NuoDB For Financial Services

Financial services leaders require a first class, cloud-native relational database to build solutions that deliver the horizontal scalability, reliability, and performance their customers demand. 

To deliver scalable and reliable solutions, they must seek solutions that meet their technical needs. Financial services organizations need solutions that meet these critical technical capabilities as they move to the cloud: 

  • Build new SQL mission-critical applications 
  • Transition existing SQL mission-critical applications 
  • Scale out to meet the needs of high frequency OLTP workloads
  • On demand scalability to meet peaks and drops in demand 

For organizations designing an IT roadmap for moving to microservices and container-based architectures, it's essential to select a cloud-native distributed SQL database. Three critical features to look for include: 

  • Always-on configurable redundancy
  • Designed for modern architectures and deployments
  • Active-Active multi-master

The NuoDB Architecture

Traditional relational database management systems (RDBMS) perform well on-premises, though they require significant investment in pre-provisioning for maximum anticipated demand, in addition to multiple backup and emergency systems, each with the same specifications. These costs are significant, and they result in a database that can’t scale out and back based on demand.

Distributed SQL architecture uses a two-layer abstraction that separates application requests from storage processing, enabling scale out flexibility and continuous availability. Because transaction processing scales independently of storage management, your banking application is able to process all the queries that come in extremely quickly - whether during close of business day, month, or year. Multiple copies of the storage management layer provide durability regardless of network, software, and hardware failures - and all data is highly consistent across nodes.

Why NuoDB Distributed SQL for Financial Services?


Horizontally scale out compute or redundant storage based on real-time demand, without stopping database services or over-provisioning your RDBMS.


Rely on in-memory caches to automatically adjust for optimal workload performance based on access patterns—without sharding the database.


Perform upgrades and withstand potential failure at all levels—of a process, a host, or a data center—while maintaining application availability.


Run in your environment of choice: on-premises, in containers, in one or more clouds, or in a hybrid-cloud deployment.
