To ensure redundancy and disaster recovery, traditional relational databases require (at least) twice the hardware, twice the effort, twice the licensing costs, and a boatload of complexity. NoSQL offerings can keep your application available - but at the expense of transactional integrity, data durability, and standards-based SQL data access.
NuoDB’s distributed database was architected for resilience - from hardware failure to data center failure - and automates redundancy . You can rely on NuoDB to keep your application up, running, and available to your customers whether you want resilience and automated redundancy in a single data center, an active-passive architecture for disaster recovery, or even an active-active database across multiple availability zones.
“NuoDB’s automation, resiliency, and disaster recovery features combined with its advanced distributed architecture means that it can easily be configured to deliver continuous availability.”
– Robin Bloor, Chief Analyst,
“NuoDB’s ACID-compliance and support of ANSI SQL played a crucial role in the adoption of NuoDB for our new product offering where continuous availability and the ability to scale out without any disruptions spells its success.”
NuoDB’s peer-to-peer architecture consists of peer processes that are independent and able to perform the same tasks. Because of this equality, any peer can fail or be shut down at any point without losing the database as a whole. There is no master, coordinator, or other single point for failure.
This simple model is the foundation for availability and resiliency in the NuoDB architecture.
Watch how NuoDB can be configured to run as a resilient database across multiple hosts, supporting high availability and redundancy, rolling upgrades, and online schema evolution and backup.
with built-in redundancy
Instead of requiring extra hardware and software that lie dormant until disaster strikes, NuoDB maximizes your hardware utilization, automates redundancy, and reduces disaster recovery overhead. That means your organization saves money while improving availability.
with a simpler architecture
Typical disaster recovery solutions trade-off between poor recovery point and time objective (RPO/RTO) achievement and expensive replication strategies for more immediate response with minimal data loss. NuoDB’s active-passive capabilities provide protection without exorbitant cost.
Improve customer satisfaction
with better availability
Customers expect the best - performance, features, security, and service - but they don’t want to wait, offline, during an upgrade. With NuoDB, keep customer satisfaction and application availability high with rolling upgrades and a database resilient to unplanned failures and outages.

Today’s requirements go beyond the traditional notions of “high availability.” Customers and users expect modern applications to be always-on and always available.
