There is a lot of excitement around NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Cassandra. We are designing a database that will supersede them all by combining the best of NoSQL and NewSQL. This will be the key infrastructure that will run tomorrow's cloud-scale applications. Our goal is to do this while providing the enterprise capabilities that Oracle is known for.

The database cloud architecture that we are designing makes a set of globally distributed database shards appear to database clients as a single, highly available and scalable virtual database. This new architecture will optimize the performance of a wide variety of applications through intelligent utilization of globally distributed resources and by transparently routing client work requests to the proper shards.
