NuoDB is a clod database system that is SQL-oriented for better database transaction management. The company is designed to distribute deployment to the cloud. NuoDB can also be categorized as one of the most sophisticated cloud database systems that can be incorporated into the supported database systems for cloud computing and the associated environments. With the SQL statements, the applications will communicate with NuoDB like any other relational database out there. For this reason, the database includes the ACID forms of compliance for reliability and transactions. However, the NuoDB architecture can diverge from the previous approaches using the three-tier structure with the storage, transactional, and administrative tiers.
NuoDB has also developed a layered approach that that works closer to the application coupling with disk drives. This action has also been proved to achieve great benefits when it comes to cloud computing. NuoDB also works by dividing the data elements into software options called the atoms. A durable distributed cache is also used to develop the distributed cache in cloud database computing. Perhaps this is the reason why NuoDB is assimilated on a massive scale in the industry. The atoms developed by NuoDB are used to set elasticity while ensuring multi-version concurrency for message-oriented and object-oriented computing methodologies.
