CloudBees Announces MongoHQ Partnership, Extends Powerful MongoDB Technology to the CloudBees Platform

Developers Can Now Easily Create and Configure MongoDB Databases within CloudBees' Platform as a Service (PaaS) to Further Streamline Productivity

Woburn, MA. - August 22, 2011 - CloudBees, Inc. , the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced a partnership with MongoHQ, the leading provider of cloud-based MongoDB data hosting and services. The partnership adds the MongoDB solution to the CloudBees partner ecosystem. With MongoDB, developers can more efficiently build and scale their data layers. Integration with the CloudBees platform will be available October 1.

CloudBees provides the only develop-to-deploy cloud platform for Java and serves thousands of customers. It provides everything developers need to quickly and easily develop and deploy applications in the cloud -- without having to purchase, configure and maintain hardware, and without having to program applications for a specific underlying infrastructure service (IaaS). The CloudBees platform includes a growing partner ecosystem that allows users to add optional services to expand the platform.

By adding MongoHQ to its ecosystem, CloudBees enables users to quickly create and extend a MongoDB-based data layer to their various staging and production applications. With sizes ranging from the experimental sandbox to full replica set to custom MongoDB deployments, CloudBees customers can take full advantage of all the features that MongoHQ offers via its fast cloud data platform. Developers will have full access to all the benefits of MongoHQ, including web tools for managing their data, performance analytics, scaling and 24/7 monitoring of the data layer.

The MongoHQ cloud database will be available on the CloudBees' ecosystem at the following service levels:

  • Sandbox (free) : Optional automated backups and 16MB of data

  • Small ($15/month) : Dedicated MongoDB instance; 2GB of data; optional automated backups; 24/7 monitoring and query logs

  • Large ($49/month) : Dedicated MongoDB instance; 5GB base storage ($1/GB/month extra); optional automated backups; 24/7 monitoring; query logs; performance statistics and graphing

  • Replica Set Extra Large ($300/month) : Dedicated MongoDB instance; multi-availability zone replica set; dedicated EBS volumes; 20GB base storage ($1.50/GB/month extra); optional automated backups; 24/7 monitoring; query logs and performance statistics and graphing

The MongoHQ partnership comes on the heels of CloudBees' June 2011 announcement of its partner ecosystem, which launched the industry's first one-stop shop for Java application development and deployment. CloudBees is continuing to extend its partner ecosystem by bringing in additional third-party providers; companies interested in partnering with CloudBees should send an email to . Anyone can try out the CloudBees platform - and many of the partner services - for free.

"We're thrilled to be adding MongoHQ to the CloudBees partner ecosystem," said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees. "Since launching our partner ecosystem, we've seen an extremely positive reaction from our developer community. Our customers appreciate the opportunity to easily add additional services to the CloudBees platform, all in a one-stop shop environment. We welcome the addition of MongoHQ to our partner ecosystem."

"When we created MongoHQ, our primary goal was to make it easy for developers to use MongoDB as the data layer for their applications, allowing them to focus on their code instead of the complexities of managing their data layer in the cloud," said Jason McCay, MongoHQ CEO. "CloudBees shares this same core belief and has pioneered it within the Java community. We are excited to partner and offer MongoDB on this fast-growing and powerful platform."
