10gen Announces Strategic Investment From Intel Capital and Red Hat 
Investment Further Demonstrates the Rapid Growth of the NoSQL Market;
10gen to Use New Funds to Accelerate Technology Innovation for
NEW YORK, NY and PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 --  10gen,
the MongoDB company, today announced that Intel Capital, Intel's
global investment and M&A organization, and Red Hat, the world's
leading provider of open source solutions, have made strategic
investments in the company. 10gen will use the funds to further
invest in product development for MongoDB and to better support its
rapidly growing community and user base worldwide. The funding
agreement marks Intel Capital's first investment in the NoSQL market,
and for Red Hat, expands the technical and go-to-market collaboration
that exists between the two companies. 
"We are pleased to welcome Intel Capital and Red Hat as strategic
investors," said Max Schireson, president of 10gen. "We look forward
to our new relationship with Intel Capital and to collaborating more
closely with Red Hat to better enable and support our joint customers
with integrated solutions and technologies." 
MongoDB bridges the gap between relational database management
systems (RDBMS) and key-value stores -- instead of storing data in
tables and rows, MongoDB stores data in documents with dynamic
schemas. Thousands of organizations of all sizes are using MongoDB
for a range of scenarios including operational intelligence, content
management, product data management, high volume data feeds, user
data management, Hadoop and more.  
Commenting on the investment, Lisa Lambert, vice president of Intel
Capital and managing director of the Software and Services sector,
said: "The NoSQL marketplace has gone through a huge transformation
from a community driven market to running production systems for some
of the world's largest infrastructures. With its agile, scalable
technology, 10gen is uniquely positioned to take advantage of growing
enterprise demand for a high performance data store. We look forward
to collaborating with 10gen and helping accelerate penetration of
MongoDB on Intel Architecture across enterprises worldwide." 
10gen and Red Hat first began collaborating in 2011, with the launch
of Red Hat's
 OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering. In
April 2012, the two companies announced new venues for collaboration
and the joint development of best practices and blueprint reference
designs for deploying MongoDB across Red Hat offerings, including the
Red Hat Enterprise Linux enterprise operating system, OpenShift and
Red Hat JBoss Middleware Solutions. 
According to Ashesh Badani, general manager, Cloud Business Unit and
OpenShift at Red Hat, "Red Hat's investment in 10gen will enable both
companies to accelerate the development and adoption of new
data-powered applications running on agile open source technologies
designed for hybrid cloud and on-premise environments. The
combination of MongoDB and Red Hat technologies, including OpenShift,
Red Hat's Platform-as-a-Service solution, gives developers and IT
professionals the tools they need to deploy next generation
applications in the cloud."
