ObjectRocket launches MongoDB cloud service
ObjectRocket launched its fast and scalable MongoDB database-as-a-service (DBaaS). The platform is specifically architected to provide a fast and predictable MongoDB environment. Each instance is backed by pure solid state disk for massive I/O, is inherently sharded and resides on multiple redundant pieces of infrastructure.
Databases are replicated and optionally exist in multiple geo-diverse data centers. ObjectRocket also leverages AWS Direct Connect to provide low latency and free bandwidth to AWS Customers.
RocketScale – Effortless scaling at a moment’s notice.
QueryGuard – Automatic detection of long running queries.
RocketSecure – Added security of encrypted connections and IP-based access control.
“ObjectRocket was built by engineers for engineers,” said Chris Lalonde , CEO and co-founder of ObjectRocket. “We knew someone needed to start solving the hard problems of MongoDB as a service, so we built the platform that we would want to use. We’ve wrapped world-class support around this platform, creating an easy-to-use, consistently fast and scalable MongoDB environment.”
The ObjectRocket founding team has more than 50 years of combined experience in scaling large data systems, including MongoDB. They have designed and managed systems that power some of the busiest sites on the web, and played key founding development roles at companies like Shutterfly, PayPal, eBay and AOL. The founding team includes a MongoDB Master, one of 35 core contributors and community evangelists that play a vital role in the adoption, education and advancement of MongoDB.
