One way for organizations to deal with Big Data challenges is by using a NoSQL database such as the open source MongoDB database. Buoyed by the growing interest in Big Data, the lead commercial sponsor behind MongoDB is establishing relationships aimed at increasing the number of enterprise deployments of MongoDB.
The sponsor, 10gen, last week announced a partnership with enterprise Linux vendor Red Hat in which MongoDB will be certified for use on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 and the companies will provide tools and support for joint customers.
Also last week 10gen said it was partnering with Epam Systems, a software engineering and IT outsourcing provider with development centers in Central and Eastern Europe. Epam's Big Data Competency Center will provide architecture, development, integration and maintenance services for MongoDB.
“Big Data and online channel optimization trends will continue to drive the explosive growth in the use of the non-relational tools,” said Alex Lyashok, vice president, Technology Solutions of Epam Systems. “MongoDB plays a crucial role in this ecosystem, and Epam is aggressively investing in the 10gen relationship. Services we provide to 10gen and our customers help mature the use of the product and ensure the best possible outcome for the clients.”
“10gen is committed to working with Epam across the globe to ensure that MongoDB is available on a variety of clouds and platforms, is well integrated with popular hardware and software, and that a growing number of businesses around the world develop and deploy MongoDB-based solutions," said Ben Sabrin, 10gen's VP of Sales.
