There are quite a few new technology cloud companies that have sprung up in the last decade bringing the age of technology storage and memory to another level. Once such company is NuoDB. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts NuoDB was founded in 2008 but was known as NimbusDB. The company patented a system called “elastically scalable database and changed its name to NuoDB in 2011.
While there are many companies that start up as cloud computing databases in the country, there are few that are started and run by the founders who also create the technology needed for the business. Like Apple and Microsoft whose founders, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates both played pivotal roles in the founding and operations of their perspective companies. NuoDB is run with technology created by one of its founders while the other is the operating CEO of the company’s business operations. The two primary founders of NuoDB are Barry S. Morris, who is the company’s CEO, and Jim Starkey who creator and the inventor of the cloud computing technology- the “elastically scalable database”. Over the last 9 years since their inception the company has made its mark on the business world. Recently, both the Boston Business Journal and the Mass High Tech Publication named NuoDB as one of their 2014 Innovation All Stars.
