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.

    Edgar Frank “Ted” Codd (August 23, 1923 – April 18, 2003) was an English computer scientist who, while working for IBM, invented the relational model for database management, the theoretical basis for relational databases. He made other valuable contributions to computer science, but the relational model, a very influential general theory of data management, remains his most mentioned achievement.
