In the beginning…
ObjectRocket was founded in 2012 in Austin, TX to tackle a serious deficiency in cloud infrastructure – the database. There just weren’t any good options for developers, where the promise of performance and scalability were real.
We used our decades of experience building the systems that power some of the busiest applications and sites on the planet to create a scalable, reliable, and easy to use database architecture. Our unique architecture was designed to seamlessly scale on demand and built to run MongoDB at breakneck speeds with world-class reliability.
We joined the Rackspace family in 2013 and added Elasticsearch and Redis experts to our team to broaden our offering.
By focusing on open source solutions, unparalleled database expertise, and providing the industry’s best cloud database platform, we enable customers to experience levels of data management ease and understanding never before seen.
Database architectures, especially NoSQL databases, pose significant challenges for performance and scalability in the cloud—but our team addresses these challenges head on. Together, our technology and expertise help businesses build better apps, faster.
What we’ve built
ObjectRocket started with a managed MongoDB solution supporting apps hosted on Rackspace, AWS, and Azure. We’ve grown quickly, supporting one of the largest MongoDB workloads in the world. Our platform also supports Elasticsearch and Redis data stores around the globe.
Our new, Kubernetes-based platform aims to provide many more open source databases so that companies can use the right data store for their use case. Our new platform also gives us the ability to get customers’ data as close to their application as possible with cloud options in regions worldwide.
