“After a comprehensive trial and intense listening to our 3,500 beta customers, NuoDB is ready for market,” stated Barry Morris. “Our Cloud Data Management System is a game changer. We are challenging the industry to offer comparable elastic scaling, over 1 million transactions per second performance on just $50,000 worth of commodity hardware as published in our latest benchmark report, as well as the many other cloud-friendly features found in our NuoDB Starlings release.”
“Support from market leaders like NorthPoint, our first paying customer, and AutoZone, the number one automotive retailer in the United States, is invaluable validation of our technology as we become commercially available. They are prime movers among a growing vanguard of forward-thinking companies embracing the 21st century database,” continued Morris.
Among those presenting at the January 15th event will be Dave Tewksbary, a technical expert for Dassault Systemes. Mr. Tewksbary will be discussing the results of his extensive evaluation of the NuoDB solution since January 2012.
“NuoDB is launching a revolution in the database world by leveraging commodity storage. For the first time, an application’s storage requirements can be satisfied using a pool of shared resources, operating in a fully-elastic way, as the nature of cloud computing requires,” stated Richard Cooley, Managing Partner, NorthPoint.
“The database is no longer a monolithic, resource-intensive burden with limited scalability. While still maintaining the documented benefits of ACID and SQL, NuoDB is about as disruptive as it gets,” continued Cooley.
