Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
NuoDB, Inc., a startup offering the industry’s only elastically scalable, emergent database for the cloud, today announced availability of Beta 9 of its groundbreaking SQL database.
This latest release is available immediately for download by NuoDB’s rapidly growing beta user base of nearly 2,000 developers, database administrators and independent software vendors. It will be the final beta version of the NuoDB software prior to general availability. A shipping date for Version 1.0 will be announced within the next 30 days.
Simultaneously, NuoDB also announced a summary of their beta results in a related press release entitled: NuoDB Beta Participants Highlight Latest Cloud Database Trends.
What’s new in Beta 9
Beta tested by nearly 2,000 users
“Over the past year, we have released nine betas, each more cloud-friendly and higher performing than its predecessor,” stated Barry Morris, NuoDB CEO and Co-Founder.
Morris continued, “Nearly 2,000 beta customers have so far taken full advantage of our emergent architecture, using it as the backend for their Web-scale applications; to test migration from traditional RDBMS and as a support for building SaaS applications. With general availability of NuoDB to be announced soon, we fully expect to see an explosion of creative use cases and even greater performance gains. What we’ve accomplished so far is just the beginning of a revolution in 21st century database technology.”
“We are seeing a growing number of new databases designed for web scalability and performance without sacrificing valuable relational features," said RedMonk analyst Donnie Berkholz. "The doubling of NuoDB’s user base since Beta 8, less than two months ago, indicates significant momentum, and a market demand for cloud databases that support transactions."
“With NuoDB we can, at last, solve the problem of having multiple instances of the same data in two different regions on our AWS servers, without have to worry about replication configuration and concurrent updates. Everything is "synched in a snap". We are very happy with the NuoDB Beta 8, and look forward to working with the final version of the database.” Chief Information Officer, Embritive.
