MongoLab offers MongoDB on Google Cloud Platform

This was fast:

This week at Google I/O we are launching support for MongoLab‘s fifth cloud provider – Google Cloud Platform. You can now use MongoLab to provision and manage MongoDB deployments on Google Compute Engine (GCE)!

Good move for MongoLab and good win for MongoDB users. I’ve read a lot of good things about Google’s Cloud Platform.

10gen Signs Partnerships to Strengthen MongoDB Hosting

Leaving aside for a second the aspect of immediate win for 10gen and quite possibly the visible benefits for the end users, I’m wondering if such partnerships (or the lack of them) could be part of the answer to the question why only some NoSQL databases are present in managed hosting offers.

Here’s how MongoLab is introducing this partnership:

MongoLab provides, as always, primary support for operational issues (e.g. password resets, service plan upgrades, maintenance and monitoring) and usage guidance (e.g. index recommendations, schema design).  Starting now, 10gen provides support escalation for code-level database and driver issues, acting as our backstop to provide patches or effective workarounds to issues that can not be solved by configuration or architecture changes.

From my NoSQL market observer position, it looks like a win-win-win situation.

Four Operational Essentials: Rock-Solid MongoDB Hosting

Great slides from mongolab‘s Todd O. Dampier about operating MongoDB:

  1. Stay up => high availability
  2. Stay fast => performance & scale
  3. Take good care of your data => data durability
  4. Always know what’s going on => monitoring & alerting

Whatever database you are planning to use for a busy application, someone that specialized in operating it will give you the best insights. They’ve seen the best and worst of it.

HTML5 App Using Hosted MongoDB Instance via MongoLab REST API: No Time, No Cost, No Data

I needed a free, document based, online data store so that I could quickly build a HTML5 prototype. As an exercise, I quickly whipped up a simple application that can store basic contact details of people. […] Thankfully, with the excellent service provided by developers are able to build nosql document database driven applications in no time and at no cost!

I’m not convinced about the no time and no cost parts, but I’m pretty sure that going this route you’ll end up with no data[1] too.

  1. What I’m referring to is the fact that placing your application key on the client side basically grants anyone access to your data. And considering there’s no collection level ACL that means all operations will go through: updates, deletes, etc.

Node.js + MongoDB = Love

Pair Joyent Cloud’s hosted node.js SmartMachine Appliance with MongoLab’s hosted MongoDB and the integration becomes downright operatic. Angels sing. Trumpets blare. Grey storm thunderheads of object-relational-mapping haze part. Revealed are golden rays of low-impedance JSON object storage and query. All in the fertile green valley of asynchronous JavaScript on the unflappable, cool bedrock of Joyent’s SmartMachine hosting platform. Songbirds tweet. Life is good. Metaphors strain.

All that until you have to debug your code to find a missing var or purely drown under a pile of unmaintainable async Javascript code.
