ObjectRocket Launches Premium MongoDB Cloud Service

Leverages AWS Direct Connect to provide low latency and free bandwidth to AWS customers

PLEASANTON, Calif. -- Jan. 15, 2013 -- ObjectRocket today announced the launch of its easy-to-use, consistently fast and scalable MongoDB database-as-a-service (DBaaS). The solution is backed by ObjectRocket's expert 24x7 customer support.

ObjectRocket built its platform from the ground up – Unlike most MongoDB services built on top of shared infrastructure, ObjectRocket's platform is specifically architected to provide a fast and predictable MongoDB environment. Each instance is backed by pure solid state disk for massive I/O, is inherently sharded and resides on multiple redundant pieces of infrastructure. Databases are replicated and optionally exist in multiple geo-diverse data centers. ObjectRocket also leverages AWS Direct Connect to provide low latency and free bandwidth to AWS Customers.

ObjectRocket provides premium software features – In addition to providing fast and reliable MongoDB hosting, ObjectRocket's added software features offer customers ways to get more value out of their MongoDB environment. ObjectRocket's unique software features include:

· RocketScale – effortless scaling at a moment's notice

· QueryGuard – automatic detection of long running queries

· RocketSecure – added security of encrypted connections and IP-based access control

ObjectRocket's seasoned team delivers 24x7 customer support – The ObjectRocket founding team has more than 50 years of combined experience in scaling large data systems, including MongoDB. They have designed and managed systems that power some of the busiest sites on the web, and played key founding development roles at companies like Shutterfly, PayPal, eBay and AOL. The founding team includes a MongoDB Master, one of 35 core contributors and community evangelists that play a vital role in the adoption, education and advancement of MongoDB.

ObjectRocket brings this easy-to-use, consistently fast and scalable MongoDB solution to the market starting at $29/month/instance. Instances are available now.

"ObjectRocket was built by engineers for engineers," said Chris Lalonde, CEO and co-founder of ObjectRocket. "We knew someone needed to start solving the hard problems of MongoDB as a service so we built the platform that we would want to use. We've wrapped world-class support around this platform, creating an easy-to-use, consistently fast and scalable MongoDB environment."

"ObjectRocket feels like cheating," said Rylan Hazelton, Chief Architect at HitPost. "It has saved us time, staff resources, and money while remaining entirely in the cloud."

"It's great to see a new platform created for MongoDB users come to market, especially given the experience of the ObjectRocket team," said Ed Albanese, Vice President of Business Development at 10gen. "ObjectRocket's promise of ease of use, consistent speed and scalability will be attractive to a significant and fast-growing portion of the MongoDB user base."
