There is no such thing as NoSQL. Not as we tend to think of it, anyway. While NoSQL was born as a movement away from rigid relational data models so web giants could embrace Big Data with scale-out architectures, the term has come to categorize a set of databases that are more different than they are the same.
This broad categorization doesn’t work. It’s not helpful.
While we at MongoDB still sometimes refer to NoSQL, we try to do it sparingly, given its propensity to confuse rather than enlighten.
We’re pleased to announce our newest addition to the MongoDB World lineup. Charity Majors, Production Engineering Manager for Parse at Facebook, will close day one of the conference with a keynote on MongoDB’s value to ops teams.
Parse powers mobile apps, quickly scaling to over 260,000 apps since its launch in 2012. The team faces unique operational challenges. An app featured in the iTunes store can cause traffic to spike dramatically within hours, and the Parse platform needs to be resilient to these fluctuations. Parse relies on MongoDB as the underlying data store for all of their apps, and... Read More >
Data management has shifted from an important competency to a critical differentiator that can determine market winners and has-beens. New technologies are allowing organizations to realize the promise of big data. If you’re trying to determine which technologies are appropriate for your organization, MongoDB is here to help.
Through our Path to Proof program, we’ll work with your organization through the evaluation stage. We’ll provide you with expert advice on architecture and implementation at no cost to you. We’ll help you determine whether MongoDB is the right fit for upcoming projects and how it can fit into the database... Read More >
I recently had the opportunity to catch up with Alex Brdar and Minesh Patel, Principal and Senior Technical Architects at Razorfish in London, to discuss their use of MongoDB in a project to build Yonderbound’s new global online travel marketplace. The provided some great insight into agile development and how to get started with MongoDB - read on to hear their story

Many of the Internet of Things’ applications are focused on unlocking and monitoring real-time insights from the wider world. Governments and private manufacturers have been implementing real-time monitoring tools for interstate roads, enabling governments to unlock deeper operational intelligence into traffic management, including insights on individual vehicles such as speed and vehicle type and external conditions including weather and congestion. The challenges of building these types of systems is capturing and tracking these dynamic data points gathered by sensors.
Edeva is one of those businesses enabling real-time traffic management. A developer of intelligent traffic systems, Edeva manufactures a... Read More >
MongoDB is helping developers build and scale applications rapidly across the UK Public Sector. It has been adopted by a fast-growing number of UK government agencies and departments as they embrace open source technology and evolve their digital services and big data capability.
MongoDB today announced a partnership with IBM that brings the robust capabilities of MongoDB to the IBM Cloud marketplace. Starting today, IBM clients can quickly and easily download MongoDB community edition directly from the marketplace. Developers have relied on MongoDB on Softlayer’s high performance, bare metal cloud infrastructure for years. Now, with IBM’s backing, we are excited to announce new ways to access the fastest growing database in the world.
MongoDB is an open-source database used by companies of all sizes, across all industries and for a... Read More >
Data security and privacy is a critical concern in today’s connected world. Data analyzed from new sources such as social media, logs, mobile devices and sensor networks has become as sensitive as traditional transaction data generated by back-office systems. For this reason, big data technologies are evolving to meet the regulatory compliance standards demanded by industry and government.
MongoDB 2.6 extends capabilities to defend, detect and control access to online big data with the most complete security controls of any NoSQL database. These capabilities are discussed in the post below, and you can learn more for them in our live... Read More >
