Today’s web applications require enormous scalability and performance. This has spurred the growth of a new class of databases that trade off some of the features of relational databases to offer high performance, ease of programming, high availability and the ability to scale in cloud environments. They are collectively called NoSQL or non-relational databases.
Overview of MongoDB
MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a high-performance, open source, schema-free document-oriented database. Trading off a few traditional features of databases (notably joins and transactions) in order to achieve much better performance, MongoDB is fast, scalable, and designed for web development. This talk will cover:
Mongo occupies a sweet spot for powering web apps, and is in use at SourceForge, EA Games, Github, the New York Times, The Business Insider, and many other companies.
Kristina Chodorow is a Software Engineer at 10gen, where she maintains the MongoDB Perl and PHP Drivers. Kristina has presented MongoDB in numerous forums, including OSCON 2009.
