The NuoDB database can easily be comprehended as a management system that functions in the cloud and is characterized for distributing deployment within the cloud as well. NuoDB is employed in SQL transactions.
NuoDB can be classified within the category of NewSQL databases featuring SQL characteristics as well as performing scale-out processing within cloud environments. ACID compliance is employed by NuoDB in order to guarantee the consistency of transactions while application programs access SQL statements in communicating with NuoDB.
NuoDB uses triple-tier structuring with the SQL database, specifically with administrative, transactional as well as storage tiers. NuoDB processes data in every SQL database by dividing the information into “atoms” (software object). NuoDB offers a “durable distributed cache” within an SQL database while using a set of in-memory caches with the objective of supporting elasticity within the cloud while ensuring that data objects are correctly and safely stored as well as not being lost. NuoDB provides solutions to access conflicts as well as other issues in a multi-version concurrency control (MVCC) environment. NuoDB employs peer-to-peer communication which is not required to occur simultaneously.
Ever since January of 2013, NuoDB 1.0 has been available to the public. NuoDB Inc. develops and commercializes NuoDB software. Jim Starkley was the first lead architect for NuoDB but he retired in 2012. Starkley currently provides strategic advice to NuoDB Inc.
