Nuonians gathered last Thursday for our annual holiday party. It was the 21st century version of the time-honored seasonal bash – none of those infamous activities in the back office for us! – complete with thoughtful conversation, a mellow Brazilian jazz quartet, delicious cuisine and drink. We all left a little heavier and a lot happier.
However the most striking aspect of the event was its size. With NuoDB continuing to grow by leaps and bounds, our party has grown as well - more than double the size of last year's! While doing so, we also proved out the old adage: the more, the merrier.
The database market is hot. CIOs, CTOs and Chief Architects are actively (and passionately) scouting out new solutions that scale elastically; that work with the cloud not to spite it; and can future-proof their business apps for decades to come. No more sharding, no more throwing costly hardware at the peak load problem; no more vendor lock-in. IT leaders and business strategists are moving on. We are continuing to add the best of the best technical talent to stay ahead of these new expectations.
2014 was a very good year. 2015 promises to be even better.
We believe 2015 will see an uptick in high-performance operational systems. We will see apps scale out in a big and global way - from online games to retail to strategic enterprise software apps.
We can’t wait.
