The NuoDB 3.0 release extends its technology ecosystem integration, which currently includes support for Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) and Docker containers, by adding support for Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Red Hat cloud environments.
Generally available and in production since 2013, NuoDB‘s “elastic” SQL database for hybrid cloud applications is designed to help customers get applications to market faster and reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO).
“As customers look for opportunities to transition to the cloud, many struggle to align their application stack and database systems in a common cohesive strategy,” said Ariff Kassam, vice president of products, NuoDB. “Elastic SQL databases are designed to solve that very challenge providing rich SQL data access, preserving ACID compliant transactions, all while allowing the database to elastically scale out. With our latest release, we can take on the requirements of the most sophisticated architectures while helping our customers avoid vendor lock in and prepare for the future needs of their business and applications.”
In addition, NuoDB 3.0 can now operate in an active-active-active deployment across three Availability Zones, making it even easier for organizations to operate in hybrid or multi-cloud environments. The latest release would also include substantial improvements designed to optimize performance, including across multi-data-center environments.
Performance enhancements in the NuoDB 3.0 release would include:
- Improved modular query optimizer enabling users to perform complex, sophisticated queries against an enterprise-class elastic SQL database without compromising database performance.
- Substantial improvements to increase performance for OLTP write-intensive workloads.
“Having a database designed to operate smoothly within a Red Hat OpenShift environment while still maintaining data persistence and strict transactional consistency is important for many of our customers,” said Julio Tapia, director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. “NuoDB‘s peer-to-peer architecture is well-suited for a container-based infrastructure, and we’re excited to provide this as an option to our customers.”
