In response to incredible demand from developers and DBA’s, we’re excited to announce MongoDB certification.
MongoDB certification offers developers and DBAs a new means to prove expertise on MongoDB and helps organizations hire and develop qualified professionals. These credentials recognize individuals with proven knowledge of the concepts and mechanics of the database and practical skills required to build applications backed by MongoDB.
Currently, we offer two exams: MongoDB Certified Developer, Associate Level and MongoDB Certified DBA, Associate Level. In the future, we will provide certification at the Professional and Master levels for each role.
There is a lot of interest in mobilizing large data sets for analysis. MongoDB scales easily to store huge volumes of data, but once you have that data, how do you make sense of it?

We recently launched a free usage tier for MMS Backup, our online backup service for MongoDB. We bill for backups on a monthly basis via credit card using Stripe, a MongoDB-powered service that makes it easy for developers to build applications that accept payments on the web.
We wanted to offer a free usage tier so that customers could sample our backup service. To accomplish that, we decided to make any bill less than $5 complimentary. $5 would be enough to back up roughly 5GB with 100MB of oplog data. Once the bill exceeded $5, the customer would... Read More >
