A few months ago, I had the pleasure of working with the folks at 10gen to explore the feasibility of running their MongoDB document-centric database on the Azure platform.
I had planned on presenting this in Boston today at the MongoDB Conference. In my place, Microsoft's Mark Eisenberg will be presenting MongoDB on Azure.
I will be posting a short series on this as well, including:
- The challenges (and solutions) of hosting MongoDB in Azure, including scalability, management, and client-side accessibility
- How to run a standalone MongoDB database instance in an Azure worker role.
- How to configure and run a MongoDB replica set spanning several worker roles
