MongoHQ is preparing to span the globe and, like all domination plans, it begins with Europe.
We have for quite some time dedicated plans in Europe on a limited basis. MongoHQ has just launched replica set plans to the European West AWS datacenter, by adding an
eu-west-1 (Ireland) option. If this is successful, we aim to offer this datacenter option to our other shared plans. (Of course, we’ll host custom deployments anywhere in the world you wish–so there’s never a need to wait if your data needs are big enough.)
If you have concerns about a US company hosting European data–we have recently become EU and Swiss Safeharbor certified self-complient with the US Department of Commerce. In short, it is a certified commitment to adhere to European laws of data privacy as outlined by European, Swiss, and United States treaties.
Finally, MongoHQ is going on a quick European tour (of sorts) in late April. The current plans are meeting the London MongoDB Group on April 17, Railsberry in Krakow Poland April 19-20, and leaving the EU on April 23. Come meet up in London or Poland (or maybe a third location? We have nothing planned on 21-22, and have been known to travel great distances for beer).
