NuoDB Leaves its Mark as Database Innovator

NuoDB is a rapidly expanding database company that employs SQL principles. Based in Cambridge, Mass., NuoDB is today devoted to tackling the issues and difficulties related to cloud computing on the global stage.
NuoDB was founded in 2008 through the efforts of Jim Starkey, the famed database innovator, and software executive Barry Morris. It adopted its present name three years later. Its senior management team is comprised of a number of former executives from such firms as BroadVision, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Microsoft, Oracle and Veracode.
The underlying goal of the company was the development of a database that is based on but goes beyond traditional SQL database principles. Its patent for an “elastically scalable” database was awarded in 2012, only 15 months after being sought. The company is today devoted to providing a database that is simple and always available.
Through the assistance of other firms, among them Dassault Systemes and Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, NuoDB was able to boost its funding to nearly $60 million in 2016. Only two years earlier, the company was named as an Innovation All-Star by both the Boston Business Journal and the publication Mass High Tech.
