Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey founded NuoDB in 2008. Based in Cambridge Massachusetts, NuoDB is an Operational Database Management System. NuoDB has the cutting edge technology to help any business expand their database smoothly and without malfunction.
The goal at NuoDB is to couple the newest database technology with cloud applications. NuoDB has the tech required to deliver a database that can adapt to any company’s requirements. As the clients demand access to cloud applications, NuoDB has the tech needed.
NuoDB is an SQL database designed for use with cloud applications. Because of its distributed object architecture it works seamlessly with cloud applications. When a database expands, NuoDB technology can easily scale-out the database. The system can add servers without sharding the data.
Unlike their competitors, NuoDB can add more servers instead of replacing hardware. The system follows Edgar F. Codd’s 12 rules for relational databases. The database is accessible from anywhere, it also has the elasticity required for seamless growth. The data is available non-stop.
NuoDB technology is available in several versions depending on needs. There is a free version, a professional version, and an enterprise edition. On January 31st in 2017 they expanded the community edition. This was to enable scale-out across multiple hosts.
