SQLAuthority Contests – Get 50 Amazon Gift Cards – Experience NuoDB Starlings 1.0.2

SQL is the standard database language. It has been around since the 1970s. ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, and Durable) guarantees that the database tier handles the transaction processing in a consistent and reliable manner, freeing the application from managing these tasks (and freeing you from having to code them into the application), while guaranteeing the integrity of the data in the database.

NuoDB is the world’s first and only patented, elastically-scalable, SQL database built for decentralized computing resources. It is built with a focus on the elastic scalability on the cloud with 100% ACID guarantees and SQL compliance. Another interesting point about this innovative database is that it removes administration tasks like sharding, caching, clustering and performance tuning. It has almost same syntax and interface which is familiar to any other database application.

NuoDB has recently released their a version earlier this month. The product is very robust and has many new enhencements. The recent release has over 75 bugs fixes and improved stability with Amazon S3. The best part is that this database can be installed on pretty much any platform i.e. MacOS, Windows, Amazon EC2 as well on Ubuntu. They have also recently announced availability on the Amazon AWS marketplace.

In 1948, he moved to New York to work for IBM as a mathematical programmer. In 1953, angered by Senator Joseph McCarthy, Codd moved to Ottawa, Canada. A decade later he returned to the U.S. and received his doctorate in computer science from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

  41. Edgar F. Codd was a British computer scientist who is credited with formulating the relational model for database management that became the basis for relational database management systems.

    He added other important theories to computer science, but the relational model, a very important universal theory of data management, is considered his most important achievement. Between 1960 and 1980 he devised his theories of data arrangement, resulting in his paper A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks in 1970, one year after he published a paper inside IBM.

  42. Edgar F. Codd was an computer scientist who invented the relational model for data management with rules in order by condition

  43. Codd received a PhD in 1965 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.[3] His thesis was about self-replication in cellular automata, extending on work of von Neumann and showing that a set of eight states was sufficient for universal computation and construction.[6] His design for a self-replicating computer was only implemented in 2010.

    In the 1960s and 1970s he worked out his theories of data arrangement, issuing his paper “A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks” [link] in 1970, after an internal IBM paper one year earlier.[7] To his disappointment, IBM proved slow to exploit his suggestions until commercial rivals started implementing them.
