Today, Red Hat and 10gen jointly announced a deeper collaboration around MongoDB. By combining Red Hat’s traditional strengths in operating systems and middleware with 10gen’s expertise in database technology, we’re developing a robust open source platform on which to develop and deploy your next generation of applications either in your own data centers or in the cloud.
Over the next several months, we’ll be working closely with Red Hat to optimize and integrate MongoDB with a number of Red Hat products. You can look at this effort resulting in a set of reference designs, solutions, packages and documentation for deploying high-performance, scalable and secure applications with MongoDB and Red Hat software. Our first collaboration is around a blueprint for deploying MongoDB on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which we will release shortly. We’ll follow that up with a number of additional projects around RHEL, JBoss, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV), Cloud Forms, Red Hat Storage (GlusterFS), and of course continue the work we have started with OpenShift. We hope to get much involvement from the Red Hat and MongoDB communities, and any enhancements to MongoDB resulting from this work will, of course, be open sourced.
Whether you are just getting your feet wet with MongoDB and Red Hat products, or are an old hand, you can look to 10gen and Red Hat to help ensure that your next generation applications are architected on a solid open source foundation.
