Run Applications Anywhere with MongoDB Atlas Webinar Hong Kong
No one cloud infrastructure delivers all things to all people. Cloud vendors offer different blends of service-level agreements, availability, security architectures, pricing, tools, and resources for various needs. An increasing number of enterprises will cherry-pick among the various vendors to find the best combination of features for each specific workload. Where we get into MongoDB Cloud is the fact that with MongoDB Atlas, we deliver the database as a fully managed cloud service in nearly 100 regions worldwide across AWS, GCP, and Azure. Multi-cloud clusters in MongoDB Atlas, our globally distributed developer data platform, take the concept a step further by enabling a single application to use multiple clouds simultaneously. In this presentation, you will learn with multi-cloud clusters, how data is easily distributed across different public clouds, enabling data mobility and resilience without the complexity of manual data replication. The presentation was conducted in Cantonese.

Built-in, not bolt-on security: Unpacking vital security features in MongoDB Atlas for Government
Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM ET Security is a non-negotiable when it comes to working in the public sector. Government agencies and contractors are trusted with sensitive data every day, and must balance protection of that data with the need to leverage that data for innovation. Using solutions that are secure by default is critical for public sector organizations, particularly in light of recent comments by Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly. “We have to have [multi factor authentication] by default. We can't charge extra for security logging and [single sign-on],” Easterly said. “We need to ensure that we're coming together to really protect the technology ecosystem instead of putting the burden on those least able to defend themselves.” MongoDB Atlas for Government (US) ensures government agencies can modernize without compromising on data security. In this session, data security experts will break down: Atlas for Government’s new FedRAMP Moderate Authorization Key built-in security features including field-level encryption, role-based access management, network isolation, and more Strategies for modernizing while keeping data secure

Dynamic Schema Design
Schema design determines the way an application handles its data. With traditional relational databases, you must define your schema before you can add any data. This inflexibility means you can’t change your schema as your data, application requirements or business evolves. In today’s world hyper-competitive, global business environment, this can hamper your efforts to innovate and stay on top of the competition. NoSQL databases arose to address this limitation by allowing you to insert data without a predefined schema. Because of this, you can easily make changes to an application without interruption. The result is more reliable code integration, faster development, and database administration time. MongoDB provides a document data model that lets you store and combine any type of data while also offering sophisticated data access and rich indexing features. With MongoDB, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time your business requirements change or evolve over time.

Evaluating Database Models
When you’re in the design phase of an application, evaluating database models is a critical step in the process. The database model determines the way an application handles data, directly affects the application’s performance and the ability to adapt to changing business requirements. In recent years, new data models have come about as part of the wave of NoSQL databases. These data models were designed to be flexible in order to tackle the large volume and variety of data typically generated by Big Data applications. In contrast, the data models in relational databases are inflexible and ill equipped to accommodate the way applications process data today. When you choose a newer, flexible database model, you benefit from: Being able to change your data model over time to suit your evolving needs Greater efficiency from not having to make time-consuming updates to the existing data in your system Being able to combine data from multiple sources to create a single view of your data MongoDB leads the pack of new database models by offering a document data model that allows for iterative and adaptive data modeling. A flexible schema design lets you incorporate new data into your application without a predefined schema. This allows you to iterate on your application with no interruption or downtime. MongoDB is a database built for today’s always-on, Big Data applications. With MongoDB, you can simplify your design, dynamically modify the database model, and cut down on overall development time.

Internet of Things Applications
The future has arrived. Is your database prepared? Technology companies are doing some awe-inspiring things with Internet of Things (IoT) applications. IoT describes technology which connects physical assets and devices together to share information and make life easier and more convenient. IoT devices are processing volumes of data previously unimagined. Bosch, for example, is harnessing data to use in a range of industrial internet of things applications including manufacturing, automotive, retail, and energy. With these sensor-enabled objects, futuristic scenarios have come alive in the ways previously thought impossible. New revenue opportunities abound but only if companies can wrangle that data into something meaningful. Enter MongoDB, the world’s most popular NoSQL database, to help you make sense of sensor data, building internet of things applications never before possible. All this in less time and with less cost than with alternative technologies. The advantages of creating an internet of things application with MongoDB: Document data model. With MongoDB, you can manage and incorporate data in any structure. This allows for you to launch and iterate on your application without having to start from scratch to meet evolving requirements. Inexpensively scale. IoT applications process great volumes of data through sensors so your system will need to scale quickly and cheaply. One of the advantages of MongoDB is the ability to scale out on inexpensive commodity hardware in your data center or in the cloud. Analyze any kind of data with MongoDB. Real-time analysis within the database means you don’t get the time delay you normally would processing data through an expensive data warehouse system. Internet of things applications can spell revolutionary change for your business. Learn more about why IoT is only possible with newer Big Data technology like MongoDB. Download our white paper, Why NoSQL Databases for the Internet of Things: Machina Research, for more insight into the challenges and opportunities for IoT in a rapidly evolving landscape.

