NuoDB Picks Up Where Traditional Databases Stop

Application development will inevitably hit a brick wall when it comes to traditional database capacity, simply because capacity cannot be delivered on demand. NuoDB, a provider of webscale distributed database solutions, speaks to these challenges with its distributed, peer-to-peer approach.

Cloud computing is a real and important technology that has helped a lot of organizations when it comes to data hosting and keeping costs down. With cloud management software being highly secure, location-independent as well as offering IT options better than traditional IT services, it makes for an attractive option for all types of organizations.

Globalization, security and disaster recovery considerations are driving business to diversify locations across multiple regions. In addition, organizations are looking to distribute workloads between computers, share network resources effectively and increase the availability of applications.

NuoDB distributed database speaks to the geographically dispersed challenges by allowing organizations to distribute a single, logical database across multiple geographies with multiple master copies and transactional consistency.

When it comes to working in the cloud, one key issue is security. The most commonly cited cloud security issues are unauthorized access to customer information, encryption, application security, identity management and virtualization security.

How does NuoDB feel about cloud security and how is it changing the security landscape with its product?

Listen to NuoDB CEO Barry Morris speak to TMNet from the Cloud Expo about its stance on security and other issues surrounding cloud computing straight from the showroom floor.
