TOKYO-October 02, 2014-Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced it will enhance the lineup of IIJ GIO MOGOK Service (MOGOK) from October 2, 2014. MOGOK is a cloud-based Web application development platform and execution environment that uses Ruby on Rails (*1). IIJ will also revise some service prices, and will start a free service sales campaign for new customers on the same day.

(*1) Ruby on Rails: An open-source framework built from the Ruby scripting language for developing Web applications. It was developed to allow for simple Web application development with minimal need for coding.

The new services are as follows:

More file servers added in the execution environment

In Platform as a Service (PaaS)’s execution environments, local file systems can be generally used only for temporarily storing data, and external object storages are required to keep them for a long term. Therefore the existing software needs to be modified when used in the PaaS execution environment.

MOGOK allows for file servers to be used in execution environments. Existing software assets do not need to be modified and applications that require local file systems can be hosted without change. Additionally, file servers can be accessed using WebDAV over the Internet.

PostgreSQL and mongoDB addded to Dedicated DB servers

In addition to MySQL databases, PostgreSQL and mongoDB start to be offered to expand the variety of database which is compatible for Dedicated DB server functioned RDBMS. This allows developers to choose the most suitable database for the application requirements.
Furthermore, all Dedicated DB servers can now use memcached, a standard distributed memory cache system. The memcached function temporarily stores database queries in memory to reduce database overhead and increase the performance of Web applications.
