Database-as-a-service provider MongoHQ announced that it has partnered with Open Data Services leader GoGrid to deliver its fully-managed platform to host and scale MongoDB databases through GoGrid’s 1-Button Deploy™ solution. The partnership will enable developers to run multiple big data evaluations on demand, fast and with a minimum investment of time or resources, and make it simple for developers, systems administrators and IT pros to retain control of their data in the cloud.
Databases such as MongoDB, are vital in today’s business climate, and frequently require expertise and resources that place its benefits beyond the reach of many companies,” said Heather McKelvey, CTO and SVP Engineering at GoGrid. “Partnering with MongoHQ will offer developers an incredibly simple and cost-effective way to deploy MongoDB at the click of a button, while avoiding the pitfalls that come with a new database deployment.”
Load balanced performance and network redundancy
MongoHQ’s elastic deployments on GoGrid deliver f5 hardware load balancing for application servers, cross-network redundancy and SSD performance through an easy-to-use user interface. This will offer organizations the ability to leverage the advantages of MongoHQ’s managed, scalable MongoDB DBaaS, while meeting the demands of systems that require balanced performance and high availability. Additionally, it will offer the ability to take applications to production simply and securely with elastic pricing, which offers the most cost-effective way to deploy MongoDB databases.
MongoHQ makes best-practice MongoDB available instantly in the same data center as your application, built to scale with consistent performance for any requirement, with a real-time monitoring dashboard, multi-redundant infrastructure, and a console-like experience on the web. The partnership with GoGrid offers a new level of reassurance to developers, delivering elastic deployments of MongoDB through an experienced provider that is trusted by more than 15,000 companies to run their infrastructure and databases and called “Cloud’s Big Data Specialist” by InformationWeek.
At MongoHQ we want to give developers flexibility to use our DBaaS platform wherever they want. Top companies as well as start-ups are building their applications on GoGrid so it makes sense to include them as a new provider. We’re really happy to have them onboard as a partner supporting our Elastic Deployments” said Kurt Mackey, CEO, MongoHQ.
Delivering flexible, cloud-based data infrastructure quickly and cost-effectively
GoGrid — which dramatically simplifies the process of moving Big Data applications from trial to full-scale production and reduces it from weeks to mere minutes — automatically orchestrates deployment of a multi-server Big Data cluster across virtual servers. This approach saves money, supplies a purpose-built infrastructure, automates deployment of best-of-breed Big Data technologies, and simplifies evaluation and proof of concept (POC).
Unlike platforms that require you to anticipate how much space you’ll require, MongoHQ asks users to pay only for the data they actually use. Starting at $18/GB per month, MongoHQ’s Elastic Deployments:
● Scale automatically, growing as your data grows
● Provide automatic daily backups
● Are automatically equipped with the most recently updated MongoDB features
● Let you choose where you host your data
● Let you pay only for the data you use
