The actions of NuoDB are, in a way, related to biological sciences. DNA in a body is a self-replicating structure that carries all of the characteristics of the body in which it is produced. In other words, DNA is both a mirror of the body, and copier of the body’s features.
The cloud computing and data sharing that NuoDB allows is similar to DNA. Each bit of information that NuoDB sends is called an “atom.” These atoms retain characteristics of the larger data package, but are used as translators with other information senders and receivers. Also like DNA traveling in the suspensions of a cell, NuoDB asynchronous data is transported by the thrust of the data world’s cloud atmosphere. Somehow, in a body, trillions of DNA strands are shifted and assigned different jobs. Amazingly, all DNA is controlled and guided by natural biological mechanisms. The power and uniqueness of NuoDB is that it has the ability to seamlessly and automatically control all the atoms is uses for information transfer. When a person uses a decentralized peer-to-peer database like NuoDB, they are literally working with the building blocks of the technological universe.
