10gen Announces Commercial Support for MongoDB

MongoDB Project Sponsor Announces Tiered Support Services to Users of the Database

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  10gen, the company that started the MongoDB project, today announced commercial support and training for MongoDB. MongoDB is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database used in production at organizations including Boxed Ice, SourceForge,, GitHub, Business Insider and Disqus.

"MongoDB is a great alternative to traditional relational databases, especially when it comes to scaling today's Web applications. Open source products like MongoDB require an ecosystem of commercial support for mission-critical production deployments," said Dwight Merriman, co-founder and CEO of 10gen. "By providing commercial support and training for users of MongoDB, 10gen is making this widely adopted software more appealing to businesses."

The focus of the MongoDB project is to combine the best traits of the non-relational or "NoSQL" model, including high scalability, performance, and ease of development, with important features common in traditional databases, such as dynamic queries and indexes. 10gen's professional services allow customers to apply these benefits in production environments.

"Since we use MongoDB to handle almost one billion database documents, we are excited that 10gen is offering commercial support for MongoDB and making this scalable, high-performance technology more accessible to businesses," said David Mytton, Founder of Boxed Ice. "Businesses need to feel confident that there is a company like 10gen to stand behind MongoDB in order for this great open source database to become widely used."

10gen support packages come in three levels depending on the specific needs of customers: Basic, Silver and Gold. Plans are priced by server per year. All packages come with unlimited use of 10gen's web-based support system. 10gen also offers monthly MongoDB training sessions, as well as custom training programs and MongoDB consulting services.
