Re: Higher stakes
I need to find out more about this DBMS and how it works. I imagine it is doing some clever things inside.

Re: Higher stakes
I am amazed at how many different DBMS varieties there are in the market, right now, many of them open source, many of them highly specialized, all of them doing things that Oracle, etc., have neglected. It really is incredible, like some Pre-Cambian explostion of species. Can you spell shake-out?

Re: Higher stakes
Yes, Wisco, I found it intersting that this high-performance DBMS is getting applied to what appears to be a mundane app, digital signage. On the other hand, with 5,000 stores, and many signs in each one, it could add up much info and much need for performance. Who knows?

Re: Higher stakes
Yes, Henrisha, there is no doubt Oracle is watching the NewSQL business with great interest, and great trepidation. It will find the right move to make, however, I am sure.  And you're right, the cloud is where it's at. Web-scale applications run in one cloud or another, private or public. It's the only way.

Re: Higher stakes
It will be interesting to see how this product evolves.

I noted that the Autozone (signage) is  engaging it in a non-strategic project (not touching much mission-critical data)--so  this is a baby step.

However, if the company opts to expand use, others will notice.

Re: Higher stakes
Combined with Cloud, no doubt this will create waves of change especially in terms of performance.

It's also about time, too. I'm willing to bet Oracle is still weighing their options and making sure things are ripe for the picking before they make their move.

Re: Higher stakes
I believe you are right about that, RaviN. SQL is a very well understood interface and language and having it combined with cloud-scale performance should make for a killer product. It will be fun to watch. 

Who knows, perhaps we will see Oracle buy up one or two of these companies, either NewSQL or NoSQL, or both. How could that not happen!?

Not alone
NuoDB will have its work cut out for it, given that there are a bunch of other New SQL companies working the same ground as it is. I, for one, will be keeping my eye on the company.

The NewSQL space is becoming more interesting. With an SQL interface and excellent performance to boast, they will be a strong contender to existing DBMS vendors as well as NoSQL databases.
