As data volume and user loads continue to grow exponentially, new rich data structures and agile development methods are encouraging many organizations to move away from relational databases for their evolving applications.
In a webinar on November 7, Mat Keep, Principle Product Marketing Manager, will present considerations project teams must make as they plan their migration to MongoDB. Organizations such as Cisco, Craigslist, Foursquare and Shutterfly have all successfully migrated existing apps from relational databases to MongoDB. The considerations and best practices from projects such as these will also be presented. These include:
Storage architecture can have a direct impact on MongoDB performance and the architecture of MongoDB makes it ideal for large-scale deployments. NoSQL databases are designed from the ground up to be distributed with more hosts for better performance. By leveraging solid-state drive technology with concepts like storage virtualization, high-quality service, and horizontal scaling, storage systems like SolidFire are able to combine the comforts of traditional dedicated storage performance with the simplicity and scalability expected from MongoDB.
Chris Merz, Chief Database Strategist and Senior Database App Engineer at SolidFire, will walk through real-world examples in this webinar on November... Read More >

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? MongodB provides internal tooling for running aggregations and MapReduce, which can help accomplish a number of analytical tasks.
Register for our next webinar on October 31 to learn about three different ways to aggregate your data with MongoDB. You’ll also learn which approaches best suit your use case. Achille Brighton, a consulting engineer at MongoDB, will explain how no matter what your big data needs... Read More >
