DropShip Adopts NuoDB For Scaling eCommerce Platform

NuoDB to "future proof" distributed supply chain management solution

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NuoDB, Inc., the leader in distributed database technology, today announced that DropShip Commerce, a leading provider of distributed supply chain management solutions for eCommerce, is deploying the NuoDB database management system as a business-critical component of their solution.

DropShip Commerce recently introduced NuoDB as the transactional database for their cloud-based SaaS platform, which manages the automated exchange of product, inventory, and customer data for thousands of trading partners and their extended network of suppliers. The NuoDB NewSQL database dynamically scales to meet DropShip's demanding transactional requirements.  

As the company added more and more trading partners, DropShip realized that the cost to maintain their existing database was becoming prohibitive. The company looked for a high-performance relational database that could easily handle the peaks and valleys of transaction volumes and found NuoDB. "NuoDB enables us to add capacity seamlessly when we need it, and just as seamlessly scale back when demand shifts," explains Scott Lemon, vice president of technology. "That's extremely critical to managing costs."

NuoDB also is dramatically improving DropShip's time to market. "The cost to develop software is very small in comparison to the cost to own it," explains Lemon. "NuoDB helps future proof our solution so that we can bring on a lot of customers with confidence that our code will stand up."

"NuoDB makes it extremely easy to change code as business requirements change," explained Scott Lemon, vice president of technology at DropShip. "As for the scaling, our ability to bring up NuoDB transaction engines with their cache and our code on-the-fly and dynamically scale out and in is a critical feature for us."

"We are excited about the integration of NuoDB into the most advanced platform for enabling drop shipping operations," said Barry Morris, CEO and Co-Founder of NuoDB. 

"As we continue working with DropShip Commerce we look forward to leveraging the power of NuoDB across geographies. NuoDB's distributed database is well suited to handle peak loads inherent to eCommerce database workloads.  NuoDB is the only SQL database that can be deployed as a single, logical database in a truly geo-distributed fashion," concluded Morris.
