Red Hat, 10gen Partner to Promote NoSQL MongoDB

Open source software firm Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) and 10gen, creator of the non-relational database MongoDB, have partnered to provide MongoDB across Red Hat offerings such as the Enterprise Linux OS, PaaS OpenShift and JBoss Middleware application.

When Red Hat launched its OpenShift PaaS solution last year, it also began a partnership with 10gen for the first NoSQL database support for OpenShift. This latest move thus broadens, in the two company’s view, the NoSQL collaboration between the firms and enhances their joint Big Data credentials.

Back in January, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) released DynamoDB, a managed NoSQL database designed for large-scale web applications, which Amazon Web Services based in part on its own large-scale online retail technology.

“Web and enterprise developers need solutions that allow them to rapidly deploy applications that deal with large amounts of data in flexible public or private cloud environments,” said Scott Crenshaw, VP of the Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat, in a prepared statement. “Combining Red Hat’s technology stack with 10gen’s MongoDB NoSQL database will help developers to deliver on the promise of Big Data and cloud technologies.”

Red Hat has been in the open source cloud news recently — IBM and Red Hat last week reportedly threw their support behind OpenStack just days after Citrix made a splash by announcing CloudStack’s adoption of Apache Hadoop.

It is not possible to predict which of the two platforms — CloudStack or OpenStack — will come to dominate the open source cloud world, but rest assured, Talkin’ Cloud will be watching.