Managing Distributed Data
Today’s generation of databases offers application developers lower cost, greater efficiency, and superior performance in comparison to its more traditional relational counterparts. A key driver behind the lower cost is the ability to scale out your system over commodity hardware. Older relational database technology, on the other hand, is expensive to scale because you need to buy a bigger server to meet the greater volume demand. MongoDB is the leader in a new generation of databases that are designed for scalability. With a technique called “sharding” you are able to easily distribute data and grow your deployment over inexpensive hardware or in the cloud. One of the benefits of scaling with MongoDB is that sharding is automatic and built into the database. This relieves developers of having to build in sharding logic into the application code to scale out the system. Scaling a database system is complex but MongoDB makes it easy. Find out more about the database developers love and the one that enterprises rely on to grow their businesses. Download our white paper today.

Managing Unstructured Data
Data was pretty straightforward in the days before online applications and mobile devices. Databases processed data in a pre-defined structure of rows and columns contained in tables. This was totally upended with the rise of unstructured data in recent years. By some accounts, unstructured data – think emails, SMS texts, videos, social media posts – makes up more than 95% of all data generated today. The old way of managing data in relational databases, then, is encountering great limitations. Enter NoSQL databases to pick up the challenge of managing unstructured data. MongoDB is the top NoSQL database solution according to DB-Engine rankings, and MongoDB has been downloaded 40 million times and counting. MongoDB’s document data model is particularly well suited for storing unstructured data. It stores all related data together within a single document, and doesn’t require data to fit neatly into the rigid structure of relational rows and columns. Unstructured data can represent both a challenge and an opportunity. Many enterprises have used MongoDB to build applications that could never have been built with relational technology. Learn more about how you can shine by making productive use of your unstructured data and download our whitepaper today.

Application downtime or slow performance could spell disaster for any business. It is essential for companies to proactively monitor and work to ensure high availability and high performance for applications. As part of this strategy, operations teams should establish performance requirements that are continuously monitored to ensure the needs of the business are being successfully delivered to customers. At MongoDB, we take database performance very seriously, and we work to make each release faster and more resource efficient. With MongoDB 3.0, we made major advances in database performance and compared this release to prior releases to understand just how far we had come. Using YCSB, a popular testing framework for database performance, we evaluated a number of workloads on MongoDB 2.6 and MongoDB 3.0. We found greatly enhanced performance over the previous version – anywhere between 7 to 10 times better performance. United Software Associates, an independent third party, also tested MongoDB performance against other database technologies. In their benchmark testing, MongoDB far exceeded other databases in terms of throughput and latency across a number of configurations. There is a reason why MongoDB is the leading database with 40 million downloads and the highest ranking from DB-Engines among NoSQL databases.

Building a content management system (CMS) that stores and serves content to a variety of applications requires the latest technology and development approaches. For the best user experience, the CMS has to handle a large volume of data along with a great variety of unstructured data all in real-time. Typical relational database technology falls short in this area because this kind of database has difficulty incorporating new content, attributes, or features without negatively impacting performance. To address the requirements of modern content management systems you need to turn to the latest database technology that can handle a large volume of unstructured data. MongoDB, the leading database of a new generation of technology called NoSQL, lets you store and serve up any type of content within a single database. You can build these systems with MongoDB quickly and at much less expense than with decades old relational technology. MongoDB is particularly well-suited to support your CMS efforts because the software offers: A ** flexible data model ** means that you can incorporate any kind of data into your CMS, regardless of the source. This flexible model also lets you make frequent updates to the database without downtime to your application. ** Scalable to millions of users ** as MongoDB has a native horizontal scale out architecture that easily lets you accommodate additional demand as your audience grows. ** Much lower cost ** to complete your CMS project as your teams are more productive and you end up spending much less on commodity hardware to scale the system. By some estimates, it costs only 10% of what it would cost with a relational database to build a CMS on MongoDB. MongoDB unites all your content assets into a single database and makes for an overall better user experience. This helps your enterprise stay competitive as customers today expect a seamless experience from your business. Forbes used MongoDB to build a CMS in just 2 months and a new mobile site in just a month. MongoDB helped the publisher gain more insight into the social sharing of their articles so that they were able to capitalize in real-time on content that was going viral. And there are countless other enterprises who have leveraged MongoDB technology for their CMS: eBay used it to build a media metadata storage for their web properties, Pearson employed MongoDB technology to develop a cloud-based learning management system, and Carfax migrated their vehicle history database into a MongoDB CMS and found that they could service 10x more customers as a result. These are just a few examples of companies who take advantage of the database to build powerful MongoDB CMS. Find out more about how MongoDB can help you develop killer apps that will wow your customers – both internal and external alike. Download our white paper today.
