No other ACID database has even close to the text handling capabilities that are built-in to MarkLogic. Many multi-model databases rely on Lucene to provide text indexing, which leads to unnecessary latency and complexity.
Pro Massively scalable
Configuring MarkLogic for scale out is simple with both APIs and UI based mechanisms to add and manage cluster nodes that auto-shard and redistribute themselves for maximum efficiency.
Pro XML powerhouse
Pro Uniquely offers full ACID transactions in a multi-model database
MarkLogic is the only Multi-model database in the world that is fully ACID and treats unstructured content as a first class citizen.
Con Enterprise focused
