History of NuoDB

NuoDB is an SQL oriented database used for cloud database computing. The software has added features of elasticity which improves reliability and faster data processing in cloud applications. This concept essentially entails that adding more servers to the database, it scales out, distributing the data to several processors, thereby making the cloud database faster. The system uses a three tiered structure, adds cloud distribution efficiency as it can run up to 1 million transactions per second.
Founded in 2008 by Barry Morris and Jim Starkey, the company has over the years gained popularity for its operational database management solutions. Originally, it was called NimbusDB before rebranding in 2011 to NuoDB. It was officially given a patent in July 2012 for its elastic, scalable cloud database technology, something that boosted investor confidence giving the company enough funds for expansion.
Cloud computing has revolutionalized the information technology world in a big way. NuoDB’s system has contributed immensely in enabling SQL based database can be expanded in the cloud without replacing hardware. This concept has even enabled scale out hosting from multiple hosts, something that is not easily done with cloud database computing.
