MongoHQ transforms into Compose
With its expansion beyond MongoDB to include Elasticsearch (beta), MongoHQ has rebranded itself as Compose, which is now said to offer the first fully managed platform to safely and responsibly deploy, host and scale both MongoDB and Elasticsearch. As an open-sourced structured search engine, Elasticsearch can be deployed for a wide range of uses, including user-defined, flexible queries across a range of attributes and full-text search, Compose says.
The company will continue to add databases to its menu of database-as-a-service options. According to the company, each additional new database will increase the ability of developers to build new applications powered by multiple databases, all with one-click production deployments.
Compose further reports it strives to deliver easy and cost-effective ways for developers to host and scale new databases. And, it explains, that unlike platforms that require anticipating how much space is required, Compose asks users to pay only for the data they actually use.
