Software organizations face major data hurdles when defining their cloud strategies, often believing they need to make significant compromises. However, your valuable data should be accessible to your application, anytime, and no matter where that application is located. With NuoDB, there is no need to make commonly believed sacrifices. Your data is not locked down in a data center or siloed in a cloud vendor environment. You do not need to struggle with syncing, accuracy, or data management issues.
NuoDB’s unique architecture allows your applications to access a single, logical, ACID-compliant database while deploying your data for access across:
- Physical, virtual, and container platforms
- On-premises, multiple data center, multiple cloud, and hybrid cloud environments
Here are some examples:
Migration to the Cloud:

Ideally, you’d keep your applications available and online while you migrate your data to the cloud. But, typical cloud migrations are complicated and require complex coordination, forcing your application offline while making the move. With NuoDB, you can provide continuous availability and up-to-date access to your data across both your traditional on-premises and new cloud environment as you undergo your migration. This gives you the flexibility to incrementally migrate your applications on your own timeframe and eventually shut down the on-premises side only after you are certain your cloud environment is functioning as required.
Availability During a Cloud Outage:

Disaster recovery plans are an essential part of an organization’s cloud strategy. If your primary cloud environment suffers an outage, switching cloud providers or adding a new cloud provider while minimizing downtime and keeping data accurate can be a herculean effort. With NuoDB, it’s straightforward to deploy process nodes in the new cloud environment, add them to the existing NuoDB domain, and run an active-active database that’s designed to provide continuous availability, even in the event of a cloud provider outage.
Hybrid Cloud Application Architectures:

Software organizations that develop and run multiple applications often want to give those applications access to the same set of data. However, the typical approach to replicating and syncing data across your applications can cause huge data management headaches. If you are trying to do this across hybrid cloud environments, the issues become even more challenging to address. Avoid the complexities of managing multiple ETL or data replication pipelines by deploying NuoDB as your single system of record across all your applications.
With NuoDB, you can avoid data lock-in, serve data to your applications wherever it may be located, while preserving data and transactional integrity.
