MarkLogic Pricing

Pricing and Licensing

Simple and Flexible

Our licensing model provides meaningful options that allow you to grow or shrink your cluster as your business adapts to changing needs. We offer a free Developer license to get going quickly, and we have one premium license: Essential Enterprise.

Straightforward Pricing Metrics

MarkLogic’s pricing is transparent and stable over time. There are no arbitrary fences, maximum cluster sizes, or features restricted to certain customers.

Run It Wherever You Want

MarkLogic offers industry-first flexibility and portability. Use your license in any environment, and if you later need to move from on-premises to the cloud and use the same license, that is okay.

Platform Pricing

MarkLogic provides a document database, triple store, and search engine—all in a single unified platform designed to integrate data and run modern applications at scale.
