Despite the hype, Big Data is more than just a buzzword. Big Data is enabling organizations to create new products, to outpace their competitors and to save tens of millions of dollars. In this paper, we begin with a description of Big Data and the data management landscape. Next, we describe examples of customers innovating with Big Data using MongoDB, the leading NoSQL database, which has been a catalyst of the Big Data movement. Finally, given the nascent state of the market, we provide guidance to organizations selecting technologies for their Big Data projects.
This document provides guidance on best practices for deploying and managing MongoDB clusters. It assumes familiarity with the architecture of MongoDB and a basic understanding of concepts related to enterprise software deployment. Because MongoDB is designed to be simple to administer and to deploy, most operations professionals find they can become competent with MongoDB in a short period of time and with minimal training.
Apollo Group, best known as the parent company of the University of Phoenix, sought to build a cloud-based learning management platform and needed a new data store to support it. After a thorough evaluation, Apollo Group selected MongoDB for its ease of use, performance, availability, and cost effectiveness. This paper describes the process and outcomes of Apollo Group's assessment.
For much of the last decade, telecoms have felt left behind by hardware and software vendors in the race for innovation, hamstrung by their reliance on legacy systems. With its agility and scalability, MongoDB enables telecoms to couple the resources of a multinational with the speed of a startup, empowering them to expand their customer bases, increase revenue per user and improve customer acquisition and retention.
In this white paper, we compare the total cost of ownership (TCO) of MongoDB and Oracle. It can be faster and cheaper to develop and deploy applications on MongoDB than on Oracle Database, yielding both bottom-line benefits – lower developer and administrative costs – and topline advantages – it is easier and faster to evolve applications to meet changing business and market conditions.
Barry Devlin, one of the founders and foremost authorities on data warehousing, dives into modern requirements for Business Intelligence and looks at where NoSQL and MongoDB fit into this ecosystem. This white paper covers the evolving needs for business intelligence, where MongoDB fits, as well as a few case studies from mobile operator O2, and social media analysis pioneer Traackr.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) powers mission critical applications for thousands of enterprises and delivers performance, reliability, scalability, and security. 10gen and Red Hat have worked together to develop a white paper which details the steps to deploy MongoDB on RHEL. In addition, the paper details the process of optimizing RHEL for performance, monitoring and resource management. To learn more about deploying MongoDB on RHEL, download the white paper.
This white paper will help you understand one of the most popular NoSQL options available with the AWS cloud computing platform — the open source application MongoDB. We provide an overview of general best practices that apply to all major NoSQL options, and we examine important MongoDB implementation characteristics such as performance, durability, and security. We pay particular attention to identifying features that support scalability, high availability, and fault-tolerance.
