This is very difficult. If we can do this in MarkLogic, we can do anything in MarkLogic.”

LLNL was faced with numerous data silos filled with vast amounts of structured and unstructured data. Additionally, tests conducted for nuclear safety produce even more data—and none of this data was linked. LLNL is using MarkLogic to improve the organization’s data management strategy to more effectively maintain nuclear safety.

  • Improved discoverability
  • Achieved easier data integration
  • Established data governance
  • Increased efficiencies

Why MarkLogic?

LLNL attempted to resolve its challenges with a document management system, fileshare technology and a relational database, but determined MarkLogic was best suited for the organization’s data management strategy. With MarkLogic, LLNL can manage large, unpredictable, non-heterogenous data sets with optimal functionality. “MarkLogic has the ability to handle high variability, whether you want to store structured data that is indexed or have the metadata and the multi-terabyte file on Tier 2 storage. It’s also flexible with its built-in search and retrieval functionality,” said Valerie Noble.

Improved Discoverability

Prior to MarkLogic, LLNL experienced severe difficulty in discoverying data 6-12 months after it had been created.

Established Traceability

With the new platform, LLNL can track data from design to production for the lifetime of the system.

Achieved Flexibility & Extensibility

According to the organization, MarkLogic stores relationships with far more extensibility and flexibility than a relational solution.
