We’re fans of Node.js and so we’re happy to be sponsoring the Node Knockout 48-hour hackathon and to be providing two prizes!

We host MongoDB at JoyentCloud with 500MB free plans.  JoyentCloud is where Nodejitsu hosts Node Knockout apps.  If you select JoyentCloud’s us-east-1 (Virgina) datacenter, you’ll have a low latency connection between your Node Knockout app and your database.

Instructions on how to provision a MongoLab server on the JoyentCloud are here.

We’ll have a person on-site at Joyent’s San Francisco headquarters for the kickoff on Nov 9.  As always, we have engineers at support@mongolab.com at the ready to answer questions.

We are offering the winners of the Team category and the Innovation category each a dedicated replica-set cluster with 2 GB RAM for 6 months.  May the best apps win!
