New Release: Empower Developers with Oracle NoSQL Database 3.0

In April 2014, Oracle announced the availability of Oracle NoSQL Database 3.0, the latest version of Oracle's distributed key-value database for building high-performance, next-generation applications.

"This release confirms our commitment to providing the industry's most comprehensive solutions for evolving enterprise data management, including NoSQL," says Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Database Server Technologies, Oracle.

Enhancements in the latest release empower developers by providing

  • Increased security. Attain greater protection from unauthorized access to sensitive data with operating-system-independent, clusterwide, password-based user authentication and Oracle Wallet Manager integration. Increase protection against network intrusion with session-level secure socket layer encryption and network port restrictions.
  • Enhanced usability and ease of development. Simplify application design with support for tabular data models. Enable seamless integration with familiar SQL-based applications. And dramatically improve query performance with secondary indexing.
  • Data center performance enhancements. Enable greater business continuity for applications with automatic failover to metro-area secondary data centers. Improve workload management by using secondary server zones to offload read-only workloads such as analytics, report generation, and data exchange.

"This release adds compelling value for developers and IT, such as security and data center monitoring enhancements that are critical for enterprise deployment," says Alok Pareek, founder and executive vice president, WebAction.

"We are particularly excited about the secondary indexes and table functionality, and how this will provide significant productivity and performance gains," says James Anthony, technology director, e-DBA.

About Oracle NoSQL Database
With Oracle NoSQL Database, data is stored as key-value pairs, which are written to particular storage node nodes based on the hashed value of the primary key. Storage nodes are replicated to ensure both optimal load balancing of queries and rapid, high-availability failover in the event of a node failure.

Customer applications are written using an easy-to-use Java/C application programming interface. And an Oracle NoSQL driver links with the customer application, providing access to the data via the appropriate storage node for the requested key.
