If you’re running an operational and transactional system, then you need a database with all of the ACID properties (atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability). These properties ensure that your enterprise-grade system never encounters issues like data corruption, stale reads, and inconsistent data. When it comes to mission-critical applications, ACID properties are not a “nice-to-have,” they are an absolute requirement for transactional consistency.
ACID compliance is a standard in relational databases, but MarkLogic is unique among almost all NoSQL databases because we support transactions that are 100% ACID compliant, whereas others have relaxed or even non-existent standards. MarkLogic’s ACID properties also apply to multi-document, multi-statement, and XA transactions (transactions between clusters), providing the unique reliability to run large-scale, operational systems for mission-critical use cases.
ACID is an acronym representing four key properties that guarantee your database transactions are reliably processed.
