Ariff Kassam, VP of ProductsToday’s customers expect applications to be available and responsive all of the time as well as provide the rich user experience they are used to from modern internet applications. As a result, more organizations are turning to the cloud to enable new customer-facing features and simplify their IT burden. However, making this digital transformation often comes with significant challenges, including migrating in-house applications, databases, and data to the cloud.
“While revamping the existing operations and transitioning to cloud, companies have to be adept in comprehending new programming architectures to take advantage of all that the cloud offers,” says Ariff Kassam, VP of Products, NuoDB.
Even though the cloud provides a gamut of benefits, moving databases or applications to the cloud is rarely a seamless experience. This is where NuoDB can help. “With NuoDB, companies can transition to the cloud faster by reusing existing application code and SQL skills,” Kassam adds.
Based in Cambridge and backed by three former CEOs of the four original relational database companies, NuoDB is a distributed SQL database company that helps enterprise organizations solve the database challenges they face when moving enterprise-grade workloads to the cloud.
Traditional relational databases such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server fail to adapt to the more distributed less predictable, and higher volume workloads found in today’s enterprise. NuoDB’s distributed, continuously available container-native solution ensures that mission-critical SQL dependent applications are capable of maximizing performance at every point of the transition to the cloud.
By providing the flexibility to run in the public cloud, private cloud, and on-premise, NuoDB enables digitally advanced organizations to achieve state-of-the-art cloud architecture, which keeps them a step ahead of their competitors. While supporting critical goals of digital transformation, such as flexibility, scalability, and availability, NuoDB also allows scale-out on demand, saving the considerable investment required when pre-provisioning a traditional relational database. “We are committed to improving the bottom-line of our clients by delivering a patented and distributed approach to database architecture,” adds Kassam.
Many of NuoDB’s customers come to the company to help them respond to requirements for new on-demand services and applications.
We are committed to improving the bottom-line of our customers by allowing them to adjust database size and performance on demand - across data centers or clouds - without sacrificing data integrity, transactional consistency, or the standards-based SQL interface your developers already know
These companies quickly realized that turning trusted on-premises applications into service-based offerings often creates considerable challenges, including application-level changes, new service level agreements (SLAs), new infrastructure costs, and an upside-down cash flow model.
The need to move to the cloud to improve speed, agility and performance improvements is particularly relevant to the banking industry. Today, banks of all sizes around the globe are migrating to the cloud to deliver these essential - and expected - improvements to their end users. To that end, banking software company Temenos announced a partnership with NuoDB last year. Their goal was to give the global banking community next-generation cloud and container-native database technologies that can run the Temenos banking software products.
Max Chuard, Chief Operating & Financial Officer of Temenos, recently commented: “We are continuously investing in the development of our leading digital banking platform and ensuring that our software is built for the cloud. This investment and partnership demonstrates our strong belief in NuoDB’s strategy and technologies for next-generation cloud-based technologies. Our partnership with NuoDB is strategic and strengthens our commitment to ensuring that our banking clients running Temenos software benefit from scale-out simplicity, elasticity, and continuous availability and that they can ultimately maximize the benefits of their shift to the cloud.”
In the coming year, NuoDB is continuing to deliver transformative solutions to aid organizations as they innovate and deliver solutions built for increasing customer demands.
