11:15 - 12:00 Industrial Internet and Intelligent Machines with MongoDB
Matthias Kappeller, Team Lead, Software Developmet, Brueckner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
Smart Factories with M2M communications is the main goal of the fourth industrial revolution. The “Industrial Internet” as it is called by GE or the “Industry 4.0” project by the German government revolve around Big Data and Analytics. The machine building industry faces challenges in emerging markets such as high energy costs and a shortage of skilled staff, which drive the need for highly-optimized and self-optimizing machines. We will use the example of a world leader in this sector to describe how we built a system for real-time analytics of machine sensor data, using MongoDB as the heart of an easily scalable and decentralized storage system for operational data. Customers of Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH use the system to gather data from their production lines, monitor the quality of their products and optimize their production-processes with prediction analyses and deep production insights through machine learning algorithms.
Run MongoDB with Confidence Using MongoDB Management Service (MMS)
Sam Weaver, Product Manager, MongoDB
MongoDB Management Service (MMS) is the application for managing MongoDB, created by the engineers who develop MongoDB. MMS provides visibility into the performance of your cluster, alerting when key metrics are out of range and backup and recovery of your mission critical data. This session will provide you with an overview of MMS, including installation and setup and a walk through of metrics and alerts. Then we'll compare and contrast the various different backup strategies, with a deep dive on using MMS to back up your MongoDB data.
12:00 - 13:00 Lunch
13:00 - 13:50 Lightning Talk: Progress Software
Abstract coming soon!
Scaling MongoDB
Massimo Brignoli, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
You've got MongoDB deployed, but your app has taken off and you need to set it up to perform under heavy loads. MongoDB offers sharding capabilities so we can horizontally scale our application and ensure consistent performance. In this session, we will go through scaling options for our application. You will walk away deeper understanding of how to configure your sharding setup, choose a shard key and leverage this feature for optimal scale.
Lightning Talk: Running MongoDB on Docker for High Performance Deployments
Johannes Brandstetter, Lead DevOps Engineer, MongoSoup, comSysto
Docker is an open-source engine that helps automate deployment of any process as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere. Docker containers are also immensely helpful when running thousands of MongoDB instances in a production environment. This talk will give you a quick overview of Docker, show you best practices and patterns for Dockerfiles aimed at running MongoDB within Docker with real life examples from MongoSoup. One part will focus on performance and how much overhead Docker produces in comparison to native MongoDB instances. I will also talk about which tools or frameworks in the Docker eco system have proven useful to orchestrate larger deployments with Replica Sets and Sharding (e.g. CoreOS, fleet, geard, vulcand, Kubernetes, etc.)

14:00 - 14:50 The Aggregation Framework
Norberto Leite, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
MongoDB offers two native data processing tools: MapReduce and the Aggregation Framework. MongoDB’s built-in aggregation framework is a powerful tool for performing analytics and statistical analysis in real-time and generating pre-aggregated reports for dashboarding. In this session, we will demonstrate how to use the aggregation framework for different types of data processing including ad-hoc queries, pre-aggregated reports, and more. At the end of this talk, you should walk aways with a greater understanding of the built-in data processing options in MongoDB and how to use the aggregation framework in your next project.
Lightning Talk: Pure Storage
Markus Grau, Systems Engineer, Pure Storage

Lightning Talk: Get Even More Value from MongoDB Applications
Peyman Mohajerian, Senior Big Data Architect, Hadoop COE, Teradata
MongoDB is the hottest trend in NoSQL databases, helping customers all over the world. Once the application is built, you can generate even more revenue or cost savings by apply deep analytics to all that rich JSON data. Teradata and MongoDB are building a high speed ability to swap data to and from MongoDB amazingly fast. The Teradata Data Warehouse can then combine the MongoDB real time data with all kinds of analytic data such as customer profitability, historic inventory levels, consumer profiles, logistics, suppliers, and so on. If you have a MongoDB application running, it’s a good time to get even more value out of your JSON data. This talk will cover use cases and a quick review of the technical architecture.
