Marklogic: Indexes

From Glitchdata
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Everything in MarkLogic is stored as compressed binary trees – NOT as raw documents – not even simply as gzipped documents – so MarkLogic saves disc space over alternatives. MarkLogic storing documents with an average (say 5-15) range indexes will effectively use the same amount of disc space – for data plus indexes – as the raw document. This is part of our secret sauce, and the algorithms are patented.
