In The Cloud With NuoDB

NuoDB was founded in 2008 by Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey, which was originally NimbusDB, but was changed in 2011. NuoDB is based out of Cambridge, Massachusetts and was approved for their patent for their “elastically scalable database” in June of 2012. The company was named one of 2014’s innovation all stars by Mass High Tech and Boston Business Journal. NuoDB’s database scales out without sharding and distributes tasks to several processers so to avoid bottlenecks of data. NuoDB uses in-memory caches to support cloud-style elasticity while maintaining that all data objects are safely stored.
Their database is being called SQL and when a server is added in order to scale-out the database, it runs faster and uses peer-to-peer messaging which routes the tasks to nodes. It also uses a tiered approach to help scale the data in the cloud. A round of funding in 2014 added $14.2 million in funds to the company.
