We all know that information technology is always evolving, growing and sometimes completely changing. All the while some technologies that use SQL seem as though they have been around forever relatively unchanged. All of that is about to change thanks for the SQL database developments by NuoDB.
NuoDB has created an elastic SQL database environment for cloud computing. This elastic design is not only SQL complaint but is also being called newSQL. Because if it’s distributed Cloud architecture, the NuoDB SQL database is able to scale out without slowing down. Due to the distributor nature of the processing, adding additional computers only serves to speed up the system rather than bog it down.
What stands out about NuoDB are the free licenses given out for developers known as the “Community Edition”. Even with the ability to process 1 million transactions per second, NuoDB isn’t satisfied and is more than happy to include the community and improve their software.
NuoDB already has a lot correct with this new software. It seemed impossible to design something that could beat SQL at its own game, but NuoDB seems to have done just that. It’s going to be exciting to see how it evolves in developed over the next decade just as SQL has.
