MarkLogic 8 is Easy to Deploy with Server-Side JavaScript Support and Free Cloud Deployment.

SAN CARLOS, CALIF. – February 9, 2015 – MarkLogic Corporation, the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform provider, today announced the general availability of MarkLogic software Version 8, the new-generation database that helps organizations achieve faster time to results, operationalize heterogeneous data, and mitigate risk. Organizations across all industries are eager to implement MarkLogic 8, as it is the only database platform that combines the agility of NoSQL with hardened enterprise features and advanced query, search, operational and transactional capabilities.

MarkLogic 8 not only supports server-side JavaScript and JSON, but also includes a robust set of enterprise features like semantics and bitemporal. MarkLogic Bitemporal allows businesses to minimize risk by looking at data as it was over the course of time. This is crucial for companies in strict regulatory environments, and also has broad applicability to any organization that needs to have a historical view of its data. These features are not found in any other NoSQL database.

MarkLogic is also making it easy for organizations to deploy their first MarkLogic-powered applications in the cloud with a limited offering of a free, one-year version of its Enterprise NoSQL database platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS)—at zero cost to new customers. Subject to the Terms and Conditions. Offer is limited to one per organization. Offer is not intended for individual use, and quantities are limited. Cloud hosting fees may apply.

MarkLogic Software Version 8

MarkLogic 8 is the new generation of database technology that helps organizations integrate, search, analyze and operationalize heterogeneous data quickly and affordably. MarkLogic 8 brings powerful new capabilities including:

  • Massive enhancements for developers: Speed development with full native support for JSON, a fast-growing data format. Run JavaScript code near the data for unparalleled power and efficiency. Continue with JavaScript into the middle tier with a new Node.js driver for MarkLogic, or take advantage of the powerful new capabilities in the Java client API.
  • Bitemporal: Reduce risk through “tech time travel”—timestamping and rewinding documents to identify changes, which is critical for regulated companies to maintain and demonstrate compliance.
  • Semantics: Find new facts and relationships automatically within billions of triples and documents using the new Inference capability and expanded SPARQL support.
  • Many more: Including a robust Management REST API, enhanced Flexible Replication, simpler out-of-the-box experience, and faster backup.

“MarkLogic 8 is the most powerful release we’ve ever shipped; it’s further proof that we continue to set the standard for heterogeneous data integration and management. Relational databases can’t keep up with the pace of change in data and business, and other NoSQL databases lack critical hardened enterprise features like high availability, security and disaster recovery,” said Joe Pasqua, executive vice president, products. “We’ve engineered enterprise functionality into the product from day one and are continually innovating to give customers the features they need to both analyze and operationalize their big data.”

Demand for MarkLogic technology has grown quickly and customers and partners are excited about MarkLogic 8.

Customer Excitement

“MarkLogic has been a strategic partner of American Psychological Association (APA) since 2006, helping us to drive revenue with improved data quality, time to market, performance and customer experience,” said Beverly Jamison, senior director, IT Architecture and Publishing Solutions, American Psychological Association. “Our testing has found that MarkLogic 8’s JavaScript and native JSON support will allow us to quickly create even more advanced applications that our members will embrace, and the enhanced semantics will add another layer of search- and presentation-intelligence that will help us maintain our competitive advantage. We are eager to upgrade to MarkLogic 8 as soon as possible.”

“Early testing has determined that MarkLogic 8 will be a game changer for us as well as the market as a whole. MarkLogic’s bitemporal offers the flexibility of correlating and delivering additional value of data (by providing intraday information, not just end of day information) to a diverse customer group—rapidly—that just hasn’t been fully realized before,” said Paolo Pelizzoli, Global Head of Architecture, Global Technology Operations, Broadridge. “In fact, MarkLogic’s bitemporal will provide an entirely new opportunity for our customers to perform additional analytics as well as enabling much richer capabilities in the area of compliance management. Other features of MarkLogic 8 that excite us include tiered storage, full semantic support and server-side JavaScript. These features will radically change the landscape of how applications are rolled out to our clients in a timely and cost-effective manner.”

Global Partner Excitement

“As the top system integrator in Japan, our customers rely on the world’s most powerful infrastructure to manage massive amounts of heterogeneous data, and after much research and analysis we’ve determined that MarkLogic is the optimal solution to address this issue,” said Shinichiro Miyake, Head of Financial Global IT Services Division, First Financial Sector, NTT Data Corporation. “We’ve been working with MarkLogic for the past few years, helping customers develop big data applications that help them make better business decisions. The new features of MarkLogic 8 will add additional value to our customers and revenue for us.”

“We help companies unlock their immense amounts of data and leverage that information in the content-driven applications we create for them. With its data integration and management expertise, MarkLogic 8 is the optimal solution to help our customers identify, discover and govern their data,” said Bart Omlo, CEO, HintTech. “Once our customers can corral their data through MarkLogic, we can then incorporate our expertise to help our clients worldwide to transform brands, enhance customer loyalty and improve processes.”
