SAN CARLOS, Calif. — November 13, 2013 — MarkLogic Corporation, the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform company, today announced the immediate availability of MarkLogic 7 on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. Enterprises now have full access to the industry’s only schema-agnostic Enterprise NoSQL database that includes search and application services and is engineered to harness the benefits of AWS.
“Many organizations are frustrated by the tradeoffs they face when trying to choose a database for use in the cloud. They need full enterprise features including high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR), replication, and clustering,” said Joe Pasqua, senior vice president, product strategy, MarkLogic. “Enterprises also need their systems to interoperate seamlessly between the cloud and in their own data centers. Instead, they find either limited-functionality versions of enterprise products or newcomers that don’t provide essential features such as ACID transactions, security or HA/DR – features organizations will not compromise when adopting cloud into their enterprise IT. Customers can get started quickly with MarkLogic and with flexible and affordable pricing that has been unheard of in the industry.”
MarkLogic 7 on AWS is the same full featured, clustered and elastic product that customers can run on-premise and in cloud environments to run mission-critical applications. This allows companies to set up short-term cloud deployments or adopt a hybrid infrastructure that includes AWS. MarkLogic 7 can span both strategies, easily scaling up or down, without any downtime and with full transactional consistency to ease the migration of applications and workloads between the two infrastructures.
MarkLogic on AWS delivers key benefits for enterprise IT:
MarkLogic makes it easy for enterprises to fully realize the benefits of a cloud strategy and lets customers gain efficiencies from shared resources, offloading IT infrastructure management to AWS, or to have a secure location to backup and restore archival data. MarkLogic 7 also integrates tightly with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) as a storage tier for active and archival file systems or for backups. MarkLogic 7 is cloud ready and eases cloud deployments with guidelines, scripts and tools that help support managed clusters on AWS.
