Annual losses of $ 90 million and an IPO of $ 100 million? That's desperation.
Recently heard from an AWS rep and they said they have no interest in MongoDB, if you want it then fire up some of our VMs and run it off your bat, we're not interested.
It's been a rough week, so thanks for the laugh, MongoDB!
I'm just waiting for MongoDB to go tits up and get snapped up by Oracle, Microsoft or Amazon. They don't seem to have much of a business model. It's a shame though, the product is really good. I guess they could go the other way and transition to a community-driven open source project, but I don't hold out much hope of that.
But Mongo DB is Web Scale!
They need to change their name...
MongoDB is a horrible name with awful connotations. Why the hell are they still using it? Until hey change it, they can piss right off, the insensitive bastards.
Mostly, I'd like a new name (what were they thinking?), a 'create database' operation (confidence-building), and some sort of explanation of the security model.
