The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego announced a cloud storage solution based on OpenStack Swift Object Storage:
SDSC’s Cloud Storage provides academic and industry users with a convenient and affordable way to store, share, and archive data, including extremely large data sets. The object based storage system and multiple interface methods make the SDSC Cloud easy to use for the average user, but also provide a flexible, configurable, and expandable solution to meet the needs of more demanding applications.
Check out the project homepage for a short description of this new cloud offering characteristics.

I’ve been posting a lot about deployments in the cloud and especially about deploying MongoDB in the Amazon cloud:
- MongoDB on Amazon EC2 with EBS Volumes
- MongoDB on EC2
- MongoDB in the Amazon Cloud
- Setting Up MongoDB Replica Sets on Amazon EC2
- MongoDB and Amazon: Why EBS?
- Amazon EBS vs SSD: Price, Performance, QoS
- Multi-tenancy and Cloud Storage Performance
In this video Jared Rosoff covers topics like scaling and performance characteristics of running MongoDB in the cloud and he also shares some best practices when using Amazon EC2.
While many will find this new service useful, it is a bit of a disappointement that Amazon took the safe route and went with pure Memcached. The only notable feature of Amazon ElastiCache is automatic failure detection and recovery. But compared with Membase (and the soon to be released Couchbase 2.0) it is missing clustering, replication, support for virtual nodes, etc. Even if advertising a push-button scaling, ElastiCache will lose cached data on adding or removing instances.
The pace at which Amazon is launching new services is indeed impressive. I’m wondering what will be the first NoSQL database that will get official Amazon support.

Max Schireson positions MongoDB as a solution for Big Data and development agility:
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.
