Who We Are

Why NuoDB

NuoDB, the NewSQL leader, was first envisioned by industry-renowned database architect and innovator Jim Starkey in 2008. In 2010 he was joined by enterprise software CEO Barry Morris to launch a company that has re-defined relational database technology to tackle today’s market needs.

Fundamental to our founders’ vision was the idea of developing a database system that builds on the power of SQL to move relational technology beyond traditional monolithic databases. That old approach was designed 30 years ago and no longer serves a market that is embracing commodity datacenters and cloud computing. The result is a distributed DBMS that delivers innovations in scale-out performance, continuous availability, dynamic multi-tenancy, and active-active geo-distribution anywhere!
