NuoDB has released NuoDB 2.6 to enable customers to elastically scale out their modern cloud applications as part of their digital transformation efforts. With formal support for active-active database deployments across Amazon Web Services (AWS) Availability Zones, NuoDB 2.6 enables organizations to maximize their AWS investments including better availability, utilization, performance, and resiliency.

NuoDB 2.6 also introduces table partitions and storage groups to efficiently improve performance, helping organizations improve customer satisfaction, reduce total cost of ownership, and provide a foundation for future growth. In addition, organizations migrating off of traditional relational databases can capitalize on NuoDB 2.6's extensive SQL compatibility to reduce the complexity, cost, effort, and time typically required from database migration.

Active-Active Database Deployment in AWS Eliminates Downtime

NuoDB 2.6 natively supports active-active deployment across AWS availability zones, making it easy and cost-effective for customers to eliminate downtime from outages while seamlessly serving higher volumes of customers.

Specifically, NuoDB 2.6:
* Does not require additional software (unlike other active-active databases)
* Supports both read and write access from multiple hosts
* Maintains ACID compliance

Customers can therefore maximize availability and performance of their applications while also optimizing AWS infrastructure utilization and guarding against process, server, and data center failures.


Table Partitioning and Distributed Storage Allow Greater Scale and Better Performance


Table partitioning in NuoDB 2.6 enables organizations to optimize query performance through partition pruning and parallelization and supports data management use cases such as data aging and fast data loading. NuoDB Storage Groups, also available with this release, enables customers to scale out the storage layer while maintaining a single, unified database view. This yields better performance through both higher throughput and data locality -- placing data closer to the user or application. The combination of the two new features allows applications to achieve better performance while lowering total cost of ownership. Customers can now efficiently perform actions such as data archiving and aging, and support data processing on lower cost hardware for specifically assigned data groups.

Improved SQL Compatibility Lowers Cost of Database Migration

As the demand to migrate SQL applications to the cloud continues to increase, NuoDB 2.6 ensures developers can use existing SQL code, tools, and skills to streamline modernization efforts. Unlike other offerings, NuoDB does not abandon ACID guarantees or require a re-write of SQL applications to take advantage of cloud scale-out benefits. NuoDB 2.6 adds to features delivered in NuoDB 2.5 to make it easier for organizations to migrate applications built on traditional databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or MySQL to NuoDB's elastic SQL database. By continuing to make it easier for customers to port applications from traditional databases to NuoDB, developers can deliver new and expanded software-as-a-service products faster.
