NuoDB Launches NuoDB 2.4 with Docker Support

Date 2015/12/22 10:19:48 | Topic: Product News

NuoDB, the database for cloud-enabled global applications, has announced formal support of Docker as an approved implementation platform. NuoDB's distributed database design aligns with the architectural requirements for container-based deployment. Coinciding with this announcement is the general availability of NuoDB Release 2.4, which delivers advanced management capabilities, expands NuoDB's enterprise-class SQL support, and streamlines database administration.
As more organizations embrace containers as a development and deployment platform, they often struggle to reconcile Docker's inherent administrative benefits, resource efficiencies, and horizontal scaling with the monolithic, rigid, and deeply physical nature of traditional databases. In contrast, NuoDB's Durable Distributed Cache (DDC) architecture enables customers to add capacity on-demand across multiple hosts, containers, and even data centers, making it easier for the database to work naturally within and with containers to deliver an elastic, transactional data management service for Docker.

This integration exploits that natural affinity to ensure customers deploying on Docker can rely on a robust database platform built around the same principles that are driving Docker's widespread adoption. Specifically, NuoDB enables:
* Container mobility and on-demand capacity at the data layer
* Automatic cross-container caching of database data
* Operational and administrative capabilities such as security and backup that have been designed expressly for the container environment

NuoDB's native support for Docker provides customers with a wide range of deployment options based on their requirements. As a network of peers capable of functioning within a hybrid environment, NuoDB's processes can operate wholly within Docker containers or split between containers and physical servers. This flexibility extends also to private, public, or hybrid cloud deployments.
