MongoDB and Node.js work together well because of their shared reliance on JavaScript. Deploying a Node.js + MongoDB application on Joyent and MongoLab is easy. In this on-demand webinar, we'll explore how to get started running MongoDB using a Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) and the Joyent cloud.

Topics covered on screencast:

  • Running MongoDB in cloud with a DBaaS
  • A demo application using MongoDB's capped collections and a tailable cursor features
  • Leveraging Joyent Cloud's support of WebSockets for high performance messaging
  • Instantiating a Joyent Cloud server and connecting to a MongoLab instance in the same Joyent datacenter.
