MongoDB on Joyent

As a cross-platform document-oriented database system MongoDB combines unprecedented ease of use with blistering speed and superior flexibility to serve the needs of real-time applications.

Joyent has fine-tuned MongoDB to run faster than any other cloud provider. In head-to-head benchmark tests, sharded clusters completed tasks 100% to 150% faster than a comparable MongoDB cluster running on Amazon Web Services. Joyent achieves these results through a purpose built cloud environment based on OS virtualization, advanced caching technology, and faster data retrieval from storage systems.
