Guardtime and NuoDB both focus their product strategies on innovative technology to eliminate impediments to the growing trend of distributing data on a global scale. As geo-distributed deployments grow, and begin to dominate the IT landscape, data management becomes very complex. This situation is further exacerbated by the accelerating adoption of cloud computing with its "deploy anywhere" nature.
Both companies boast multiple patents for their unique intellectual property and are at the forefront of eliminating the operational nightmare presently associated with globally distributed data.
The Guardtime and NuoDB alliance has already identified the most immediate technical blockers to simplifying data management on a worldwide scale. The two companies will be working together to simplify the following challenges:
- Maintenance of a global auto log
- Key management, specific multiple keys in multiple geographies.
"Guardtime's Keyless Signature Infrastructure and solutions protect an enterprise's most precious commodity – its data and intellectual property," stated Matthew Johnson, Guardtime CTO. "Combining Guardtime's keyless security infrastructure expertise with NuoDB's deep experience in the global distribution of data is sure to improve and simplify global application deployments in the cloud or the datacenter".
"With an escalating need to manage globally-distributed data among our enterprise and software vendor customers, NuoDB is proactively addressing the range of complex, technical challenges inherent to scale and crossing geographic boundaries" stated Seth Proctor, NuoDB CTO.
"The recent selection of Guardtime as the KSI vendor for the Ericsson cloud underscores the depth of practical ability their technologies bring to simplifying and enabling secure, geo-distributed deployment," concluded Proctor.
NuoDB was launched in 2010 by industry-renowned database architect Jim Starkey and accomplished software CEO Barry Morris to deliver a webscale distributed database management system specifically designed for the cloud and the modern datacenter.
Used by thousands of developers worldwide, NuoDB's customers include automotive after-market giant AutoZone, Europe's second largest ISV, Dassault Systèmes, Zombie Studios and many other innovative organizations. NuoDB was one of only nineteen vendors cited on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational DBMS.
