“We are pleased to work with partners who are pushing our technologies to the limits providing high performance SSD based infrastructures and fully supported MongoDB implementations” -says Luca Olivari, Director of Business Development at MongoDB.

Elastx is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) expert and offers production ready platforms with MongoDB as a standard NoSQL database. Elastx recently became a MongoDB Cloud partner and can now provide full support on the leading NoSQL Database in the Cloud. This means that Elastx customers who are using MongoDB in the cloud platform automatically get access to level 3 support from the same engineers who build MongoDB and still have a single point of contact via Elastx Support.

“We are experiencing that more customers are exploring alternatives to traditional databases. One of the reasons being that they are tired of expensive licences. MongoDB is a popular choice when building modern applications and now Elastx provides full MongoDB support at no extra cost! We also offer a competitive free tier with instant access to our PaaS, so it’s easy to get started”, says Henrik Grankvist, Business Development Manager Elastx

Key platform features are:

  • Easy and powerful, get a full server environment including MongoDB up and running in one minute! You have full control with the easy to use control panel.
  • No Lock-in, meaning no binding contract and no technical lock-ins. We strongly believe in open standards that makes it easy for customers to get started and also to leave us should they want to.
  • You only pay for the actual resources you use! Elastx elastic platform automatically scales and you can have a powerful environment available to handle your peak usage but you only to pay for actual resources used measured by the hour.
  • Elastx goal is to be a great performance choice. The storage platform is pure Solid State Disk (SSD) and with unique technology to guarantee QoS (Quality of Service). This means that Elastx delivers an extremely high level of I/O performance, allowing applications to deliver superior experience to users. This in combination with a powerful network architecture makes Elastx cloud platform ideal for MongoDB hosting.

“MongoDB is by far the most popular NoSQL database option in Jelastic. 11% of Jelastic customers have MongoDB in their applications (and in Sweden the adoption rate is even higher - at 13%!). We are excited that Elastx, together with MongoDB and SolidFire is working with us to make the customer experience even better.”, says Dmitry Sotnikov COO Jelastic

“The recently released performance report from CloudSpectator and Neovise validates the power of running MongoDB on a best of breed hosted PaaS solution with storage infrastructure optimized for predictable performance”, said Dave Cahill, Director of Strategic Alliance, SolidFire. “As a fully supported MongoDB cloud partner, Elastx delivers a superior end-user experience for customers looking to run MongoDB on their cloud platform.”
