Data processing platforms do not exist in siloes. That is why it is increasingly important for Rackspace to provide interoperability between datastores. This enables customers to choose the best technology for their data processing needs, without being restricted to a single tool.
Just 13 months after we acquired industrial strength MongoDB Data-as-a-Service ObjectRocket, the service is now available in our Hong Kong data center. This follows the launch of ObjectRocket in the UK earlier this year.
Unstructured data—information without a predefined data model—is expected to swell to four times the amount of structured data by 2020. This growth has made the NoSQL datastore ecosystem thrive, because NoSQL is ideal model for tackling unstructured data.
This week, we hosted a live webinar during which two ObjectRocket by Rackspace customers, Appboy and Untappd, highlighted how they use MongoDB and other data services on the cloud. Full video from the webinar is available below.
MongoDB adoption has exploded in the last few years, making it the leading NoSQL database. This widespread acceptance is largely due to its appeal among developers – MongoDB has many traits that make it the go-to option to rapidly develop applications.
