nuodb: THE Distributed SQL DATABASE

NuoDB and its employees are motivated by a deceptively simple goal:
Build a database to power - and empower - today’s business-critical cloud applications

With its deep roots in database innovation, NuoDB is singularly focused on delivering a smarter database that can easily adapt to the emerging requirements of software organizations as they transform their successful on-premises models to accommodate the services-based cloud applications their customers now demand.

NuoDB combines the scale-out simplicity, elasticity, and continuous availability that hybrid cloud applications require, with the transactional consistency and durability that databases of record demand.

Elastic + SQL.
A Better Database for Today's Applications.

After decades of lethargy and complacency, the past decade has brought with it an explosion in innovation as organizations sought to harness the agility and elasticity of the cloud. Yet the poster child of that innovation - NoSQL - did so by abandoning the simplicity, rigor, and reliability of traditional relational databases.

As software companies increasingly turn to either containers or public, private, or hybrid cloud deployments to support their growing, global - and increasingly mobile - customer base, they need a database that can support today’s cloud-based, on-demand economy without sacrificing the guarantees that old guard of relational database provide.

Only NuoDB meets all these demands – plus much more – with a single, logical database running across computers within or across multiple data centers.

First envisioned by industry-renowned database architect and innovator Jim Starkey in 2008, NuoDB was launched in 2010 by Starkey and enterprise software executive Barry Morris. Fundamental to our founders’ vision was the idea of developing a database that builds on the power of SQL to move relational technology beyond the traditional monolithic databases designed 30 years ago. Today, that vision has re-defined relational database technology to tackle the multiple challenges associated with cloud computing and the rise of global application deployments.

NuoDB is backed by three former CEOs of the four original relational database companies. Our senior management team includes former executives from such organizations as BroadVision, Endeca, ExaGrid, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IONA Technologies, Iron Mountain, Microsoft, Object Design, Oracle, Qlik, StreamBase Systems, Teradata, and Veracode.

Since its founding, NuoDB received its first patent in a record 15 months with a U.S. Patent & Trademark Office finding of “no prior art.” Five additional patents are currently pending.

Conceived by an innovator. Funded by market leaders. Led by industry veterans. And built by the some of the smartest minds in the business. 

This is NuoDB.
