Overview of Using the Automation Console

The NuoDB Automation Console is the management tool for NuoDB domains and databases. The Automation Console lets you create databases, manage their operation, monitor performance and view metrics as well as other statistics. NuoDB uses built-in templates to start and scale databases on one or more hosts.

Templates are Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that define attributes and rules for NuoDB domains. Four templates are supplied: single host database, minimally redundant database, multi-host database, and geo-distributed deployment. Collectively, these templates can be used for almost all database requirements. Each template is customizable.

This topic provides an overview of the main capabilities of the Automation Console. The Automation Console is written entirely against the REST API.
