Your business is growing; can your database support it?
Databases are a critical part of any application, and their performance, scalability and availability matter. But the day-to-day management of databases can be painful and time consuming, and any misstep in configuring, managing and maintaining them can result in lack-luster performance, upset end users and sleepless nights for you and your IT staff.
Simply put: databases can make or break a business.
Join Rackspace experts at 11 a.m. CDT Thursday, August 22, for a free webinar on how adopting MongoDB and a hybrid cloud infrastructure can help boost your business' performance. In this discussion, Rackspace CTO John Engates and Senior Director of Product Chris Lalonde, who is also a co-founder of ObjectRocket, which Rackspace acquired in February, will highlight the importance of a properly deployed, purpose-built database architecture and the need to scale strategies to manage user growth. You'll learn how to avoid the day-to-day pitfalls of the day-to-day management and deployment of modern databases.
They'll discuss how MongoDB is seeing widespread adoption by developers because it is super easy to get started and to use, and it boosts productivity. It also removes the barrier of configuring, managing and maintaining these systems and allows developers to focus on building applications, not databases.
