NuoDB is a scalable SQL database software built for the cloud and the modern datacenter. It has evolved into NewSQL, an advanced SQL that is capable of scaling and performing in high-demand cloud database environments. The database utilizes distributed server instances to delegate workloads between them in a peer-to-peer (P2P) model. This implies that new server instances are able to scale out the database.
NuoDB has been widely used for mission-critical cloud applications. It is very popular among companies whose functions involve processing of large data sets. Some of the companies that use NuoDB technology for data management and processing include Kodiak, UAE Exchange, and Alfa systems.
NuoDB Inc. is the developer and marketer of the NuoDB cloud database. The tech company was established in 2008 as NimbusDB, but three years later it changed its name to NuoDB. It was founded by Barry S. Morris who is currently the company’s executive chairman and Jim Starkey who is the strategic advisor to the company.
The software provider is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts and has other offices in San Francisco, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. In June 2017, the company announced its plans to open new offices in the Middle East and Africa.
