Fine-Tuned Hardware To Run MongoDB

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Garrett Heath | November 26, 2013 10:00 am

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.

To solve some of the challenges of running MongoDB in the public cloud, Chris and his ObjectRocket[1] team knew they had to look at the hardware layer and engineer it for data performance. At ObjectRocket, not only is each database server-powered with SSD drives, the team went a step further and installed those drives throughout their architecture, including configuration servers and load balancers, to create a highly performant I/O subsystem.

Because your data needs to be available at all times, ObjectRocket provides a three-node replica set in addition to performing regular backups. But it’s not just the gear running the databases that is replicated—the infrastructure is fully redundant throughout the stack to ensure availability.

ObjectRocket fine-tunes hardware to get the highest performance out of MongoDB. Find out how easy it is to get started with ObjectRocket[2] today.
