NuoDB 2.5 Released

Date 2016/9/20 8:24:50 | Topic: Product News

NuoDB has announced the general availability of NuoDB Release 2.5, as well as significant customer adoption among application providers and independent software vendors (ISVs) in the first half of 2016. ISVs added to the customer roster include BuyWinR, CauseSquare, Docunetix, Paystar, SyncUp, Unifying Solution, and WideOrbit.
With this release, NuoDB makes it easier to migrate existing applications off of inflexible, legacy databases and onto NuoDB's cloud-enabled offering. Specifically, Release 2.5 includes a wealth of SQL enhancements -- such as window functions and SQL optimizations -- and added capabilities to the management interface to make it even simpler to monitor, manage, and adjust the database. These improvements strengthen NuoDB's unique ability to support on-premises SQL applications transitioning to a cloud environment.

Savvy software vendors with historically on-premises offerings are increasingly diversifying their portfolio to add cloud-based versions of their software. In its most recent report, the Software Equity Group indicated that public software as a service (SaaS) companies grew at 28.5 percent compared to just 7.3 percent for public software companies that primarily offered perpetual, on-premises software(i).

The architectural rigidity of traditional relational databases makes it difficult for ISVs to capitalize on cloud benefits such as on-demand provisioning and pricing, minimal (or even zero) downtime, lower financial risk, and faster deployment. Conversely, NuoDB's Durable Distributed Cache architecture is fundamentally designed to operate in a cloud or containerized environment, delivering the elasticity, agility and global accessibility a cloud delivery model promises.
