NuoDB SQL is an elastic database created for container-based environments and cloud applications. NuoDB assists in adjusting cloud database performance and also the size depending on the demand without risking transactional consistency, standard-based SQL or the integrity of the data. NuoDB Database Company, situated in Massachusetts, Cambridge, was established in 2008 as NimbusDBand changed to NuoDB in 2011. The co-founders of the company are Jim Starkey and Barry S. Morris.
Its elastic Database, SQL, was patented in March 2011 and approved in July 2012. The Database can handleboth read and write options for active to active deployment, across hybrid or multi-cloud database environments up to three data centers. Cloud database has improved in its transactional consistency with the elastic SQL on board.
Other than transactional consistency, NuoDB has other advantages such as flexibility, scalability, data durability and continuous availability. NuoDB database uses a tiered operating way whereby multiple tiers of transaction engines (TE) and storage managers (SM) are running on the same platform making customer performance efficient.
TEs contain nodes that can be adjusted according to the transaction volume. Unlike traditional cloud database, with the SQL based database, you do not have to replace the hardware because it can expand its databases by adding the servers. NuoDB has been appreciated and is used in companies like Alfa Systems, Kodiak, UAE Exchange and Dassault Systemes.
