To ensure that organizations are able to securely make use of their growing volumes of data MarkLogic Corporation today announced that it will deliver an enterprise-grade application and analytics software solution to unlock the power of Big Data based on the Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop software (Intel® Distribution). The Intel Distribution will work seamlessly with the MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL (not only SQL) database to enable real-time transactional and analytic applications.

Tony Agresta's curator insight, May 16, 2013 11:43 AM

With this announcement, Enterprise Hadoop meets Enterprise NoSQL including certification and testing of a known configuration, integrated support, enterprise management tools and performance & security enhancements.  To be specific, Apache Hadoop can take full advantage of the advanced processor capabilities such as AES-NI and SSE.   Energy efficient servers for scale-out architectures are enabled with Xeon E5.   Faster data ingest, export, perfromance and reliability support SSD big data usage models.    Most importantly, enterprise hadoop complements Marklogic in areas such as operational applications, real time decision making, distributed indexes and enterprise search.

Hadoop is not enough for 'big data', says Facebook analytics chief

Hadoop is not enough for 'big data', says Facebook analytics chief | Real World NoSQL | Scoop.it
The Hadoop programming framework may be synonymous with the "big data" movement but it's not the only tool companies need to derive insights from massive stores of unstructured information, according to Facebook analytics chief Ken Rudin.
Adam Fowler's insight:

Good article here. I like this quote: "The problem is that Hadoop is a technology, and big data isn't about technology. Big data is about business needs."


He basically says what you need is an operational data store on top of your data. I advise MarkLogic on local, shared or HDFS storage. 8o)

If I haven't heard of it it's probably NoSQL! | Bloor

It's all too easy to think that all noSQL vendors fall into the same camp. MarkLogic is a notable exception.

Via Dominic Spitz
Adam Fowler's insight:

Great piece of research that makes the point that not all NoSQL databases are equal. Quite the opposite infact.

Dominic Spitz's curator insight, February 14, 2013 1:49 AM

There are a huge and ridiculous number of NoSQL databases on the market and the truth is that there is not enough market out there to sustain them all. This means that a bunch of them will eventually go belly up. This is especially true bearing in mind that many of these companies are open source and have miniscule numbers of paying customers. Of course, this is the gamble that the VCs take but I think there are likely to be a lot more losers than winners. On the other hand the winners may win big.

 

But there's another consequence of this plethora of suppliers that most of us have never heard of. The thought process goes something like this: "I've never heard of you … oh, you're a NoSQL vendor … in that case I'll wish you the best of British … goodbye". Only, that approach can be a mistake: because there are NoSQL companies that you may not have heard of that actually do have a sound business model and a decent customer base. Of course, they are the exception to the rule but they do exist.

 

I was reminded of this today when I got a press release from MarkLogic (they've introduced a free developer license for their Enterprise Edition and also announced a Mongo2MarkLogic converter). I meant to write about them last year but, what with one thing and another, didn't get around to it. So, what makes MarkLogic different from your ordinary, average run-of-the-mill NoSQL vendor?

 

Well, first, they were around before the whole trend for NoSQL became fashionable - the company was founded in 2001. Second, they have never been an open source vendor. Third, they have over 350 real, live, actual paying enterprise customers (many of them major companies) and, perhaps most importantly, the product is ACID compliant. That seems like a contradiction in terms doesn't it? NoSQL and ACID compliant!

 

As might be suggested by the Mongo converter that the company has just introduced, MarkLogic is especially focused on unstructured data. Thus, for example, the BBC built its web site for the London Olympics last year based on MarkLogic. Warner Brothers uses the product as catalogue storage for the trailers it makes for its various movies. In both case the product's integrated search engine is the icing on top of the database. Actually, it's a federated search engine and it has more conventional uses as well: for instance, one global investment bank is using it to establish its risk position across geographies.

 

The underlying architecture of MarkLogic is XML-based but the company has the product running on top of HDFS in its labs though this is not generally available as yet. It is possible to archive data to HDFS environments and MarkLogic has policy definition capabilities provided for ILM (information lifecycle management) purposes. You can still search across the archived HDFS environment using the MarkLogic search engine. As one might expect from an XML-based technology, access may be made via XQuery but there is also support for JSON and SQL access as well as a REST API.

 

So: not all NoSQL products and vendors are by any means equal. Indeed, MarkLogic tends to compete with relational databases and technology rather than other NoSQL suppliers. And that, perhaps, proves the point that it is dangerous to tar all NoSQL vendors with the same brush. Because MarkLogic is clearly an exception.

Although Hadoop shows great promise for managing Big Data, many organizations are still struggling to decide which parts of the Hadoop ecosystem to adopt in order to obtain/elicit the greatest value. A key concern is how to avoid performance and data security issues so that your agency/organization isn’t spending valuable time and resources on what ultimately turns out to be little more than a development “science project.”

Join Chris Biow, CTO of MarkLogic, and Vin Sharma, Director of Product Marketing for Intel, to learn how your agency can achieve real-time analysis, transactional data updates and integrity, granular security, and full-text search for new, immediate organization insights – all while lowering costs. 

Specific customer case studies will be presented on how to improve Hadoop capabilities in real-time, ACID Transactions, and Enterprise Grade Security.

Attendees of this webcast will learn practical tips, including risk management strategies, for:
• Securely and cost-effectively managing, analyzing, and using huge data sets
• Rapidly developing real-time transactional and analytic applications
• Transactional data updates and integrity
• Optimizing cost, performance, availability, and flexibility
• Getting the most out of your data

This is a great response from Adam (from MarkLogic) about this relatively typical Big Data Architecture.

The issue with the initial diagram is obvious at the outset - it is complex.

Way too complex.

Adam's blog explains why MarkLogic has evolved as it has, in an Enterprise customer base, to remove areas of duplication and take onboard functions such as Search rather than integrating this capability from an external system.

By removing ETL and possibly data mining, the diagram starts to look much more simple.

The diagram hence becomes more of a functional description but using MArkLogic, the system diagram becomes much more simple.
