The Azure MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL database platform provides the flexibility to build a single, actionable 360-degree view of data in the cloud, whether entirely on Azure or in a hybrid cloud environment. The MarkLogic platform on Azure makes it easy to scale apps and projects up or down without downtime and with optimal deployment and transactional consistency, giving organizations maximum operational efficiency. Along with being fully supported on the Azure platform, many MarkLogic features are designed for more efficient deployment and management on cloud platforms. MarkLogic consists of security features such as Encryption, Redaction, and Element-Level Security, to securely host your data on public cloud environments. You can deploy virtual machines (VMs) from the published MarkLogic Azure image in the Azure environment. You can then add the storage, networking, and security features you require. You can use Solution Template to set up the IT environment via infrastructure as a code concept.
