  • E-shops, or “e-commerce solutions,” have become quite popular in recent years. They’re especially attractive if you have a good idea, or simply great goods, because you can rapidly make your shop and then expand your business rather easily for success. One such e-commerce solution is nopCommerce . It’s free, open source (if that matters to you), and mainly based around Microsoft technologies – ASP.NET MVC, IIS, MS SQL.

    nopCommerce is a very versatile product, and not just a simple e-shop. It supports multiple

  • My name is Jiri Cincura and I was working recently in NuoDB on improving the .NET driver, mainly around Entity Framework support. But that’s not what I’d like to talk about for today. Today I’d like to talk about connection pooling. Something that’s well known for a lot of people in (not only) ADO.NET world.

    What it is? Let me tell you whole story. Opening and closing a connection is not easy. In fact it might take a lot of time. There are a few steps involved. You need to resolve the hostname to IP, open the connection physically, the server needs to

  • Introduction

    One of the new preview features of the NuoDB NewSQL DBMS 1.2 is the addition of SQL stored procedures to the toolbox that users have at their disposal. Although they don't add any new capability to the database engine, as the same task can be done by client code written in any of the supported languages (C++, Java, .NET, Python, Perl...), a significant part of the SQL community has grown used to write them mainly for performance and security purposes.

    The performance advantage can be seen when the procedure is executing several SQL statements: in fact, by running

  • You probably saw Paul's post this week announcing our 1.2 release . It's full of "previews." Why? 'Cause there are a bunch of things we've been working on quietly that are finally making it into the product. Needless to say, we're psyched about this stuff. The one preview feature that didn't make it onto Paul's list is that with 1.2 we're pulling back the curtain on our automation work.

    I've talked a lot on this blog about how easy it is to automate monitoring and management in NuoDB. I've also said that

  • Spoiler Alert!
    Details on our next GA release, NuoDB 1.2, follow below. No window dressing, just the facts, so read on...

    Our typical development cycle produces 1 "point release" every 3 months, and 2 minor "patch" releases in between. Not so this time around. We found there to be so much in new development that it merited a point designation, skipping a second patch, and the result is a bounty of feature "Preview" goodness.

    For starters, we've made significant

  • We like to keep things fresh here in our NuoDB Techblog, so we’re trying something new with this post. We’ve invited a developer from our community of users to contribute in a guest post, and his name is Jiri Cincura. I’m excited because he is going to talk about the great improvements he’s made to our new .NET driver. So not to steal any of his thunder I’ll leave it to you to read on – enjoy!


    I recently started working on NuoDB’s .NET driver to improve it, and especially to introduce Entity Framework

  • Tungsten Replicator is a software package that allows replication to be established between MySQL and another database product. This blog post describes how to configure replication between MySQL and NuoDB.

    The benefits of doing this are to:

  • Cambridge, MA – July 30, 2013 – NuoDB, Inc., the leader in NewSQL, announced a live webinar entitled “Transitioning to NuoDB with the Tungsten Replicator” on how to avoid the time consuming efforts typically associated with improving MySQL scale out.

    However the replication process results in the
