NuoDB Use Cases & Capabilities
NuoDB uniquely combines the critical requirements of the on-demand economy – elastic scalability, application resilience, disaster recovery, and cloud support – with a strict approach to maintaining the integrity of valuable data.
Learn how that combination delivers high-value to organizations across multiple industries.
Software-as-a-Service Use Cases
Every day, our customers use NuoDB to support their customers' on-demand requirements. Whether you need to migrate an on-premises application to the cloud, develop a new cloud application, or modernize an existing one – we can show you how our customers are doing it with NuoDB.
Application Migration to the Cloud
Today, every software company needs to think about providing software as a service. But migrating on-premises applications to the cloud brings application-level changes, service level agreements (SLAs), new infrastructure costs, and an upside-down cash flow model. When you need to simplify migration, lower costs, and reduce risk, turn to NuoDB.

Build New Cloud Applications
When you're building a new cloud application, you need to think about more than just getting it up and running - you also want to consider how you can scale and grow long term. NuoDB's distributed SQL database aligns application and database costs to your application adoption without sacrificing future growth.

Modernize Cloud Applications
Low-cost databases may make sense for cloud applications under development, but they can weigh you down when usage picks up. When you need to scale-out, provide disaster recovery or continuous availability, or reduce the data management burden on your application logic, you need NuoDB.
Read about modernizing cloud applications
Sometimes, your business strategy demands that you meet certain requirements - no matter what. When you need a database that can meet the needs of today’s always-on, virtualized world, you can rely on NuoDB to deliver.
Whether you’re planning for long-term growth or seasonal peaks, NuoDB enables you to easily and quickly add more capacity on demand without disruption or pre-provisioning - while still maintaining strict ACID semantics.
Read about elastic scalability
NuoDB’s automated redundancy and peer-to-peer architecture means that processes, hosts, even whole data centers can go down - voluntarily or through failure – without impacting database availability or putting durability and consistency at risk.
Read how NuoDB delivers continuous availability
If performance and availability are important measures of your application’s success, an active-active architecture can seem unattainable. It's not. NuoDB preserves ACID compliance even across data centers, but without the infrastructure complexity and additional licensing costs of other solutions.
Read about active-active operations
The ability to configure in-memory peers independently of each other enables NuoDB to support mixed read/write workload scenarios. One logical database can support a set of peers focused on transactional processing, as well as another set of peers configured to execute long-lived analytical queries without blocking the ongoing operational workloads.
Read about Hybrid Workloads
NuoDB supports global operations in hybrid cloud environments. A single, logical NuoDB database can run on a mix of on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud services, and across mixed commodity hardware (server, storage, network) environments.

Data globalization has led to the rapid rise of rules and legislation requiring sensitive data to remain resident within a particular country’s domain. NuoDB’s ability to partition data into storage groups ensures that it is stored on disk in a dedicated locale.
