The ObjectRocket engineering team has been busy building our latest high performance data platform for taking full advantage of the new MongoDB 3.0 feature improvements. As with any major version upgrade, we suggest that you begin testing with MongoDB 3.0 prior to going straight into production and reach out to us with any questions.
As simple as Redis is designed to be, the complexity that Redis users face can get very real, very quickly. One of our mantras at ObjectRocket is to stay out of the way of Redis to allow it to perform and provide customers flexible tools to manage their instances. We are proud to announce the release of the Instance Resize feature. We built this feature to allow customers the ability to resize their instance(s) when it is best for them. A customer's memory needs for their Redis instance(s) is not always constant given their use-case. Whether customers are seeing spikes in traffic or have more permanent Redis size requirements, they need an easy and efficient way to resize their instances based upon their timeline.
Yesterday, June 4th, a Redis release was done to fix a Lua vulnerability which gave those with access to a Redis server the ability to break out of Redis and run arbitrary code. Read on to learn why your ObjectRocket Redis instances are not at risk and details on the vulnerability itself.
Instead of a social life, us engineers down in ops have been working on some new things. The latest and greatest of which is something we are calling ObjectRocket Dedicated MongoDB. We're talking about full cabinets of dedicated hardware, fine-tuned to work specifically with MongoDB to be as fast as possible, for a single customer, and they are ready to take off.
When a company's customers, employees, and partners can access data easily through a user-friendly system, they have two people to thank for it: a database administrator and a data architect. Ensuring that well-built databases function reliably and securely for potentially thousands or even millions of users is a major responsibility, and companies in every industry rely on data architects and DBAs to design and monitor data networks that meet the needs of all who use them.
Redis is hot in the tech community right now. It's come a long way from being a small personal project from Antirez, to being an industry standard for in memory data storage. With that comes a set of best practices that most people can agree upon for using Redis properly. Below we'll explore 10 quick tips on using Redis correctly.
Redis Sentinel provides a simple and automatic high availability (HA) solution for Redis. If you’re familiar with how MongoDB elections work, this isn’t too far off. To start, you have a given master replicating to N number of slaves. From there, you have Sentinel daemons running, be it on your application servers or on the servers Redis is running on. These keep track of the master’s health.
