News Flashes

NuoDB, Inc., a Cambridge, MA-based startup offering what the company describes as an elastically scalable cloud data management system (CDMS) will make its solution generally available on January 15. NuoDB was launched in 2010 by Jim Starkey and Barry Morris. "The problem for databases has always been that for a full-fledged database to go faster you need a bigger machine, and there is not a way to run it on lots of smaller machines or a way to dynamically add machines. That is the problem that we have uniquely solved. This is the main idea of elastic scalability - that the system can scale up to provide more capacity on demand," Morris tells 5 Minute Briefing.
