NuoDB is a firm and transactional DBMS created for the deployment in the cloud. It should be noted that the cloud database is a SQL oriented one and currently characterized as NewSQL due to its support for the scale-out process in the cloud environments. While NuoDB interacts with Application programs using SQL statements, it also diverges from a normal relational database structure.
The cloud database follows a three-tier structure including administrative, storage, and transactional tiers. This makes sure that NuoDB is working without coupling an application or its data to a drive. Interestingly, the cloud database separates data elements into special software objects named “atoms.” NuoDB is built with a durable distributed cache design and offers in-memory caches to provide an elastically scalable database to the cloud environment. The cloud database also supports MVCC or multi-version concurrency control for detecting data deadlocks and addressing access conflicts.
Interestingly, NuoDB also supports message-oriented and object-oriented distributing methodologies in computing. While coming to the firm, NuoDB was originally named as NimbusDB, founded in 2008. The approval for its filing for the elastically scalable cloud database patent request was approved in the year 2012. Currently, the database technology is used by many reputed firms in different industries, including Dassault Systèmes, Alfa Systems, Kodiak, and UAE Exchange.
