MarkLogic has selected Vantage Data Centers for high-density wholesale data center space in Santa Clara, California. MarkLogic is an enterprise NoSQL database platform company that sells to large enterprises. Terms of the lease were not disclosed, but it is a wholesale deal with room for MarkLogic to expand further in the data center as the company grows. The company is currently undergoing the migration to Vantage.
MarkLogic offers a schema-agnostic Enterprise NoSQL database coupled with powerful search and flexible application services. It sees its chief competition as Oracle.
“MarkLogic’s data center needs are entirely to support our engineering process,” said Jeff Thomas, senior director of IT and facilities at MarkLogic. “Every year we turn out a major release of our product."
Thomas said that the company had outgrown its previous retail-colocation data center after using it for eight years.
MarkLogic is a prime example of a retail colocation customer “graduating” to wholesale. Vantage continues to go after these types of customers looking to make the switch. Moving from retail to wholesale angle is something it has previously pitched.
“We chose Vantage to ensure our infrastructure could quickly adapt to meet the rapidly changing needs of our business,” said Thomas. “Vantage runs a highly efficient facility and has a strong reputation for excellent customer service. Most importantly, we now have the ability to scale quickly within a single data center footprint at Vantage.”
Vantage’s campuses in Silicon Valley, California, and Quincy, Washington, include four enterprise-grade data centers totaling over 100MW of potential capacity.
