The MarkLogic Data Hub is a highly differentiated data platform that eliminates friction at every step of the data integration process. Built on MarkLogic Server, a multi-model database, our Data Hub Platform breaks down data silos by ingesting data as is from any source, indexing it immediately for query and search, and providing the ability to run operational and analytical applications at scale. This ensures a consistent, real-time view of enterprise data – all in one unified platform that runs in any environment, including as a cloud service with MarkLogic Data Hub Service.
By simplifying data integration, MarkLogic helps organizations gain agility, lower IT costs, and safely share their data.
MarkLogic corporation was founded in 2001 with the vision to create a database that was searchable so that organizations could integrate, store, manage, and search their own data in the same way that you search Google.
The founder of MarkLogic is Christopher Lindblad, the Chief Architect of the Ultraseek search engine, which he launched alongside other search pioneers. Chris’ initial patents for MarkLogic focused on storing and searching unstructured XML data, and later patents spanned into multi-model capabilities.
MarkLogic quickly gained prominence as large enterprises faced the challenges of integrating large volumes and varieties data. But, those large enterprises also needed enterprise features. For that reason, MarkLogic’s early product releases were designed with features such as ACID transactions and granular security.
In 2012, Gary Bloom joined MarkLogic as the CEO. Gary was an early employee at Oracle, and led Oracle’s database division through their most significant period of growth in the early 1990’s. Other executives joined MarkLogic to help with product development, bringing experience from Microsoft, Symantec, and other successful enterprise tech companies.
Today, MarkLogic has an impressive list of over 2,500 customers spanning the globe and a dozen offices in the U.S. Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
As the company has grown, one thing never changed—the vision is still to enable organizations to get more value from their data faster. By executing on this vision, the company has established itself as the best data platform for simplifying data integration and the leader of the Data Hub space.
Embedded Machine learning takes center stage with MarkLogic 10, putting it at the core of the database to make key functions smarter and more automatic.
Data Hub Service launches as MarkLogic’s first cloud service, giving customers a fully managed MarkLogic Data Hub with on-demand capacity and auto-scaling.
MarkLogic 9 debuts with advanced security features, further establishing MarkLogic as the most secure NoSQL database in the market. MarkLogic University users consume over 14,000 On-Demand video tutorials, and attend almost 7,000 training days. Soon, we’ll rival SNL for content binging!
The first release of MarkLogic Data Hub goes live, a software interface that runs on top of MarkLogic Server and includes a set of tools and libraries to ingest data from multiple sources, harmonize that data, master it, and then search and analyze it.
The release of MarkLogic 7 adds semantic capabilities – i.e. the ability to store graph data as RDF Triples – helping define the meaning of relationships in the data (but sadly, not between you and your significant other).
MarkLogic welcomes CEO Gary Bloom, opens its first Asia-Pacific office in Tokyo, and goes live with BBC Sport for the 2012 Summer Olympics. We give ourselves a Perfect 10.
MarkLogic 4 reaches two significant milestones: becoming Common Criteria Certified (an international standard for computer security), and our first cloud customer goes live on AWS. Our head has always been in the clouds.
We establish our first European office in the heart of London and move our Headquarters to its current location in San Carlos, CA – along the 101 corridor through the heart of the Silicon Valley.
MarkLogic is granted the initial patents for essential components of our database. Way back when, we knew where the future of data was headed.
Cerisent officially becomes known as MarkLogic, releases Version 1 of the first NoSQL database, and wins its first customer, Elsevier. We were busy bees.
Christopher Lindblad founds company as Cerisent. Also on this date in 1969, another significant takeoff took place: NASA launched Apollo 10. Coincidence? We think not.
