Qizx is a proprietary XML database that provides native storage for XML data.

Qizx was first developed by Xavier Franc of Axyana [1] and was purchased by Qualcomm in 2013. [2] Qizx was re-released by Qualcomm in late 2014 on Amazon Web Services . [3]

Packaging and Bindings

The Qizx database can be configured to run on an application, in a hosted client-server environment, or as a software service hosted on Amazon Web Services . The client-server supports database clustering for both load balancing and data redundancy . Qizx is bundled with a multi-platform GUI client and can also be accessed through a RESTful API that includes embedded online documentation.

Qizx includes bindings in Java , Python , C and C # as well as native XPath and XQuery support. Qizx also provides a number of extensions to the XQuery language for updating documents, accessing document metadata and various other tasks.
