About NuoDB Patent On Elastically Scalable Distributed Databases

Jeff Darcy criticizing the document, not the underlying work of NuoDB’s patent on Elastically Scalable Distributed Database:

Now, how does the described “method and apparatus” actually achieve these goals? Remember, patents are supposed to describe methods, not just outcomes. For example, how does the described system provide consistency for a transaction that spans many objects — i.e. a complex join? They don’t say.

NewSQL NuoDB Patents Elastically Scalable Distributed Database

From the patent filing:

Therefore, it is an object of this invention to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system.

Another object of this invention is to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that is fault tolerant.

Still another object of this invention is to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that has a high degree of availability.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that is platform independent.

Still yet other object of this invention is to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that is atomic, consistent, isolated and durable.

Yet still another object of this invention to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that operates over the Internet without a need for dedicated high-speed communications paths.

Still yet another object of this invention is to provide an elastic, scalable, on-demand, distributed data processing system that provides transaction processing and that is adapted for implementation over a wide geographic area.

As with everything legal or patent-related I have no comments. But reading the above description makes me think that NuoDB might have patented either all distributed databases or a perpetuum mobile of databases.
