Core Banking

Database built for distributed deployments - still SQL

About 80% of financial institutions run core banking systems they built themselves. These institutions use software designed in the pre-internet era for physical branch banking. While their technology has evolved based on the available technology and customer needs and demands, it wasn’t architected for distributed deployment.


Risk & Complexity - A typical universal bank runs more than 180 documented applications, which restricts flexibility and creates thousands of points of failure.

Scalability - Traditional banking systems can't keep up with the pressures created by their modern, digital front-ends.

Expectation Gaps - Customers expect financial institutions to move beyond traditional bank roles and help them make better financial and commercial decisions.

Legacy Architecture - Maintaining legacy banking systems consumes a significant percentage of a bank’s IT budget, leaving little room for innovation.

Benefits of NuoDB

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

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

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