Millions of people monitor their homes with “Smart Home” technology. A small genomic sequencer the size of a small cellphone helps health workers understand the spread of viruses like Ebola and stop the an epidemic in its tracks.
One of the largest transformations in the twenty first century is the Internet of Things (IoT) - the availability for devices to process sensor data and to analyze this data for new insights in real time. IoT has been adopted across many industries, from home services to retail to industrial manufacturing.
MongoDB World will showcase customers who have turned to MongoDB to tackle the complicated world of IoT. Learn more about how MongoDB is securing homes, tracking the spread of Ebola and more through IoT.
Building and Scaling the Internet of Things with MongoDB at Vivint
Three years ago Vivint started an ambitious initiative to make the Smart Home mainstream. Their new platform had to have ultimate extensibility, ultra-low latency, a wide array of functionality out of the gate, and it had to be ready to attach millions of devices in its first year of operation. With only a year to go from concept to customers, Nick Brown’s team at Vivint chose to built a brand new integration platform based around MongoDB. 8 million devices and 1 billion messages per day later, Nick will share best practices for architecting scaleable IoT platforms based on his experience.
Building an IoT Network
In this session, Dave de Groote will share how he and a team of developers built new IoT network for the largest Telecom in Belgium. You’ll learn about the system’s requirements and how they arrived at MongoDB. Dave will also walk you through some of the application design and schema tradeoffs they made, how they defined storage engine requirements, and the aggregation and indexing strategies that allow for read-intensive and high performance systems.
Building the Internet of Living Things
Oxford Nanopore Technologies uses MongoDB to help prevent the spread viruses by analyzing genetic material in real-time.
The UK-based company has built a handheld device that can analyze any piece of genetic material in just a few hours, rather than the weeks it had taken previously.
This speed is enabled by Oxford Nanopore’s MongoDB-powered cloud deployment that lets users access its genetic database anywhere in the world. Their device, MinIon, is being used in Guinea to track the outbreak of Ebola, and will soon be tested by NASA in the international space station. At MongoDB World, you’ll meet Richard Carter, Associate Director of Data Integration at Oxford Nanopore Technologies, who will teach you how they build the software behind the MinIon device to rapidly analyze complex genomic information. You’ll learn how they simplify operations with Cloud Manager and how they optimize their schemas for fast reads.
