on 2013/10/10 8:43:04 (593 reads)

MarkLogic Corporation today announced the latest version of its Enterprise NoSQL database platform, MarkLogic 7. To help organizations gain better operational agility and optimize storage costs, MarkLogic 7 supports cloud computing, can run natively on the Hadoop* Distributed File System (HDFS), and has new features that enable database elasticity and searchable tiered storage. Additionally, to help users understand and gain more meaning from their data, MarkLogic 7 introduces MarkLogic® Semantics. MarkLogic Semantics combines the power of documents, data and RDF triples (also known as Linked Data) to enable analysts to understand, discover and make better informed decisions, and to power the delivery of the most comprehensive, contextually relevant information to users.

"Pressed to rapidly create new information products -- while containing costs and dealing with expanding data volumes -- architecture teams have struggled with rigid infrastructures and traditional relational databases that either stymy development or that cannot expand and contract with changing user needs," explained Gary Bloom, CEO and president, MarkLogic. "MarkLogic already delivers all the features required for enterprise deployment of NoSQL database technology. With MarkLogic 7, customers will have greater power and agility to do more with data and content at a faster pace, while also making the best use of the new generation of cloud infrastructure. All are critical to our customers who are building mission-critical applications."

Gain Operational Agility and Adhere to Operational Standards for Data Governance, Security and Availability

Reduce storage costs using MarkLogic 7 while maintaining the sub-second performance users have come to expect. MarkLogic automates the process of segregating data into different storage tiers allowing for the cost of storage to reflect the value, relevancy and timeliness of the data, whether it is for real-time operational applications, archiving, batch applications, or batch analytics. The data remains readily available with sub-second query performance, so it can still adhere to governance, compliance and security policies over the entire lifetime of the data, even while leveraging cost-effective public or private cloud platforms.

MarkLogic 7 complements, leverages, and enhances investments in Hadoop while providing secure, real-time, transactional applications and analytics to users. In addition to local disk, SAN, NAS and other traditional file systems, MarkLogic can run directly on top of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) for either operational or archived data. This eliminates the need for costly and time-intensive extract, transform and load (ETL) process each time data needs to be used, and allows the cost of indexing to be amortized over the life of the data.

Dynamically scalable data layers become practical with MarkLogic 7, enabling the right resources to be brought to bear even during peak times. A combination of advanced performance monitoring, programmatic control of cluster size, sophisticated data rebalancing and granular control of resources bring agility and elasticity to the data layer whether it is on-premise or in the cloud. MarkLogic can also leverage Amazon S3 either as a native storage tier or for cloud backup from an on-premise deployment, enabling hybrid on-premise/cloud architectures. All of this is possible because MarkLogic supports ACID transactions, which are table-stakes for any database that will be used for mission-critical applications.
