MongoLab now supports Google Cloud Platform!


This week at Google I/O we are launching support for MongoLab's fifth cloud provider - Google Cloud Platform. You can now use MongoLab to provision and manage MongoDB deployments on Google Compute Engine (GCE)!

So far we are very impressed with the capabilities of the GCE infrastructure.  In particular:

  • The network is fast. I mean really fast. Some of the bandwidth and latency benchmark scores are astounding. Since I/O is king for databases this will be great for connecting your GCE-hosted application to a MongoDB instance hosted by MongoLab.

  • GCE has a global private network connecting GCE regions across the world. This will be great for global multi-region clusters. We don't support this quite yet, but when we do GCE will provide a high-speed private backbone upon which to build a great solution.

  • The API is clean, and VMs spin-up fast. This is key for automation, and we like to automate.

For now we are in an early access beta, supporting only our free Sandbox database plans in GCE's us-central1 region. We will be launching support for the rest of our product line in subsequent releases.

We will have a Developer Sandbox (a.k.a "booth") at the conference on Friday May 17th. If you are at Google I/O and into MongoDB come visit us!

    Nice New! Cloud hosting has gained a stronger standing in the cloud computing world thanks to the active participation of enterprises in recent years. The cloud’s success lies in its potential to significantly impact IT costs through direct costs savings, save time in development and deployment, and to save resource allocation overheads.
