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 >
ADP is quietly adapting its business to meet the demands of the modern consumer.
With over $10B in revenues and 600,000 clients, ADP is one of the largest business outsourcing solution providers in the world. While a slew of technology startups are disrupting established industries – from payments to taxis to healthcare – ADP focuses on innovation to maintain leadership. This strategy is driven from the top, but depends upon the bedrock of flexible data infrastructure like MongoDB to make it work.
IT As Innovator
For CIO Mike Capone, IT must be a source of innovation, and to that end... Read More >
IBM has invested a great deal of money to harness massive volumes of data. Yet it's telling that in a post about Big Data today, the company chooses to highlight the even greater importance of velocity of data:
True innovators are finding value in even the smallest bytes of data that move very rapidly into and out of the organization. That’s because most organizations will overlook these opportunities, wrongly thinking that because data moves too quickly and can’t be stored, there is no way to analyze it. Analyzing data in motion and capitalizing in the moment is the secret
Are you one of the 20,000 MongoDB users monitoring their servers with MongoDB Management Service? If so, you’ve probably gained valuable experience and expertise on the critical metrics to watch, performance tuning and operations best practices. We want you to share those experiences with the broader MongoDB community. To that end, we’re organizing a blogging contest this month to encourage you to tell those stories. Here’s how you can participate.
Publish a blog post of at least 250 words about MMS, with the goal of educating the MongoDB community on monitoring best practices
We are clearly in the early stages of a "tectonic shift" in the database market, as eWeek terms it. Not because any particular database vendor decided that the world was ripe for a change, but because the nature of data we're generating and processing has changed.
It is well understood that the current database giants have written superb products to solve primarily one problem (automating standard business processes), but we no longer live in a one problem world. The proliferation of
We’re pleased to introduce a free usage tier to MMS Backup, our online backup service designed for MongoDB. The free tier will make it easier for new users to get started with the service.
MMS offers point-in-time recovery for replica sets and consistent snapshots for sharded systems. It is also one of the lowest overhead ways to backup MongoDB, continually reading the oplog and transferring the data encrypted to the backup service.
The free tier will be available to new users during their first 12 months using MMS Backup. In that period, any monthly bill under $5 is... Read More >
Today MongoDB announced that we raised $150 million from a variety of investors both new (Salesforce.com, T.Rowe Price, EMC and others) and old (Sequoia, Red Hat, NEA, Flybridge, etc.). It's a great day for MongoDB, both the company and the project.
But mostly it's a great day for our customers and the MongoDB community in which they participate.
MongoDB Management Service (MMS) provides free monitoring with metrics specifically tuned for your MongoDB deployment. In this short tutorial, we’ll walk you through how you can install the Monitoring Agent on your system.
Step 1: Install Python Libraries & Setup Tools
The monitoring agent is written in Python, so you will need to make sure that you have the latest version of Python installed. You can do that by running the following command:
Open source has moved from imitator to innovator, and modern Business Intelligence (BI) tools like Pentaho reflect this. Today most BI tools are still tightly integrated with relational databases (RDBMS). But as Pentaho showed in its most recent Pentaho Business Analytics 5.0, this is set to change. BI tool vendors who persist in offering second-hand integration to first-class data sources like NoSQL databases are going to fall behind.
After all, data today is messy. While there is an always will be structured data, the Big Data explosion is being driven by diverse semi-structured and unstructured data, untidy... Read More >
