NuoDB Releases Version 2.0 of its NewSQL Distributed Database

sql-databaseNuoDB, Inc., provider of NewSQL distributed database technology, announces the general availability of NuoDB Blackbirds Release 2.0. The new features in Release 2.0 would improve quality, stability and ‘global’ performance of the database.

Release 2.0 marks the first, worldwide customer deployment of NuoDB as a single, logical database in multiple geographies. As a launching customer, software-as-a-service provider Fathom Voice selected NuoDB for its global VoIP platform. The company needed a single, logical database that could be shared across multiple Amazon AWS servers in different geographies. The database solution needed to be updated in real-time, automatically scaling out during peak demand to handle increased traffic, then back in during off peak hours.

Database provisioning

NuoDB Geo-Distribution is a feature in release 2.0 that keeps your data always active and consistent both within a single datacenter and across datacenters. This supports running a database across physically separate geographic regions – for instance, running a database across servers in Sydney, Singapore, Virginia, and so on.

Version 2.0 would also make database provisioning, monitoring and management simple with the NuoDB Automation Console.  This new automation tool provides standard, out-of-the-box templates for configuring your domain of databases. And, with Auto Administration enabled NuoDB will automatically start another database node on a new machine to ensure service level agreements associated with a template is met.

Lower ISP’s total cost

Launched in 2010 by industry-renowned database architect Jim Starkey and accomplished software CEO Barry Morris, the company is based in Cambridge, MA.

In Spring 2013 when HP Moonshot was launched, NuoDB demonstrated the multi-tenant nature of its database solution. NuoDB states that with the help from the HP Discovery Lab, the company was able to run 72,000 NuoDB databases on a fully loaded Moonshot system with 45 cartridges. Using its hibernation and bursting capability, this deployment would reduce an ISP’s total cost of hardware, maintenance and power consumption by an estimated 90%.
