In 2008, Founders Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey single-handedly created the fastest and smoothest internet technology that would soon become a sought-after necessity for cloud applications. NuoDB (known as NimbusDB until 2011) is an elastic SQL database that can house cloud applications more efficiently than any other of its kind. As revealed by its patented description, it is “an elastically Scalable Database,” that is SQL and ACID compliant.
The NuoDB database has within its structure the ability to mesh perfectly with the cloud; whenever a new server comes onto the scene for the purpose of scaling out the database, the database actually runs faster without any sharding. It reroutes tasks to available processors to prevent bottle-necking, and utilizes peer-to-peer messaging to send tasks to nodes.
The most prominent thing about NuoDB that sets it apart from the usual, is its ability to expand itself with the addition of new servers, instead of merely replacing its hardware. As ingrained within its design, it takes IBM scientist Edgar Codd’s idea for an interactive database to a whole different level. It can run anywhere! It is flexible, scalable, always-available, smart and secure; it can efficiently process over one million transactions per second!
NuoDB has three versions available: free developer, paid professional, and paid enterprise. In 2014, it was recognized by both Mass High Tech and Boston Business Journal as one of their “stars” during the 2014 Innovation All Stars award event. NuoDB has truly changed the internet for the better, and our technological world will never be the same because of it!
