SQL Server Data Types

SQL Server Data Types

MongoDB scales from small deployments to those using billions of documents, or more. This talk will explain the steps Boxed Ice took to scale MongoDB up to 1 billion documents, along with the problems and solutions that arose along the way. Topics include hardware configurations, handling failover and dealing with large volumes of data.

This will be the first post in an ongoing series based on our popular webinar about the differences in building an application using SQL versus building the same application using MongoDB.First off - before we get into anything - what is it that we’re all trying to achieve with our data? Sure, there are necessary evils such as reading and writing data from databases, putting data on message buses, and working through open source integrations, but at the end of the day what we really...

Thanks to high usability, robust scalability, and powerful query capabilities, MongoDB is by far the most popular NoSQL database in the world. In fact, MongoDB is the only NoSQL database within reach of eclipsing the leading relational databases (including PostgreSQL).Now there’s another critical reason to choose MongoDB over the competition: SlamData, a new open source project, brings native SQL analytics to MongoDB. There’s no data relocation, no replication, and no ETL: just point...

Good afternoon. We've got two more to go here in the business track. We've had some great times in the last two days. We've heard many ways that organizations,companies, are exploiting MongoDB to help them think differently, act differently. We just heard a great story about Pearson Education-- how a non-unicorn is acting like aunicorn to drive mobile first. We've got two more presentations.We're here right now to talk about Medtronic-- the world's largest medical device company. We've...

Hudl serves almost 1 billion video views per month to athletes and coaches. We ran a large single SQL mirroring setup but quickly hit the limits of our AWS instances at the time. Over the past two years we have moved the majority of our data into a sharded MongoDB cluster and have seen developer productivity increase, reduced latency for our end users, and better server fault resiliency. This talk will discuss the challenges, shortcuts, and results of this transition on top of AWS.

Welcome back to our blog series highlighting the differences between developing an app with MongoDB vs. with RDBMS/SQL. Last week, we began to cover Day 14 and added a list of startup apps organized by region. We also added data that was provided to us by an external entitlements service. This week we’re going to continue our discussion of Day 14 by diving into queries.At this point, we’ve covered how to address broad queries that enable us to get everything or one thing from a...

Cloud Manager integrates with Amazon Web Services (AWS) so that you can provision EC2servers directly from the Cloud Manager interface. You can also terminate

8 out of 10 couples use TheKnot.com to help plan their wedding. A key part of planning involves selecting articles, photographs, and other resources and storing these in the user's Favorites. Recently we migrated major parts of our technology stack to open source technologies. As part of our migration strategy, we zeroed in on MongoDB, since it better suited our requirements for speed and data structure as well as eliminating the need for a caching layer. The transition required a period in...

The Obama administration faces ongoing criticism for the problems with its HealthCare.gov website and registration system. Connectivity issues as well as a data center crash due to overwhelming site traffic frustrated millions of Americans who had expected a functional government service.Mike Bracken, the first executive Director of Digital for the UK, reflected on the situation in a recent interview with NPR. According to Bracken, watching the United States’ government struggle was...

The Backup Blockstore Databases are the primary storage systems for the backup data of your MongoDB.
