Release Notes

Welcome to the latest NuoDB 2.6 Release.

NuoDB 2.6 includes additional scale out capabilities, notable performance optimizations, and expanded migration scenario support in response to customer and market needs. It includes formal support for Active-Active deployments in Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments as well as support for scale out at the storage layer. To further enhance ease of migration for applications and developers familiar with traditional databases, NuoDB 2.6 also includes expanded functionality such as table partitioning and additional SQL compatibility. Finally, to improve ease of operations in the cloud, NuoDB 2.6 now supports automated and online disk space cleanup for the database.

Active-Active deployment across AWS availability zones

Active-Active deployments allow applications to read and write to multiple data centers or availability zones, enabling maximum availability, performance and utilization from data infrastructure. NuoDB 2.6 features support of Active-Active deployment across two AWS availability zones.

Table Partitioning and Storage Groups

Previously offered as a technical preview feature, NuoDB 2.6 fully supports standard SQL table partitioning and storage groups for production use. Table partitions allow applications to separate tables into logical groups of data for data aging use cases and query performance optimizations

Storage groups enable independent elastic scale out at the storage layer while still maintaining a single, logical database view to the application. By placing partitioned data in different storage groups, on different servers, applications can have finer control over data locality and allow applications to support higher throughput volumes of reads and writes.

Expanded SQL capabilities and performance

NuoDB 2.6 offers expanded SQL capabilities, including DDL Triggers, transitional table support, and multi-statement support. This reduces the effort required to port your SQL application from traditional databases to NuoDB or build new cloud applications with your existing SQL skills and expertise. Additionally, NuoDB 2.6 includes query performance improvements aimed at improving overall end user performance.

Improved operational efficiencies

NuoDB 2.6 adds automatic and online disk space cleanup for deleted data. This significantly reduces operational overhead of operating NuoDB in production.
