What Is MongoDB's Architecture Based On?

Eric Knorr interviewed Dwight Merriman for InfoWorld: “10gen CEO: Why we’re the NoSQL leader“.

Q: You created the first widely successful NoSQL document database.What did you base that architecture on?

A: It wasn’t based on anything in particular; it’s a career’s worth of learning what works and what doesn’t. We were looking at cloud computing — at needs for horizontal scalability and how we wanted to write code — and we couldn’t find tools that did what we wanted.

Recently, new MongoDB hosting company ObjectRocket launched with the message: “The Cloud Is Broken for MongoDB“. Was it simply bad PR or someone didn’t get the history of MongoDB right?
