Every blog needs a first post. So I figured it's probably a good idea to get it out of the way quickly.
As per data handling, I could've chosen the easy path and continued using Azure since there's already an Azure SDK for NodeJS, but as I mentioned earlier, I wanted to try something completely new, and I already had my eyes on Redis and MongoDB. I chose MongoDB because I already had experience using Redis. Mongoose seemed like the strongest backed framework for MongoDB so I went straight ahead and added a MongoLab database to a new Heroku application. That's pretty much it, and definitely not overkill.
You can find the source code for srn.js and the original blog written for Azure on my Github profile.
