You make ask yourself, what is the point in switching to NuoDB when there are already so many options out there? Well, NuoDB is the only cloud database software optimized to work with distributed computing. Typically, SQL databases will perform poorly on clusters. NuoDB is pretty much the only viable option for large enterprises to utilized their server farms.
Cluster computing technology is not a new thing but it is typically used for simplified software projects. NuoDB is ahead of the curve with one of the most complex pieces of software in distributed computing. The more physical servers that are added to the network, the more efficient SQL database requests will become.
NuoDB wasn’t always referred to as NuoDB. In 2008, the founders named the project Nimbus DB. Deciding that the name was not so sleek, they had renamed the project to its current name. Since the name change, NuoDB has become immensely popular with venture capital companies.
Right now, several companies had already switched their servers over to the superiority of cloud computing. Alfa Systems and the UAE Exchange are a couple big names that come to mind. Since it is based on SQL technology, it is easy to port over old databases to NuoDB.
