MarkLogic Server for EC2 consists of an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) with MarkLogic Server pre-installed. For faster and easier deployment, users can subscribe to the MarkLogic Server AMI directly from Amazon Web Services. This service also allows users to manage costs more effectively because customers pay for only the resources they need.
MarkLogic Server is also now certified on two cloud infrastructures. The first is Amazon EC2, where customers can deploy MarkLogic Server on this low cost, highly flexible infrastructure offered by Amazon Web Services. The second is the VMware virtualization platform, which enables customers to implement clouds on self-managed hardware.
“The demand for our software is white-hot because organizations in a variety of different industries are realizing that unstructured information is an integral part of their business,” said Jason Monberg, vice president of product management, Mark Logic Corporation. “We see the emerging trend in cloud computing environments as a way to offer customers greater flexibility in developing and deploying the next-generation of information applications.”
