We’re excited to partner with Overdriver, a unique Platform-as-a-Service for gaming that is showcasing their beta service for the first time at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC)!

This exciting partnership means that MongoLab will serve as the core data storage provider for Overdriver’s online game developer community. You can find out more right here.

By marrying dynamic cloud scaling with gaming-specific tooling for features like virtual goods and social functionality, Overdriver addresses the biggest demand issue that game studios face: bringing titles to market quickly but with little operational risk.

MongoDB naturally supports the object-oriented information model in games, capturing concepts such as user characters, possessions, game pieces, and state of play. MongoLab’s robust and performant MongoDB-as-a-Service lets Overdriver game developers give their full attention to designing compelling games.

We are fascinated by Overdriver and honored to be an inaugural partner in their ground-breaking specialized PaaS approach.

If you’re in San Francisco this week stop by their booth, #1838, at GDC and meet the Overdriver team. Also, be sure to sign up for an account at Overdriver.com. FYI, creating a new environment at Overdriver automatically creates a new MongoLab account and database.

We can’t wait to play with what you build!
