NoSQL Hosting: Redis and RavenDB

More service providers for hosted NoSQL solutions:

  1. Garantia Data to Offer its Redis & Memcached Hosting Services in Europe: “In-memory NoSQL Company extends Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud to European Amazon Web Services users.”
  2. CloudBird Launch, now with RavenDB 2.0 support - The CloudBird Blog: “Today we’re cracking open the Champagne as we peel off the beta label and officially welcome production databases to our RavenDB hosting service. What’s more we’re also introducing support for the Raven 2.0 RTM.”

It’s not anymore just “a database for every taste”, but steadly becoming more of “a database for every taste served from anywhere you like”,

SunGard Hadoop Managed Hosting… What Exactly Is It Offering?

There are so many ways in which Hadoop managed hosting would make sense and be useful for some use case, but a PR-esque post and a web page that do not say what’s in it for the prospective customers is useless.

NoSQL Hosting Services

Michael Hausenblas put together a list of hosted NoSQL solutions including Amazon DynamoDB and SimpleDB, Google App Engine, Riak, Cassandra, CouchDB, MongoDB, Neo4j, and OrientDB. If you go through my posts on NoSQL hosting , you’ll find a couple more.

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.

RavenDB in the Cloud: CloudBird

I’ve missed mentioning the private beta RavenDB hosting service CloudBird in the third wave of hosted and managed NoSQL services. For now, I don’t have any other details about their services. Just an email regform.

A Question About NoSQL Managed Hosting

It’s impossible to always have the right answers to all the questions. So this time I’ll have to ask you all: why only some NoSQL databases are present in managed hosting offers?

The first wave of NoSQL managed hosting services brought MongoDB, CouchDB, and some Redis. The second wave brought some more MongoDB, CouchDB, and just a bit more of Redis. It was only the third wave that brought some managed services for graph databases: Neo4j and OrientDB. Plus the first proposal for Cassandra managed hosting.

The first answer that comes to mind when thinking about NoSQL managed services is adoption. If a product is not in wide use then the chances for a company to run a profitable hosting business are very low. But I have the feeling that this is not the only or the complete answer.

Please chime in and share your thoughts.

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.

10 MongoDB Tips From Engine Yard Data Team

Most of them are just common sense.

Config servers are critical to the health of your cluster.  You MUST have 3 configuration servers in a sharded production environment. NEVER delete their data, always make sure you back them up frequently, and refer to them, if you can, by name using an /etc/hosts file (this will make your cluster more resilient).

Config servers are light processes but they must also live on 64-bit instances. Don’t put all 3 config servers in the same instance!

MongoDB Hosting Matrix

Maurício Maia put together a price comparison for MongoDB hosting:

Additionally there’s also the matrix of MongoDB hosting features. While far from being exhaustive, these MongoDB hosting matrix are meant to give you an idea of what options are out there.

Unfortunately, they don’t include MongoDB hosting on:

Each of these offer a free plan, but the pricing will depend on many factors. On the other hand, they also offer application hosting and that basically means collocating your app and data which is better than putting the whole internet between the two.
