A Brief and Illuminating Intro to NuoDB
NuoDB is a database technology company created in 2008 by InterBase digital architect and programmer, Jim Starkey (now the presiding Chief Executive Officer) and South African software designer, Barry S. Morris. The NuoDB database architecture is a direct predecessor to the Nimbus DB, over which numerous improvements in efficient and availability where made. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the United States of America and has been featured in such well known online magazines as the popular tech and news website, CIO as well as SQL database Authority.
The company is most well known for its unique and extremely versatile database – which is sometimes referred to colloquially the new SQL (structured query language) – as one might have guessed from the name of the company itself. The system uses object oriented programming that places remote objects as local objects for information and data sharing purposes.
NuoDB utilizes a stretchable or elasticable information database which is geared towards cloud software apps. The cloud database is unique because of its highly scalable nature wherein, the more databases to which the system is connected the faster it runs. Effectively what this means is that the more the database is scaled out the faster and more efficiently it will operate which is exceedingly good for businesses.
