Build your own database application with Interoute’s Virtual Data Centre MongoDB Image, a popular open source Database system.
MongoDB is one of the forerunners in the NoSQL movement, an effort to promote non-relational, schema-free data stores. It lacks any table JOINs, which avoids performance bottlenecks seen with traditional SQL servers. It is used by companies of all sizes, across all industries and for a wide variety of applications.
MongoDB is a document database. Documents are stored in collections, and collections are in turn stored in a database. A collection is similar to a table in MySQL (it’s a named group of documents), but a collection lacks any schema.
NoSQL servers are not meant to replace traditional SQL servers. They are meant to handle problems without heavy transactional requirements, but with the potential to massively scale if needed. They work well for providing quick access to large number of documents, serving pages on high-traffic web sites, or delivering streaming media.
Your dedicated Mongo database server comes with 10GB of storage to get you up and running quickly and easily. You can add more storage at any time.
The minimum requirements to run this server are 4 vCPU and 4GB RAM
Note: This is a Development Release (unstable).
