Database Features

Feature-Rich Database to Integrate Data Better and Faster

NoSQL Speed and Scale. Relational Reliability. All in a Single Database Platform.

Ingest data into MarkLogic as is, without worrying about predefined schemas and complex ETL. MarkLogic’s flexible, multi-model approach lets you bring in data from anywhere—relational databases, mainframes, fileservers, Hadoop—or any other source. It’s that easy.

Acid Transactions

ACID Transactions

Don’t settle for a BASE-ic database. Use ACID transactions to ensure you don’t run the risk of encountering data corruption, stale reads, and inconsistent data.

Data Security

Advanced Security

Out-of-the-box we have enterprise-grade security, but some use cases require even more advanced security features for data sharing and further separation of duties using an external KMS, Redaction, and Compartment Security.

Easy To Get Data Out

Built-In Search

MarkLogic is a database with a search engine built-in to its core. With our “Ask Anything” Universal Index, data is indexed upon load so you can immediately begin asking questions across all your data. It’s fast, scalable, and important for data integration.

Smart Mastering

Smart Mastering

Master data quickly and automatically in a MarkLogic data hub, without buying a separate MDM tool. It leverages fuzzy logic and AI to match and merge data to build your 360 view in the context of all your data.



Get the combined benefits of a document store and an RDF Triple Store, where semantic data is stored. Semantics is ideal for storing relationships, which is useful for improving data integration, managing metadata, and building applications with highly connected data.

MarkLogic's and Apache NiFi's icons

Apache NiFi

Use point-and-click data flows to load data into MarkLogic. NiFi’s process automation and drag-and-drop interface help you load data from relational databases, Hadoop, and various other sources.

Tiered Storage

Tiered Storage

Store and manage data in different tiers based on cost and performance trade-offs. Easily moving data between tiers without any ETL or expensive infrastructure changes allows you to easily balance performance and capacity through the lifecycle of your data.

Card Xa Transactions

XA Transactions

Guarantee ACID properties for distributed transactions across clusters. Keep your data in sync by guaranteeing ACID transaction properties are maintained for distributed transactions between MarkLogic clusters or with another database system.

Flexible Deployment

Flexible Deployment

Build your app once and run it wherever you want. Starting on-premise and want to migrate to the cloud later? No problem. Need to change cloud vendors? No worries because MarkLogic is cloud neutral and there’s no cloud lock-in.

Card Containers


Deploy faster and more reliably by packaging applications in containers. This ensures that they will run as they’re moved from one environment to another while reducing costs.

Flexible Replication

Flexible Replication

Powerful and flexible information sharing to remote edge notes. It’s especially useful when dealing with security vulnerabilities or disconnected, intermittent, and latent networks.



Answer the “where” question in the context of all your other data. Natively store, manage, and search geospatial data—including points of interest, intersecting paths, and regions of interest—all inside MarkLogic. It’s designed for the most demanding geospatial applications.

High Availability And Disaster Recovery

High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Enterprise-class HA/DR so that you can have confidence that your data is always available and scheduled downtime is minimized – reducing risk and avoiding interruptions.


Scalability and Elasticity

MarkLogic can scale horizontally in clusters on commodity hardware to hundreds of nodes, petabytes of data, and billions of documents—and still processes tens of thousands of transactions per second. 

Card Increased Revenue

Data Analytics and Business Intelligence

Derive insights using traditional SQL, enterprise search, and semantics capabilities — all in one unified operational and analytical system. Modernize data analytics and business intelligence with MarkLogic whether you are building custom analytics or using standard BI tools.

MarkLogic In 4 Easy Steps

Flexible, Multi-Model Approach

Document Database – Native JSON and XML storage
RDF Triple Store – Graph capabilities with Semantics
Relational Data – Relational views of your data

That’s not all, MarkLogic also stores… Geospatial data (Store GML, KML, and GeoRSS. Integrate with ESRI ArcGIS and Google Maps), Large binaries (Store videos, PDFs, etc.)

This approach makes it possible to integrate data of any type:

  • Structured data, Unstructured data, Metadata, Regulated data, ERP Systems, Mainframe data, Geospatial Data, IoT, Clickstream, + more

And integrate data from any source:

  • Oracle, IBM DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, Teradata, Netsuite, MS Excel, NoSQL, Hadoop, File System, + more

MarkLogic is a database with the heart of a search engine. Using the “Ask Anything” Universal Index, data is indexed immediately when it is loaded so you can immediately begin asking questions of your data.

  • Index at ingest and query endlessly across all of your data
  • Scale to petabytes of data and billions of documents
  • Unlimited real-time alerts on new data at time of ingestion
  • Lightning fast, sub-second results

Use an iterative approach to transforming and enriching data. The MarkLogic approach is faster and easier than traditional ETL.

  • Only harmonize what you need
  • Preserve and query source content as is
  • Update the model later without re-ingesting
  • Preserve and query metadata
  • New schemas don’t break existing apps

Once the data is in a form you like, you can use it in transactional apps, operational apps, or send it to downstream systems using a variety of industry-standard APIs and query languages.

Query Interfaces and APIs – MarkLogic exposes data using a variety of industry-standard query interfaces and APIs that are familiar to developers. Developers don’t need to know everything about MarkLogic, they just need to know the API.

Query languages and APIs include: JavaScript, XQuery, SPARQL, SQL, REST API, Java API, Node.js API, Optic API

Types of applications and systems accessing data in MarkLogic include:

  • Transactional apps: data services, micro-services
  • Analytical apps: real-time trends, integration with BI tools such as Tableau
  • Semantic apps: Ontology managers, OWL reasoners
  • Downstream systems: Analytics in a data warehouse, Hadoop archives, etc.
Where Great Apps Begin – Whether you’re building a transactional or analytical app, MarkLogic is the place to start.
