NuoDB for Modernizing Cloud Applications

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT

As a provider of software as a service (SaaS), you already know the benefits of the cloud. It’s easier than ever to get a new application up, running, and available to customers with limited financial risk. 

The cloud’s pay-as-you-go model couples well with the use of open source databases for initial low-cost development. But as your cloud application matures, your database can have a limiting impact on your business growth - 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. 

If you don’t want to be held back by your database, then you want to turn to NuoDB.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

NuoDB better aligns your costs with revenue. 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.

for fluctuating growth

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.

It’s hard to move fast if you have to incorporate data management in your application logic. That’s why NuoDB keeps consistency, durability, and data logic in the database where it belongs - instead of in the application. 

 

NuoDB gives me one less thing to worry about so I can focus on helping my team build out our application for wide adoption.
