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.

11:00am - 11:50am

MongoDB for Time Series Data: Setting the Stage for Sensor Management

Mark Helmstetter, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

The United States is beginning to make its transition to self-driving cars. To facilitate the transition, the United States Department of Transportation is setting up central service to monitor traffic conditions nationwide, deploying 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.

Automate MongoDB with MongoDB Management Service

Cailin Nelson, VP of Engineering for MMS and Cloud , MongoDB

MongoDB Management Service makes operations effortless, reducing complicated tasks to a single click. You can now provision machines, configure replica sets and sharded clusters, and upgrade your MongoDB deployment all through the MMS interface. This session will introduce you to the engineering team at MongoDB building the automation functionality in MMS. We'll walk through demos of all the new MMS features, including provisioning, expanding and contracting a cluster, resizing the oplog, and managing users.

3:00pm - 3:50pm

MongoDB and Hadoop: Driving Business Insights

Justin Lee, Software Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB and Hadoop can work together to solve big data problems facing today's enterprises. We will take an in-depth look at how the two technologies complement and enrich each other with complex analyses and greater intelligence. We will take a deep dive into the MongoDB Connector for Hadoop and how it can be applied to enable new business insights with MapReduce, Pig, and Hive, and demo a Spark application to drive product recommendations.

Securing Your MongoDB Deployment

David Erickson, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

Security is more critical than ever with new computing environments in the cloud and expanding access to the internet. There are a number of security protection mechanisms available for MongoDB to ensure you have a stable and secure architecture for your deployment. We'll walk through general security threats to databases and specifically how they can be mitigated for MongoDB deployments. Topics will include general security tools and how to configure those for MongoDB, an overview of security features available in MongoDB, including LDAP, SSL, x.509 and Authentication.

4:00pm - 4:50pm

Write Yourself a Storage Engine in 40 Minutes

Mathias Stearn, Software Engineer, MongoDB

In the next version of MongoDB the storage layer will be re-architected to improve scalability, maintainability and performance. Version 2.8 will include an API to allow plugging in alternate storage engines. This will include both how individual records are stored as well as the structure of indexes. Mathias Stearn, MongoDB Server Engineer, will walk through writing a simple implementation using our unit test mock that he wrote as an example. You'll walk away knowing the necessary components for plugging in your own storage engine and how they interact with each other and the rest of MongoDB.

Diagnostics & Debugging

Asya Kamsky, Principal Solutions Architect, MongoDB

You've hit some bottleneck in MongoDB. Now what do you do? How do you figure out what part of your system is causing the problem? MongoDB offers a number of tools for diagnosing performance issues and monitoring areas of your application and infrastructure that may need additional resources or attention. These include mongostat, mongotop, various parts of MMS and mtools. In this talk we will walk through a number of performance scenarios and use these tools to diagnose problems and common (and not so common) pitfalls in your MongoDB cluster.
