NuoDB Re-Writes the Rules for a 21st Century Database and Issues Challenge to Competitors

Company Backs Rules Up With YCSB Benchmark of 1 Million Transactions per Second and Independent Validation From AMD

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 15, 2013) - NuoDB, Inc., a startup offering the industry's only patented, elastically scalable Cloud Data Management System (CDMS), today announced the general availability of their 21st century database, NuoDB Starlings. The Starlings release is supported by a wide range of independent validation, including:

  • A YCSB industry standard report documenting the ability of the NuoDB solution to scale to 1 million transactions per second on commodity hardware. The benchmark results will also be presented in a live-streamed demonstration at the NuoDB launch event.

  • A benchmark from AMD performed on the AMD SeaMicro SM15000™ server. The SM 15000 links 512 Opteron cores with a 1.28 Tbps bandwidth fabric, and supports 5 petabytes of storage and 160 Gbps of networking I/O in a single 10 RU system.

  • The support of 12 New Rules For A Cloud Data Management System.

Summary of YCSB Benchmark Report
NuoDB's YCSB performance results were achieved against a single logical NuoDB database distributed across several host machines.

  • NuoDB delivered extremely high performance by exceeding 1 million transactions per second on 24 nodes.
  • The benchmark results demonstrate that NuoDB is the most cost efficient elastic cloud database offering in the market.
  • The full report can be downloaded here.

Supporting quotes
"NuoDB takes an interesting approach to networked database management," said Curt Monash, president of Monash Research and editor of DBMS 2. "Both the tiering and the optimistic execution make a lot of sense."

"NuoDB's performance far exceeded our expectations. We achieved well over 1 million transactions per second on our ultra-dense, energy-efficient SeaMicro SM 15000 server. AMD looks forward to partnering with NuoDB to build an ecosystem of exceptionally efficient database computing," stated Andrew Feldman, General Manager and Corporate VP, Data Center Solutions, AMD.

NuoDB CDMS Challenge
"We have proven, and AMD has documented independently, the elastic scalability and performance required from a cloud database," stated Barry Morris, CEO and Co-Founder of NuoDB.

"While elastic scale and 1 million TPS performance are critical, a CDMS must also offer the asynchronous, peer-to-peer attributes that are inherent to the cloud itself. We have stepped back and thought deeply about what database management requirements will be over the next 10 years, and the 12 Rules of a CDMS reflect that analysis. We welcome industry discussion on whether the 12 Rules are complete and accurate as a definition of a 21st century cloud database," continued Morris.

"We urge developers and chief architects to download our benchmark report. They will find it is not difficult to reproduce the benchmark and achieve 1 million TPS in their own testing," he concluded.
