Hosted and Managed NoSQL: Cassandra, Redis, OrientDB

In the last few days I’ve read about some new NoSQL hosting solutions:

  • Cassandra: managed hardware & software hosting:

    Per node:

    • Intel Dual Quad-core (8 cpu’s), 16gb of memory, 2tb primary storage + 500gb commitlog drive
    • 5 public ip addresses, 1000Mbps private network port.
    • Debian, CentOS, RedHat or FreeBSD
    • Cassandra setup, configuration and ongoing maintenance (repairs, cleanups, troubleshooting)
    • Cassandra upgrades (rolling restart)
    • 24x7 real-time monitoring (load, tcp, jmx and cassandra logs)
    • Multi-datacenter environment (we’ll spread your cluster across two or three geographic locations, based on your needs)
    • 30 days test drive

    Cost: $850/monthly per node (5tb bandwidth, includes backups & monitoring)

  • OrientDB: NuvolaBase

    • Real-time replicated deployment
    • Managed
    • JSON over HTTP access
    • can offer VPN connections to the cluster
  • Redis: Cloudnode

    • is still in beta
    • “one Redis instance free with every Cloudnode account”, but no further details about the characteristicts of the instance

Hosting for NoSQL databases has been available in some form or another for a while, but only for the most popular ones (MongoDB, CouchDB, Redis). Things are changing fast. Neo4j is advertising heavily the Heroku add-on, OrientDB got NuvolaBase, and so on.

This is the market that Amazon is targeting with Amazon RDS, SimpleDB, and DynamoDB: the managed data services and that as part of a bigger strategy. What should be clear is that Amazon is not after NoSQL database companies.

Anyone considering a business in the managed data services market should realize that Amazon will not get into supporting all the NoSQL databases out there. They’d also better take a deep look and learn from what Amazon is offering with SimpleDB and DynamoDB.
