CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NuoDB, Inc., the leader in distributed database technology, today announced a further expansion of its global partner program. The company is now offering independent software vendors (ISVs) access to free software, specialized training, and NuoDB's database experts. Using NuoDB's distributed SQL database technology can deliver their products on public and private clouds, with on-demand capacity, continuous availability and geo-distributed operation.
Cloud cited as highest priority
An estimated 60% of technology leaders recently listed "cloud computing" as their top priority (source) and 2014 is projected to be the year that more than 50% of apps will be served from the cloud (source). As a result, unsurprisingly, enterprise and mid-market application vendors are in the process of implementing cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategies, as well as enabling their customers to deploy on-premise apps in more flexible, scale-out ways.
ISVs choose multiple criteria as critical to cloud success.
On-demand capacity -- the ability to easily accommodate peaks and valleys in application demand -- is often the first advantage in migrating or building applications in the cloud. Immediately following scaling, ISVs tackle other tangible requirements to being cloud-scale, including continuous availability, being secure out of the box, working across multiple datacenters and having provisioning interfaces as first-class components.
Benefits of the NuoDB ISV Partner Program
The NuoDB solution allows software vendors to more rapidly address this tidal wave of customer demand by offering benefits such as:
- Scaling out/in while also automatically handling unexpected spikes or failures;
- Continuous availability in the face of failure and for a wide variety of maintenance tasks
- Being highly secure out of the box, with authentication of all connections and encryption of all data;
- Running as a single, logical database across multiple datacenters;
- Treating provisioning interfaces as first-class components;
- Meeting or beating ISV SQL checklists;
- Simplification and cost reduction in the deployment, configuration and administration of a NuoDB cloud database.
The new program offers participants:
- Free NuoDB software
- Specialized training and documentation
- Onsite support from a NuoDB solutions engineer
- Ongoing technical support.
"Traditional scale-up database systems are not cloud-native, and are both costly and cumbersome without delivering on the promise of the cloud," stated Barry Morris, NuoDB CEO and Co-Founder. "Because NuoDB was designed specifically for the cloud, it provides the benefits ISVs are looking for, like simplicity, flexibility, continuous availability, and active/active operation across datacenters."
"ISVs need something out of the box that's secure, flexible enough to solve a variety of problems, easy to automate and resilient in the face of failure," said Seth Proctor, NuoDB CTO.
"Starting from its distributed architecture NuoDB provides a powerful building block for on-premise, public cloud or any other deployment model that needs active-active properties," concluded Proctor.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
