Rackspace and 10gen Team Up to Deliver Cloud Platform Engineered for MongoDB Solutions
At MongoNYC, we announced a strategic partnership with Rackspace to offer a cloud platform engineered specifically for MongoDB. We’re teaming up with Rackspace’s recently acquired Database-as-a-Service, ObjectRocket, to make it easier to develop and scale large MongoDB deployments in the cloud. Through the partnership, we’re looking forward to deepening our relationship with Rackspace on several fronts. We plan to collaborate on sales and marketing initiatives to expand adoption of MongoDB. We’ll work together on technical support for customers, with Rackspace escalating support of customers to 10gen. And we’ll make it easy for 10gen customers to provision ObjectRocket instances from our downloads page. At MongoNYC, the ObjectRocket co-founders Kenny Gorman and Chris Lalonde were interviewed on the partnership, the acquisition by Rackspace and the overall MongoDB and cloud ecosystem. Check out the ObjectRocket blog for a detailed recap of MongoNYC from Kenny.
Invite Your Boss to the Business Track at MongoNYC
MongoDB Days have traditionally been focused on the developer community, with lots of technical talks on application design, deployment best practices, and ops war stories. MongoNYC will carry on the tradition of including many deep technical sessions, with talks from the 10gen staff on the latest features in 2.4, as well as presentations from MongoDB community members on their experiences deploying MongoDB in real-world scenarios. But this year at MongoNYC, we’re introducing a new track aimed at IT managers, directors, and C-level executives who aren’t knee-deep in code. The business track will include case studies from 10gen customers with a focus on the business benefits of using MongoDB, such as reduced cost, new revenue streams and competitive advantaged. We’ll look at the steps enterprises take to adopt NoSQL and open-source technologies, and how you can learn from their experiences. Here are some of the talks included on the business track at MongoDB NYC: Telefonica explains how it reduced development time by over 80% from its previous Oracle implementation, building a rich, globally available user data management system. ADP describes how it built a mobile app in just a few months to let customers view payroll and benefits information on their devices of choice, differentiating ADP from stale on-premise solutions. Criteo shows how it supported 200,000% growth over five years and global expansion to 7 continents migrating away from SQL Server to MongoDB for its core business, improving online shopping by bringing the performance of search to display advertisers. And more. So if you’re a developer or DBA who loves MongoDB, but you’ve only been able to use it for small or side projects, consider inviting your boss to MongoNYC this year. Or, attend the business track and return to the office as an advocate for the business advantages of MongoDB in your enterprise.
