  • Nice work! You just upgraded your NuoDB environment. (If you haven’t done this step, my four simple steps to upgrading your NuoDB database post might help you.)

    So now that you’ve upgraded your environment, how can you be sure your upgrade process has completed? After all, your environment probably contains more than one node, right? So, what happens if you missed one? How can you be sure that you’ve completely upgraded your database?

    This can be a

  • Here at NuoDB we're pretty fired-up! This week we’re saddling the horses in anticipation of our trip out to KubeCon 2019 held in San Diego next week! A bunch of us will be there showing the benefits of running the NuoDB distributed SQL database in either single or multi-cluster Kubernetes environments. We’ll also be attending a lot of the sessions and learning how others in the community are using Kubernetes.

    If your company is considering reducing IT infrastructure and application deployment costs by moving SQL database workloads to either on-

  • Between 2010 and 2017, personal loans by FinTech start-ups as a proportion of total loans leapt from 1 percent to 36 percent. That jump alone caused a lot of consternation in traditional banking . And it’s estimated that technology disruption could affect up to 80 percent of revenue for traditional retail banks beyond 2020. The changing face of global commerce is also reflected in a

  • So you’ve been using the NuoDB database for a while now, and you love it! You heard that NuoDB came out with a new release that includes a bunch of new features and functionality. Sounds great — all you have to do is to upgrade your database software and protocol to the latest version. But what’s the best way to go through that upgrade process?

    There are four steps that you need to go through, and I'll walk you through each one of them in more detail:

    Step 1: Prepare for Upgrade

    It’s best to start by validating that your archive has no issues that

  • This year NuoDB is joining the 8,000 business leaders, decision makers, and subject experts from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations, and technology partners at Sibos. Sibos is running from September 23-26 at the ExCel in London. Organised and facilitated by SWIFT, the global provider of secure financial messaging services, Sibos brings the financial community together in London with amazing sessions, inspiring speakers, lots of networking opportunities, and some very cool social events. The Sibos team put together a list of

  • In SQL you can perform a lot of DDL operations, such as creating or renaming tables, creating or removing columns, and more, and these DDL statements are most often used when creating or upgrading your application schema. However, there’s more to transactional DDL than just being able to do large schema updates atomically. Transactional DDL also provides protection against failures. That means that networks can fail, machines can fail, and still, NuoDB will guarantee that all schema modifications are either all applied or nothing is applied. Essentially this means that all operations

    In my first NuoDB in Docker blog, I outlined how to deploy the NuoDB database in Docker containers . To follow up on that, let's put NuoDB to the test. Mileage will vary based on the available compute and disk storage used, but even the Community Edition on a single host will demonstrate NuoDB's OLTP

  • While many enterprises are now ready to embrace cloud computing, they’ve struggled to move highly transactional systems of record to the cloud. For enterprises in regulated sectors such as banking and other financial services, there’s been a real challenge as they look for ways to move mission-critical OLTP SQL databases — and the applications that rely on them — to the cloud. Historically, relational SQL databases required single-server architectures, which made scaling

  • Apache Zeppelin is a completely open web-based notebook that enables interactive data analytics, data ingestion, data exploration, visualisation, sharing, and collaboration.

    This project will demonstrate how to run analytic queries and data visualisation against NuoDB using Zeppelin Notebooks with SparkSQL, Python, and NuoSQL.

    We will also set up basic authentication using Apache Shiro to control access to the notebooks that you create.

  • The Financial Services industry is in the midst of widespread disruption as they experience both phenomenal growth and unprecedented competition. What key change drivers are pushing this disruption? Will traditional financial service providers be able to keep up, or will disruptive competitors take the lead?

    In the past, North America and Europe may have been considered the homeland of financial institutions. However, as globalization increases and smartphones revolutionize access to the internet, this focus is shifting. Strengthening
