Amazon and MongoDB work together to make sure you can run high performance, production ready MongoDB clusters on EC2.
This white paper will help you understand one of the most popular NoSQL options available with the AWS cloud computing platform—the open source database MongoDB. We provide an overview of general best practices that apply to all major NoSQL options, and we examine important MongoDB implementation characteristics such as performance, durability, and security. We pay particular attention to identifying features that support scalability, high availability, and fault-tolerance.
MongoDB, Amazon Web Services, and EPAM worked together to create a Test Drive, which is a free lab tutorial. The Test Drive is an introduction to MongoDB and teaches users how to quickly launch and interact with a MongoDB replica set on AWS EC2. Try it out here.
You can read more about the Test Drive in the launch blog post.
