San Francisco - (October 16, 2012) - Joyent, the high-performance cloud company, and 10gen (the MongoDB company) today announced product/technology enhancements to increase performance, flexibility and scalability. The two companies also joined together with leading technology experts MongoLab, Nodejitsu and Clock to create NodeStack Online -- a unique web conference series to explore development stack that combines the benefits and power of Node.js, MongoDB and SmartOS.
The partnership brings together Joyent’s high-performance virtual operating system, SmartOS, with 10gen’s agile and scalable NoSQL database, MongoDB – providing developers and enterprises the tools they need to keep pace with increasingly sophisticated applications. MongoDB has been optimized on a Joyent SmartOS Machine to provide flexibility, ease of use and high performance; it can also be deployed on the Joyent Public Cloud with a single click.
"SmartOS provides an excellent platform for running MongoDB,” said Jared Rosoff, director of product marketing at 10gen. “With its strong history of performance and reliability, along with tools like ZFS and DTrace, SmartOS offers MongoDB users consistently fast performance, non-stop availability, and unparalleled visibility into system behavior."
The 10gen and Joyent partnership benefits include:
“Today’s sophisticated applications are more resource-intensive than ever, and they’re being developed faster than development tools can keep up,” said Jason Hoffman, founder and CTO, Joyent. “By bringing together MongoDB with SmartOS and Node.js, we’ve created the most robust, scalable and reliable end-to-end solution on the market, helping developers keep pace with the rapidly evolving and complex demands of today’s applications.”
The inaugural NodeStack Online session will take place on October 17, 2012. Please join us - http://www.nodestack.org/
