    • Unlock Content™ Quick Thoughts on Oracle’s Hatchet Job Dave Kellogg Chief Executive Officer Mark Logic Corporation 12/17/09 Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation. All rights reserved. Slide 1
    • Preface This is not our technical response to Oracle’s attack white paper This is a business response I threw together pretty quickly (Hey, we don’t have 50K employees) We will be publishing a response white paper in the next few weeks We will be holding a webinar in a similar timeframe This is a “quick thoughts” document Maybe this is why they’re grumpy Why we think MarkLogic Server beats Oracle One slide on the white paper itself A chart that shows relative product positioning Maybe thinking like this is why they’re nervous Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation Confidential and Proprietary, Internal Use Only Slide 2
    • Awakening The Giant Note: using generic Federal agency logo to represent 5 different defense/intelligence agencies Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation Confidential and Proprietary, Internal Use Only Slide 3
    • Why Mark Logic Beats Oracle Performance: 10 to 1000x Scalability 100s of TB today; 100s of PB tomorrow Shared-nothing cluster architecture Cost effectiveness Hardware: commodity servers and storage Software: search engine, DBMS, and app server replacement Flexibility: no predefinition of either structure or queries Agility: turn applications in weeks to months Mark Logic is the right choice for the next generation of information applications Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation Confidential and Proprietary, Internal Use Only Slide 4
    • Oracle White Paper High-Level Response As remarkable for what it didn’t say as what it did Didn’t say: faster, better, more scalable Largely empty rhetoric and obvious fact Oracle’s big and Mark Logic is venture backed, duh (Backed, btw, by the same firm who backed Oracle) Technical arguments relate to early XQuery implementation Not waiting until 2007 = 4 more years experience and maturity Language differences are trivial Grand total of 7 XQuery extensions in MLS 4.1 4 of which are coming in next revision of the standard Oracle has a huge “glass houses” problem MarkLogic Server 4.1 is 99.9% compliant with XQuery 1.0 Oracle does not even publish results http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/XQTSReportSimple.html Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation Confidential and Proprietary, Internal Use Only Slide 5

    • Maybe Thinking Like This is Why They’re Worried “This notion of thinking about data in a structured, relational database is dead.” Vivek Kundra, Federal CIO July 21, 2009 Open Government and Innovations Conference Copyright © 2009 Mark Logic Corporation Confidential and Proprietary, Internal Use Only Slide 7
