The “atoms” that are featured in NuoDB comes from the different data elements being broken down into smaller parts. In return, NuoDB offers cloud database technology that combines cloud like elasticity with a long-lasting apportioned storage space, which features an arrangement of “in-memory” caches. These in-memory caches provide the support to the cloud like elasticity that makes NuoDB cloud practical application so unique. Security is not compromised, this process also ensures that all the data is taken care of and stored risk-free.
Other added bonuses are the message and objective oriented, which means the end result is a communication format that is not coexisting.
A bonus to this cloud like technology is the multiple version concurrency control better known as MVCC it uses. This zone in on the data and detects it to repair problems immediately.

Jim Starkey was the original head architect and is a renowned database veteran and has since retired in 2012.
