Cloud Data Management System (CDMS)
Among the new generation of databases, some can scale out/in elastically like NuoDB but they don’t offer SQL or ACID guarantees. Others offer SQL compliance but they can’t achieve 1 million+ transactions per second like NuoDB.
NuoDB has recreated the relational database on a new foundation for the 21st century: partial, on-demand replication.
Application developers recognize the benefits of the traditional relational database: transactions that provide a consistent view of data, related changes that succeed or fail as a unit, and semantics that protect applications from details of physical data storage. However, relational databases have not met the challenges of data growth, availability, and audience. More people need more access to more data all of the time.
Traditional relational databases focus on moving data on and off disks through the narrow window of their cache using a single central point of control. That architecture worked in the early 1980’s when the ancestors of today’s relational systems roamed the earth. 21st century data and computing environments - huge disks, huge data, memory in gigabytes, and fast reliable networks – demand a new approach.
That’s why NuoDB has re-written the rules: to create a 21st century Cloud Data Management System that does everything you need a databases to do. Learn more.
