NuoDb is an elastic SQL database that expands on IBM computer scientist Edgar Codd’s twelve rules of relational databases. The system is capable of handling over 1 million transaction per second and has the ability to run anywhere. The tiered approach of the database technology allows for predictable and scalable data in the cloud. The technology is often also referred to as “NewSQL”. NuoDB allows added servers to scale out on cloud based platforms without any sharding. No errors are likely to occur and the servers run more efficiently. The database is allowed to appropriate information to the correct nodes via peer to peer communication.
