Creating Databases

There are two ways to create a database:

A database is comprised at minimum of one storage manager (SM) and one transaction engine (TE) on one or more hosts in a NuoDB domain. Creating a simple database on a single laptop is the same as creating a database for scale-out across multiple data centers.

The Introduction to NuoDB section explains how to create a single host database and then expand it to a minimally redundant database.

See Creating Your First Database and Upgrading Your First Database to Be Minimally Redundant.

Database options let you specify how many times and how often to retry restarting a process. It is helpful to be familiar with how this feature works before you create a database.
