MongoDB: How We Did It – Reanimating Identity at AOL
Doug Haydon, Architect, AOL
AOL experienced explosive growth and needed a new database that was both flexible and easy to deploy with little effort. They chose MongoDB. Due to the complexity of internal systems and the data, most of the migration process was spent building a new identity platform and adapters for legacy apps to talk to MongoDB. Systems were migrated in 4 phases to ensure that users were not impacted during the switch. Turning on dual reads/writes to both legacy databases and MongoDB also helped get production traffic into MongoDB during the process. Ultimately, the project was successful with the help of MongoDB support. Today, the team has 15 shards, with 60-70 GB per shard.
11:15am - 12:00pm MongoDB for Time Series Data: Setting the Stage for Sensor Management
Mark Helmstetter, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
Imagine that the United States is beginning to make its transition to self-driving cars. To facilitate the transition, it's necessary to set up central service to monitor traffic conditions nationwide, deploy sensors throughout the interstate system that monitor traffic conditions including car speeds, pavement and weather conditions, as well as accidents, construction, and other sources of traffic tie ups. MongoDB has been selected as the database for this application. In this first session, we will walk through designing the application’s schema that will both support the high update and read volumes as well as the data aggregation and analytics queries.
Eagle6 Enterprise Situational Awareness
Adam Bell, Director, Product Management, Rivera Group
Eagle6 is a product that use system artifacts to create a replica model that represents a near real-time view of system architecture. Eagle6 was built to collect system data (log files, application source code, etc.) and to link system behaviors in such a way that the user is able to quickly identify risks associated with unknown or unwanted behavioral events that may result in unknown impacts to seemingly unrelated down-stream systems. This session is designed to present the capabilities of the Eagle6 modeling product and how we are using MongoDB to support near-real-time analysis of large disparate datasets.
12:00pm - 12:45pm Lunch (8th Floor)
12:45pm - 1:05pm Lightning Talk: Real-Time Analytics from MongoDB
Ben Connors, Worldwide Head of Alliances, TIBCO Analytics/Jaspersoft and Gene Arnold, Senior SE, TIBCO Analytics/Jaspersoft
MongoDB analytics that bring real value to the data are becoming more important to successful MongoDB deployments. This presentation will review various approaches for MongoDB analytics, including batch, real-time, and extended functions, including the pros and cons of each, and why analytics are important for successful MongoDB projects. It will include an in-depth demonstration of how to apply one of these techniques to example MongoDB data.

Agility and Scalability with MongoDB
Chris Biow, Principal Technologist, MongoDB
MongoDB has taken a clear lead in adoption among the new generation of databases, including the enormous variety of NoSQL offerings. A key reason for this lead has been a unique combination of agility and scalability. Agility provides business units with a quick start and flexibility to maintain development velocity, despite changing data and requirements. Scalability maintains that flexibility while providing fast, interactive performance as data volume and usage increase. We'll address the key organizational, operational, and engineering considerations to ensure that agility and scalability stay aligned at increasing scale, from small development instances to web-scale applications. We will also survey some key examples of highly-scaled customer applications of MongoDB.
