“We have been talking since early in our history about the fact that NuoDB’s patented distributed architecture was specifically designed to support true global distribution of a database. Often the response from industry experts has been “that’s impossible,” stated Dr. Michael Waclawiczek, NuoDB Vice President of Marketing and Operations.
“Now that customers have begun deploying geo-distribution, we felt that as part of our Release 2.0 launch it was time to demonstrate and discuss how NuoDB enables global applications in a way no other vendor can.”
