According to a new press release, “NuoDB, the distributed SQL database company, today unveiled NuoDB 4.0, featuring expanded cloud-native and cloud-agnostic capabilities with support for Kubernetes Operators and Google Cloud and Azure public clouds. This includes the recently announced Kubernetes Operator to simplify and automate database deployments in Red Hat OpenShift. The Operator leverages NuoDB Admin, a new, simplified management tier that includes a REST API designed to improve database lifecycle management and ensure simple and seamless deployment of NuoDB for cloud and container environments. Also in this release, in addition to supporting Amazon Web Services, NuoDB is now certified for both Azure and Google Cloud Platform, providing customers with a choice of public clouds to deploy NuoDB as well as the option to deploy on-premise or in private clouds.”
The release continues, “In addition to the new REST API, NuoDB Admin includes: (1) Easier database restart by automatically managing the restart order, (2) More granular and simpler client connection load balancing with the use of process labels, (3) Improved diagnostics and domain state metrics. Existing customers will need to migrate to the new Admin API to use the new functionality. For new customers, this functionality is available as the default administration layer. NuoDB 4.0 also includes significant indexing improvements, such as added support for online index creation and expression-based indexes. Online index creation enables customers to create indexes without impacting application availability. Expression-based indexes enable customers to create indexes based on general expression and functions, improving performance for queries using expressions or functions. Finally, 4.0 offers significantly improved index creation performance, up to 50% faster than previous versions of the database.”
