NuoDB: The New Alternative to Alternative to Conventional RDBMSs

With the recent upsurge in data volume, almost every business is looking for the best way to scale up their databases. However, scaling up the traditional relational database management systems (or RDBMS) have proven to be quite expensive. Consequently, many businesses have been forced to seek for affordable scale-out databases solutions, one of them being the NuoDB databases.

NuoDB database is a NewSQL-oriented DBMS (database management system) that is specifically designed to switch between the cloud database and on-premise deployments. Just like in relational databases, application programs interact and communicate with NuoDB via SQL statements. However, NuoDB architecture diverges from relational approaches by utilizing three-tier structure, which includes administrative, storage, and transactional tiers. The tier approach implies that the NuoDB can function without coupling applications with data on a disk drive—this is not possible in some cloud applications.

Ecommerce companies and software vendors favor NuoDB due to its scale-out simplicity, continuous availability, elasticity, transactional consistency, and durability. So if you are trying to get your business or app off the ground, NuoDB is the perfect database to consider. It will not only allow you to easily route tasks nodes via its peer-to-peer messaging but it will also give you an opportunity to seamlessly switch your databases between on-premise databases and the cloud databases.
