Alfa announces strategic partnership with elastic SQL database provider NuoDB

Posted 02/08/2017

Alfa, the creator of Alfa Systems, the number one software choice for asset finance companies worldwide, has announced a new partnership with influential database company NuoDB, the elastic SQL database company.

This affiliation will bring value to Alfa’s clients in the form of improved availability, better performance, and lower costs.

Tim Gage, Head of Research & Development at Alfa, said: “We’ve optimised Alfa Systems for several database platforms in order to deploy the highly effective solutions our clients currently enjoy. However, 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 licence fees - as much as 90% in some cases - while improving customer satisfaction. What’s more, they’re really nice people to work with.”

Stephen Fahey, Senior Vice President of Sales at NuoDB, said: “As more customers demand service offerings, innovative companies like Alfa understand how critical it is to turn their market-leading products into cloud applications. 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.”

NuoDB’s elastic SQL database is designed to meet the needs of cloud applications without sacrificing the transactional consistency and durability that many applications demand. NuoDB has been recognised in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems for four consecutive years, most recently in October 2016.


Formerly CHP Consulting, Alfa undertook a rebrand in 2016.
