LOS ANGELES, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FatCloud, the developer of a NoSQL database and application platform for Windows users called FatDB, today announces the release of a white paper for developers and software engineers that proves FatDB is a simpler, faster and less expensive solution to creating apps than traditional .NET development with relational database management systems (RDBMS).
The white paper, entitled "Comparison of Developing a Small Content Management System (CMS) App With and Without FatDB," explores the frequent problems app developers encounter using .NET and SQL server apps, including ensuring sufficient scalability exists to meet ever-changing business demands.
To generate the in-depth report, software engineers spent more than 660 hours comparing the two processes in their entireties including discovery, planning, design, development, testing, deployment and maintenance phases.
The research reveals that when designing and developing an identical app solution on the FatDB platform, any issues involving scalability and fault tolerance were resolved by FatDB. For research purposes the efficiencies of creating a content management system application were tested. However, findings illustrate the software development acceleration FatDB delivers is applicable to any type of scalable app.
Findings also highlighted that using FatDB reduced the total cost of ownership for a small project by 55 percent, compared to using RDBMS. And FatDB delivered a 68 percent reduction in project duration.
"By using real engineers to compare the cost and resource usage of apps, we've provided invaluable information to developers, not only to understand the benefits of our product but to enable them to see the differences between traditional .NET development and FatDB as a NoSQL database and application platform," said Ian Miller, CEO and President at FatCloud.
This white paper is part of a series of tools that will educate developers on the benefits of NoSQL and FatDB products. To view or download the full white paper (PDF) please visit: Comparison of Developing a CMS App With and Without FatDB.
