MongoHQ, a MongoDB hosting solution:
Now, we are excited to announce that we offer high-availability multi-node replica set plans on our MongoHQ platform. We are pretty excited about this release, as it makes available some great features that our users have been asking for, including:
- High availability databases with automatic failover
- Nodes located in multiple availability zones
- Dedicated volumes to maximize read/write performance
- Slave nodes that can be used as read-slaves for enhanced read throughput
If scaling MongoDB with replica sets and auto-sharing is so easy, I’m wondering why it took MongoHQ so long to add support only for replica sets.
