Altogether, MarkLogic has raised $71.2 million in venture capital.
Developers of NoSQL (for "not only SQL") database software say their technologies provide better scalability and ability to handle unstructured data than traditional relational database products from major vendors such as Oracle. San Carlos, Calif.-based MarkLogic has been among the more visible NoSQL database vendors.
