The NuoDB SQL database uses a unique technology, using objects called “atoms”, to allow the cloud database system to be exponentially elastic, while also ensuring that this SQL database stores the user’s data in a well maintained and secure fashion. After becoming available in January 2013, NuoDB has gained popularity as a reliable back-end SQL database solution. The elasticity of the NuoDB SQL database was created as a viable solution in a world of always-on modern applications. The way NuoDB integrates elastic resilience and support allows the SQL database to go beyond the service supplied by a traditional SQL database, making it a highly capable solution in a majority of real-world use cases. The NuoDB SQL database also offers support for full application migration to the cloud, allowing clients to use existing code and familiar SQL skills. Therefore, the SQL database can handle to data logic as continual updates are made, instead of relying on application logic to handle what should take place on the back-end.
