Databases are not getting the love they deserve from Platform-as-a-Service. They are finicky, difficult to write to and notoriously resistant to scale. Not so Mongo. It is easy and it scales. And if managing routers, shards and all those replica gets in the way, PaaS is there to the rescue! This talk shows how we turn Mongo quite literally into a checkbox on Red Hat's newly announced OpenShift Flex platform. We'll look at how users can start with a cost-effective, single-node deployment and then auto-scale to a multi-node setup for high performance when needed, all the while retaining full control over the deployment architecture.
