SAN CARLOS, Calif. – March 5, 2008 – MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of infrastructure software for information applications, today announced a technology partnership with Medialab Solutions, creators of the AquaBrowser Library search and discovery platform.
MarkLogic Server is an XML content platform on which partners and customers build information access and delivery solutions used by publishers, government agencies, and other large enterprises to accelerate the creation of content applications.
