NuoDB Combining The Best Of NewSQL and Cloud Computing

In the current fast changing technology world it is easy for companies to be overwhelmed by the array of Database Management Systems (DBMSs) that are available to them. First there are the traditional relational that provide ACID compliance and standard SQL interfaces but can’t scale without sharding and overprovisioning. Next there are NoSQL databases that provide availability and simplified scaling but sacrifice consistency, SQL compliance and durability. Then there are NewSQL databases that scale easily while providing ACID and SQL compliance. However, most NewSQL, databases are optimized for specific use cases that may not be applicable to your business. Finally there are cloud databases provided by various cloud providers. These cloud databases scale easily but anchor users to a single cloud provider.
