SolidFire Announces Partnership With MongoDB

SolidFire's Storage Architecture Complements MongoDB's Scale Out Architecture; Live Webinar "Tuning MongoDB for Next Generation Storage Systems" on November 6th

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - SolidFire, the leader in all-SSD storage systems designed for next generation data centers, today announced an expanded presence in the database market with a partnership with MongoDB. SolidFire's storage solution combines dynamic performance control with simplicity and scalability delivered in a MongoDB environment. SolidFire will deliver a live webinar on November 6 that dives into the benefits and best practices to optimize MongoDB for next generation storage systems.

"The MongoDB ecosystem is expanding rapidly, the scale-out approach to storage from SolidFire is ideal for our users," said Matt Asay, vice president of business development and corporate strategy at MongoDB. "With SolidFire, our customers have additional control over database performance and the ability to adjust storage performance resources on-demand."

While service providers evolve from dedicated hardware models to a shared cloud infrastructure and enterprise customers embrace the next era of big data, optimizing the database for scale and guaranteed performance becomes critical to success. By leveraging solid-state drive technology with concepts like storage virtualization, quality of service and horizontal scaling, SolidFire's next generation storage systems are able to combine the comforts of traditional dedicated storage performance with the simplicity and scalability expected in a MongoDB environment.

"One of the major restrictions in large scale database deployments is lack of infrastructure flexibility imposed by running on dedicated hardware," said Dave Cahill, Director of Strategic Alliances from SolidFire. "With SolidFire, running your databases on dedicated hardware is no longer your only option. MongoDB with SolidFire, delivers new IT efficiencies and operational cost savings along with consistent, repeatable IO performance in a highly scalable, extremely flexible database environment."

Tuning MongoDB for Next Generation Storage Systems Webinar

On Wednesday, November 6th at 11:00am PST / 2:00pm EST / 6:00pm UTC, SolidFire will host with MongoDB, "Tuning MongoDB for Next Generation Storage Systems." Chris Merz, Sr. Database Application Engineer, SolidFire will discuss how to:
