Asset finance software provider Alfa has partnered with NuoDB, a database company, in a move which Alfa says could reduce database license fees for their clients.

Tim Gage, head of research and development at Alfa, said: “NuoDB brings a number of advantages: true active-active deployment, elastic scalability and exceptional performance.

“It could also save our clients considerable sums in database license fees while improving customer satisfaction.”

NuoDB developed the ‘elastic SQL database’, which can be used by cloud applications. The company is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has offices in London and Belfast.

Stephen Fahey, senior vice president of sales at NuoDB, said: “This partnership helps ensure that Alfa can preserve all the functionality and performance its customers expect from its outstanding technology, while lowering costs and building on a platform that will support future growth.”
