I suppose there once was a time when it was acceptable to take months (or years) planning out an application and its associated data schema, building it and then resisting any efforts to update it (because the data infrastructure was so calcified that change was painful if not impossible). We don't live in that time anymore. Particularly in this age of Big Data, we must constantly iterate... Read More >
Last month, 10gen announced its sponsorship for hackNY, the non-profit aiming to federate the next generation of hackers for New York City. We’ve been longtime supporters of hackNY and were excited to present the founders, Evan Korth and Chris Wiggins, with a donation of $75,000 at MongoNYC.
At the conference, Chris and Evan sat for a brief interview, where they talked about how technology is transforming the key industries in New York City, from media, advertising, publishing, finance and beyond. They explained how hackNY’s model, which organizes student hackathons and summer fellowship programs, give... Read More >
At MongoNYC, we announced a strategic partnership with Rackspace to offer a cloud platform engineered specifically for MongoDB. We’re teaming up with Rackspace’s recently acquired Database-as-a-Service, ObjectRocket, to make it easier to develop and scale large MongoDB deployments in the cloud.
Through the partnership, we’re looking forward to deepening our relationship with Rackspace on several fronts. We plan to collaborate on sales and marketing initiatives to expand adoption of MongoDB. We’ll work together on technical support for customers, with Rackspace escalating support of customers to 10gen. And we’ll make it easy for 10gen customers to provision ObjectRocket instances from...

Slides and videos are now up from the largest ever MongoNYC, the one day conference in New York City dedicated to MongoDB. Based on feedback from attendees, here are the Top 5 Videos from MongoNYC, which range from a series of use cases, to best practices for using MongoDB in production.
Welcome to the Age of Big Data. Or perhaps it’s the Age of Big Data Agnosticism. In a Newtonian twist, what started as a wave of hype for data’s transformational potential on organizations everywhere has turned into an equal and opposite backlash of big data naysaying.
It is an understandable reaction to the great over-selling of big data as a kind of enterprise cure-all. Of course, in some companies, big data pilots have produced nothing but big piles of unfulfilled expectations.
But the problem likely is not big data.
Big data remains potentially the most powerful engine for business transformation... Read More >
MongoDB Monitoring Service, MongoDB’s free tool for monitoring MongoDB clusters, has a fresh new look, along with an improved user experience. The latest release features a simpler registration flow, improved options for adding alerts and a clearer, redesigned page. In addition, we did a major front-end code refactor so that future UI changes will be easier to implement and so we can deliver new features faster. All of these changes were designed with the end user in mind, making it easier to get up and running on MMS.
