Thanks for your interest in the NuoDB Test Drive. Today, the Test Drive is a Docker-based implementation and only available on Linux platforms and Amazon Web Services.

For Windows users interested in evaluating NuoDB, we offer the NuoDB Community Edition. 

The NuoDB Community Edition is a multi-host version of the NuoDB distributed database, limited to three Transaction Engines and one Storage Manager. 

The Community Edition is free of charge and allows you to self-evaluate NuoDB through a series of quick-start guides and/or build and run your applications on your own laptop, desktop, or in the cloud:

  • ACID compliant transactions
  • Rich ANSI SQL capabilities
  • Simple to use administration

Step 1:

Review the System Requirements.

Step 2:

Select and download NuoDB Release 2.6.1 for the appropriate operating system (listed to the right). By downloading, you accept these terms and conditions.

Step 3:

Visit the Developer Center for tips on getting started, product documentation and user forums. Support for the Community Edition is available only through the KnowledgeBase.

Community Edition Restrictions:

  • Maximum of 500 GB of data
  • 100 connections per engine
  • Maximum of 500 tables
  • Maximum of 500 columns per table
  • Maximum of 1 billion rows per table
  • Maximum of 50 indexes per table
  • 32 GB of RAM per node/engine

Note: While we provide the Community Edition on both Linux and Windows, we currently only support Linux for production deployments.

If you aren't ready to talk to us quite yet, take a look at our evaluation page for other download options.

Download version updated March 2017 with v2.6.1

Unlike our Self-Directed Trial and Proof of Concept evaluation options, scaling on the Community Edition is limited to three transaction processing nodes and one durability node and cannot run across multiple data centers.

If you’d like to explore those capabilities, you can contact us to discuss a Self-Directed Trial or Proof of Concept or request a free short consultation with a solution architect who will explore with you how NuoDB could fit into your application's architecture.
