Today in Cloud

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Server Beach’s hosted MongoDB servers represent the first commercially hosted NoSQL database option. (Better yet, they’re free.) Rackspace is notably working with the NoSQL community, and I expect AWS is, too, but neither has rolled out NoSQL instances as a standard option. It’s somewhat shocking, actually, considering that traditional hosting firms are supposed to be playing catch-up with cloud providers in terms of cutting-edge tools, not the other way around. However, I suspect that we’ll see a mainstream cloud provider offering a NoSQL option relatively soon.
