NuoDB Announces Alliance With Leading Data Integrity Vendor

Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA – September 16, 2014 – NuoDB, Inc., the leader in webscale distributed database technology, announced today an alliance with Guardtime, the Silicon-Valley-based inventor of Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI) technology, and global leader in ensuring data integrity.

NuoDB and Guardtime both focus their product strategies on innovative technology to eliminate impediments to the growing trend of distributing data on a global scale. As geo-distributed deployments grow, and begin to dominate the IT landscape, data management becomes very complex. This situation is further exacerbated by the accelerating adoption of cloud computing with its “deploy anywhere” nature.

Both companies boast multiple patents for their unique intellectual property and are at the forefront of eliminating the operational nightmare presently associated with globally distributed data.

The Guardtime and NuoDB alliance has already identified the most immediate technical blockers to simplifying data management on a worldwide scale. The two companies will be working together to simplify the following challenges:

  • Maintenance of a global auto log
  • Key management, specific multiple keys in multiple geographies.

The technology

Guardtime’s Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI) is the only mechanism to provide webscale, mathematical certainty that an enterprise’s infrastructure is in the correct state and alerting when it is not. While some believe it is impossible to prevent unauthorized acts, Guardtime makes it possible to have 100% detection and real-time mitigation.

NuoDB is a distributed database designed for global application deployment. It is a single, logical database that is always active and consistent both within a single datacenter and across datacenters. This supports running a database across physically separate geographic regions (for instance, running a database across servers in Sydney, Singapore, Virginia, etc.).

“Guardtime's Keyless Signature Infrastructure and solutions protect an enterprise’s most precious commodity – its data and intellectual property,” stated Matthew Johnson, Guardtime CTO. “Combining Guardtime’s keyless security infrastructure expertise with NuoDB’s deep experience in the global distribution of data is sure to improve and simplify global application deployments in the cloud or the datacenter.

“With an escalating need to manage globally-distributed data among our enterprise and software vendor customers, NuoDB is proactively addressing the range of complex, technical challenges inherent to scale and crossing geographic boundaries” stated Seth Proctor, NuoDB CTO.

“The recent selection of Guardtime as the KSI vendor for the Ericsson cloud underscores the depth of practical ability their technologies bring to simplifying and enabling secure, geo-distributed deployment,” concluded Proctor.
