platform on which partners and customers build information access and delivery solutions used by publishers, government agencies, and other large enterprises to accelerate the creation of content applications.

AquaBrowser Library is the world leader in library search, providing a platform exclusively dedicated to providing visual faceted search solutions for libraries. The product seamlessly integrates with any major library system, opening up both the library catalog and any other information source.

Now customers can use AquaBrowser as an integrated search and discovery interface on top of MarkLogic, resulting in faster time to delivery of a custom built content application. By combining MarkLogic and AquaBrowser, customers that have or want to build a search and discovery application, or anyone who publishes large collections of scholarly work that needs to be searched, for example, medical databases and reference materials will now benefit from a more powerful search and retrieval experience.

"We're very happy to partner with Mark Logic to leverage their world class XML and XQuery-based content repository," said Taco Ekkel, director of sales at Medialab Solutions. "Customers can use MarkLogic and AquaBrowser to quickly search through huge content indexes from the intuitive AquaBrowser interface."
