Rackspace has pushed out a new version of its ObjectRocket for MongoDB databases, designed specifically for compliance-dependent users who need a solution that is secure but also doesn’t compromise on speed and scalability.
Built on a custom, dedicated architecture, Rackspace claims ObjectRocket for MongoDB will power the “most demanding database workloads” and at the same time provide a level of isolation, along with full support. Which is something that businesses are increasingly looking for as Melanie Posey, Research VP, IaaS/Hosting Infrastructure Services at IDC confirms. “Finding and retaining database experts able to navigate the complexities of database technologies such as MySQL, MongoDB, and Hadoop and meeting the enterprise demands of database high availability, scalability, security, and compliance across multiple databases presents a challenge.”
New features of ObjectRocket for MongoDB include:
- Security options including encryption at rest, policy based network access control, role based access control and log management.
- Choice of deployment models with custom, dedicated architectures.
- Suite of developer & automated tools including backend (automated deploying) and customer facing tools.
- Application portability between Rackspace or AWS data centers via AWS Direct Connect with integrated Access Control List (ACL) sync.
“Dedicated ObjectRocket lets applications scale to millions of MongoDB operations per second while providing higher levels of security because it gives customers a fully managed, dedicated rack of MongoDB,” said Chris Lalonde, co-founder of ObjectRocket. “This offering brings together all the features customers have come to expect from ObjectRocket such as a fully isolated environment, encryption at rest and dedicated networking components. On top of all of that, we have a team of experts for MongoDB staffed 24x7, so customers can focus on building their business.”
