Challenges With Running MongoDB In The Cloud

We recently caught up with Chris Lalonde, Co-Founder of ObjectRocket, to talk about MongoDB and ObjectRocket’s MongoDB database-as-a-service solution. Here are excerpts from that interview.

There are challenges with running MongoDB in the public cloud. The frustration of performance inconsistencies running web scale databases on generic public cloud servers led Chris and his team to create ObjectRocket, a finely tuned offering for people to run their application’s MongoDB database. Lalonde reminds us that when it comes to operating databases, we need to remember the basic tenets of running them on physical gear and the importance for having an optimized database server set up, rather than using a generic web server.

ObjectRocket fine-tunes hardware to get the highest performance out of MongoDB. Find out how easy it is to get started with ObjectRocket today.
