MarkLogic is a modern, powerful, scalable big data engine. It is built for speed and size. It is unique in the industry.
Epinomy is a native MarkLogic application. It is written entirely in XQuery and JQuery. There is no need for outboard services, and it takes advantage of the power of the platform. Installation and deployment is a breeze.
Already have your own library of documents? Epinomy can tag those, too. Just point Epinomy at your library and auto-tag the heck out of it.
All of the tools that MarkLogic brings to the table are also available in open source version. But MarkLogic is the only product, commercial or open, that provides all of the necessary features under one single, unified, high performance engine. No other database, search engine, triple store or application server is a match for the power of MarkLogic server. That's why we have partnered with MarkLogic to bring Epinomy to market exclusively on their platform.
Not only is MarkLogic Server a powerful Big Data noSQL ACID compliant database - but it has a fantastic search engine built in. Other systems use Lucene as their search engine, which is okay, I guess - but it is not nearly as well integrated and powerful as the search engine built-in to MarkLogic.
Can you tell we're fans?

The "Alerting" function in MarkLogic facilitates our "AutoTagging" function. This allows us to tag documents from literally thousands of terms very quickly, using native MarkLogic code. They really did save us a lot of work here. We had to write our own on other platforms.
The Taxonomy Editor contains a document manager that you can use to autotag documents on-the-fly in near real time. The unique performance characteristics of MarkLogic make it possible to do things that other platforms can only dream about.
MarkLogic has a fully functional application server. It is orthogonal as heck and uses XQuery as its programming language. Frankly, XQuery is a language that takes a while to love. There aren't a lot of people who know it, and it it is really much more computer-science-y than, say Java. But golly is it powerful. Once our guys learned how to use it, we can crank out code like nobody's business. And it is robust and XML-centric and feeds our geek hunger to no end.
New in MarkLogic 7 are semantic technologies that add a fourth leg to the table. With first-class treatment of RDF-style triples, MarkLogic brings the ability to model and retrieve object graphs to the forefront of database technologies. No longer relegated to the ivory tower, the powerful support for semantic relationships and the ability to store arbitrary links among data elements is unique and unprecedented. Epinomy is one of the first applications to take full advantage of this groundbreaking technology.
