Deploying and managing a datastore in the cloud is not the most pleasant way to spend the afternoon. Databases are difficult to code to and notoriously... resistant to scale. Fortunately, MongoDB provides some silver-lining. Well suited for the cloud, it is easy to learn, adapts to your application and it scales! OpenShift is a free platform-as-a-service that literally turns MongoDB deployments into a check box for Java and PHP apps. Throw auto-scaling, performance monitoring, and log management for your app into the mix and now it's on! In this session you'll learn everything you need to get started with MongoDB in the cloud. Don't have an Amazon EC2 account? No sweat, we've got you covered with 30 hrs of free EC2 time, just come to the session or swing by the booth to get hooked up. Be there or be relational!
