“A major goal in developing NuoDB has been the ability to scale elastically on hundreds of cores while also providing better performance than traditional centralized OLTP databases like MySQL,” stated Barry Morris, NuoDB CEO and Founder. “We have demonstrated that design goal with Beta 8, exhibiting superior performance on a single node on a variety of platforms. As we come closer to general availability later this year we expect to exceed other measures that are critical to performance in the cloud.”
“Our Beta 8 release represents a milestone in improved performance and greater product hardening, stated Adam Abrevaya, NuoDB Vice President of Engineering. “The release offers a ten-fold improvement in many standard, complex queries and 100% support for the top ORM tools. With the addition of Oracle Solaris we continue to broaden our support for industry-leading operating systems.”
"I've been a beta tester of NuoDB since last year and I am looking forward to the release of Beta 8. The promise of elastic scalability, ease of use and resiliency are important benefits for us,” stated Adrian Madrid, Lead Developer at North Point Advisors LLC.
