Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey founded the NuoDB software suite in 2011 with a very limited amount of resources. Databases were dominated by just a few products, so they had been determined to create a competitive product that will stand out from the rest.
Their original name had been Nimbus DB. They decided to go for a shorter, more marketable name like Nuo DB. The name change must have had an impact because the following year they had received millions in venture capital funding. The company is now rated as one of the top database solutions available.
Since NuoDB is based on SQL technology, it has the ability to import Microsoft SQL and MySQL databases. Switching has never been easier with such a dynamic piece of software.
In addition to being a lightweight database, it is designed to work with distributed computing. This means that NuoDB is optimized to run the cloud-based software. Using NuoDB with clusters, you may add even more CPU power by linking multiple machines together. This will also assure that the database will keep running even if some machines will fail.
So what are you waiting for? Several large companies have already switched their cloud applications to the power of NuoDB.
