MongoDB on Azure: Boston, Sept. 20

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:

  1. The challenges (and solutions) of hosting MongoDB in Azure, including scalability, management, and client-side accessibility
  2. How to run a standalone MongoDB database instance in an Azure worker role.
  3. How to configure and run a MongoDB replica set spanning several worker roles

For more information about 10gen, visit their company website, or the MongoDB website.

Follow Mark Eisenberg on Twitter.

  1. I see you just became an Azure MVP. I'd like to invite you to some security mvp lists if you are interested?

    My email is if you are interested.
