PLAN FOR YOUR FUTURE
The cloud and its pay-as-you-go pricing has taken a lot of the risk out of developing and commercializing a new application. Today’s out-of-pocket costs don’t have the high overhead of expensive, pre-provisioned servers and network bandwidth - instead, your costs are directly in line with application adoption.
Except when it comes to the database. Traditional relational databases can consume 50-60 percent or more of your online application budget. That’s why so many young applications are built on top of open source databases. But developing on top of an open source database can confine you to their limitations and put a hold on how fast you can grow - whether it’s limiting your ability to scale out, adding data management complexity to your application logic, or making disaster recovery expensive or even impossible to manage.
One of our customers told us once: “Database divorce is hard.” Application migration from one database to another can be risky, time-consuming, and costly.
By building on NuoDB’s elastic SQL database from the start, you can maintain a low total cost of ownership that aligns with your application adoption without sacrificing your future growth.
