Customers get a faster and more responsive application. You also save money by removing the complexity and cost associated with add-on software or infrastructure that is not used for disaster recovery.
NuoDB stated that its active-active offering is unique in that it does not require additional software. The company stated that it supports read and write access from multiple hosts while maintaining ACID compliance.
The new edition includes table partitioning and distributed storage, which allows for greater scalability and better performance. It also offers improved SQL compatibility. More technical details can be found here.
