Capacity to meet your demands
Creating and capitalizing on opportunities is the hallmark of a successful business. When customer demand spikes due to unanticipated popularity or seasonal swings, you can’t afford for your application to crash or start lagging under the pressure.
That’s why - if you want to maintain application responsiveness and availability - you need to architect for scale. It’s relatively simple to add application servers and even storage for scaling, but the database has historically been the least scalable component in application architectures - it’s no wonder that the words “scaling the database” can be the stuff of nightmares.
Scaling a traditional relational database requires expensive pre-provisioning, risky rip and replace procedures, sharding, or complicated clustering strategies.
But turning to NoSQL means adding even more development burden on your application team - potentially requiring substantial rewrites to the application to incorporate data management logic now abandoned by the database.
Our customers turn to NuoDB for a simple approach to scale out.
