With MarkLogic, build your application once and run it anywhere, whether on-premises, virtualized, or in the cloud. Your business should dictate where your data lives, not the limitations of your database.
With other databases, you must choose up front where to deploy, and you have little flexibility to change later. Most other databases are purpose-built for each particular environment—you run different versions of that vendor’s software depending on the environment. Another reason is simply a licensing model designed to favor vendors—if you migrate to the cloud, you must buy a new cloud-specific license.
MarkLogic takes a different approach: It’s the same product. You get one enterprise product that runs in the environment of your choice. If you start on-premises and migrate to the cloud later on, that is okay. And, MarkLogic has been successfully running in production cloud environments for almost a decade.
To support its growing user base and multi-platform distribution, the BBC built its iPlayer TV-streaming service using MarkLogic. After launching iPlayer, the system handed three billion requests within the first year of production, all on the cloud.
Deploy MarkLogic in the cloud via Amazon Web Services (AWS) and maintain all of the enterprise features of MarkLogic, including ACID transactions, HA/DR, certified security, and elasticity. For AWS, MarkLogic provides pre-packaged cloud formation templates and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for creating managed clusters on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). You can quickly add or remove hosts in a cluster, and can deploy across Amazon availability zones without any loss of data or downtime.
