The software by NuoDB is SQL encrypted serves for distributed deployment in the cloud. It retains characters of old SQL systems while supporting other processing in the cloud system. Other programs communicate with the software the same way they do with the relational database and separate database for transaction reliability. The NuoDB software is different from the others in that it uses a three-tier structure with administrative, transactional and storage structures. This process ensures that the system works without coupling an application and its data on a hard drive which is efficient in the cloud system.
NuoDB database foundation is on a durable distributable cache that utilizes in-memory caches to support cloud style elasticity while providing data objects safety in storage. It uses elements of object-related and message-oriented distributed computing processes principally a peer to peer communication system.
