NuoDB for Developing New Cloud Applications

PLAN FOR YOUR FUTURE

The cloud and its pay-as-you-go pricing has taken a lot of the risk out of developing and commercializing a new application. Today’s out-of-pocket costs don’t have the high overhead of expensive, pre-provisioned servers and network bandwidth - instead, your costs are directly in line with application adoption.

Except when it comes to the database. Traditional relational databases can consume 50-60 percent or more of your online application budget. That’s why so many young applications are built on top of open source databases. But developing on top of an open source database can confine you to their limitations and put a hold on how fast you can grow - whether it’s limiting your ability to scale out, adding data management complexity to your application logic, or making disaster recovery expensive or even impossible to manage.

One of our customers told us once: “Database divorce is hard.” Application migration from one database to another can be risky, time-consuming, and costly.

By building on NuoDB’s elastic SQL database from the start, you can maintain a low total cost of ownership that aligns with your application adoption without sacrificing your future growth.

BENEFITS

Elastic Scale

NuoDB’s simple and elastic scaling means you add capacity only when you need it - and let go of it when you don’t. No pre-provisioning, over-provisioning, sharding, or complex redundancy. And completely transparent to the application.

Continuous Availability

In the competitive world of SaaS apps, downtime can make or break your success. NuoDB’s peer-to-peer architecture can absorb failures, outages and rolling upgrades, all while staying up and running.

ALIGNS COSTS WITH REVENUE

Upfront costs can dramatically increase the time to profitability for new applications. NuoDB’s elastic scaling and the familiarity of SQL means you minimize both ongoing and development costs, while automated redundancy and disaster recovery keeps infrastructure simple and hardware utilization high.

“[With NuoDB,] we not only get a database that can maintain exceptionally high availability, we also can easily (and cost-effectively) add capacity when we need it without compromising on transactional consistency or data durability.

THE CAUSESQUARE STORY

When it comes to charitable giving, engaging with your audience is critical to successful fundraising. CauseSquare has built a social media platform that makes it easy for not-for-profit organizations to build, maintain, and communicate with a community of past and potential donors.

But CTO Walid Darwish knew that choosing a “free” database would cost the company a lot more once the application gained traction. NuoDB gives them a platform that will grow as quickly as they do - without costing a fortune.
