Semantics offers a new way of representing data, as subject-predicate-object triples
Bitemporal tracks database documents along two time axes simultaneously. It tells you both what you knew and when you knew it. You can use it to create a historical record in the case of an audit or to perform analytics after the fact.
Wildcards are special characters that enable you to efficiently search on similarly spelled words. MarkLogic supports wildcard search with special indexes, including lexicons.
Rebalancing in MarkLogic redistributes content in a database so that the forests that make up the database each have a similar number of documents. Spreading documents evenly across forests lets you take better advantage of concurrency among hosts.
A key feature of MarkLogic is ACID compliance. ACID stands for atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability, and meeting these four requirements means that transactions in MarkLogic are reliable.
