The MongoDB Database-As-A-Service aims to provide speed, safety and support.

Rackspace, an open cloud company, has launched ObjectRocket, its NoSQL MongoDB Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), in its UK data centre.

With the open source-based MongoDB solution, Rackspace will broaden its portfolio to offer European customers a NoSQL DBaaS for Big Data applications. This offering will be built upon hardware optimised specifically for MongoDB and accessed and integrated into existing systems.

ObjectRocket is a fully managed MongoDB service built with a set of tools and APIs designed to maximise uptime and reduce administration time. It is scalable allowing it to grow with business' needs.

As this offering now comes to the European market, customers will be able to benefit from a service that has been optimised for running MongoDB across all layers of the stack, from the network to the file system and the hardware. Users plug it into ObjectRocket and Rackspace manages all the scaling, sharding and performance of the database itself, freeing developer time to focus 100% on the application itself.

Nigel Beighton, VP of technology at Rackspace International commented on the launch: "Rackspace's work to establish a strong presence within the high-growth NoSQL database market has flourished since our acquisition of ObjectRocket back in February 2013. Bringing this technology to our local European customer base is integral to expanding the total service offering available from our UK data centre. We can now provide MongoDB with low latency, high-bandwidth proximity to our other cloud and hosting solutions".
