A NuoDB database is comprised (at minimum) of one Storage Manager (SM) and one Transaction Engine (TE) on one or more hosts in a NuoDB domain. Whether creating a simple database on a single laptop or creating a database for scale-out across multiple data centers, the process is the same.
The steps for creating a minimal database consisting of one SM and one TE are as follows:
Create an archive object
Create a database object
Start an SM on the archive object created in the first step.
Start a TE
Steps 3 and 4 do not require explicit invocation of NuoDB’s
This section provides guidelines on the components of database creation using NuoDB Command. For information on using the REST API, see REST API Reference (NuoDB Admin).
