Two Ways to Get Access to the MongoDB Backup Service Limited Release
This week, 10gen announced a limited release of MongoDB Backup Service , our cloud-based backup offering engineered specifically for MongoDB deployments. With MongoDB Backup Service, you can reliably and conveniently backup your cluster, both reducing your operational risk and taking the pain out of doing backups. Over the next few months, the service is available as a limited release and we are approving users who express interest at mms.mongodb.com . However, if you really want to get access to the service there are two ways you can get to the head of the line. 1) Get MongoDB Monitoring Service Running on Your Cluster MongoDB Monitoring Service is 10gen’s free, hosted monitoring service. MMS is a technical requirement for MongoDB Backup Service. During the limited release period, 10gen engineers will be reviewing MMS data to determine who gets access to the backup system to ensure a good experience for all. To learn more about MMS and how to install it on your cluster, sign up for an account at mms.mongodb.com.com and visit our Getting Started docs . 2) Attend MongoDB San Francisco On May 10, 10gen is hosting our annual user conference, MongoDB San Francisco . The conference features 5 tracks of talks on a variety of technical topics, including core concepts in MongoDB, the latest features in 2.4, customer case studies and ecosystem partners. All attendees of MongoDB San Francisco will receive a card with a priority code at the event, putting them at the top of the queue to receive access to MongoDB Backup Service. Register for the event using the discount code “backup” for 25% off, but don't delay -- the conference has sold out the past three years. We hope to see you at MongoDB San Francisco , and we’re looking forward to your feedback on MongoDB Backup Service.
Hack on Ruby and Drupal at MongoSF
After a full day of MongoDB, who doesn’t love a night of hacking? This year at the third annual MongoSF , 10gen engineers, along with members of the MongoDB community, will host hacking sessions for Ruby and Drupal integration with MongoDB. Our Drupal mastermind will be Karoly Negyesi , one of the core maintainers of Drupal who has been supporting MongoDB integration into Drupal’s core platform. Our Ruby session will be supported by Tyler Brock , 10gen engineer and maintainer of the MongoDB Ruby Driver , and Bernerd Schaefer creator and maintainer of Moped , a community-supported MongoDB Driver for Ruby. Our hack sessions will be open to all attendees of MongoSF and will start at the conference’s close at 5PM. Each section will meet and vote on a particular project to work on in the 2.5 hours allotted. Excited? We are too! Get your tickets to MongoSF and let the hacking begin. Have an awesome idea you just can’t keep to yourself? Let us know ! MongoSF will be held on May 4th at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.
