With MarkLogic, build your application once and run it anywhere, whether on-premises, virtualized, or in the cloud. With other databases, you must choose up front where to deploy, and you have little flexibility to change later. Most other databases are purpose-built for each particular environment—you run different versions of that vendor’s software depending on the environment.
Another reason is simply a licensing model designed to favor vendors—if you migrate to the cloud, you must buy a new cloud-specific license. MarkLogic takes a different approach: it’s the same product. You get one enterprise product that runs in the environment of your choice. If you start on-premises and migrate to the cloud later on, that is okay. And, MarkLogic has been successfully running in production cloud environments for almost a decade.
