NuoDB is a prominent data-base company which was created in 2008 by the Oxford educated software designer and company creator, Barry S. Morris and Interbase architect and entrepreneur, Jim Starkey. The company is currently led by CEO Bob Walmsley and operates primarily out of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company has achieved quite a bit of notoriety for its use of a elastically scalable database as well as for providing service for such companies as the French multi-national software company, Dassault Systemes, Kodiak and the Arab Emirates foreign exchange company, UEA Exchange.
NuoDB utilizes a unique SQL (Structured Query Language – the standard query language utilized for database management and communications systems) which is tailored specifically for cloud apps (which is any application which mobilizes both local and cloud based components to work in synchronicity).
What is really interesting and highly useful concerning the NuoDB tech is that because of its unique propensities, whenever a new server is added to any NuoDB connected database the whole database increases in speed as opposed to many other procedures where such a action would do the contrary and slow down the entire database. The NuoDB has exceedingly high processing power and is calculated to process upwards of one million different transactions per second.
