About the Presentation
MongoDB works differently than other databases. It's document oriented data model, range based partitioning, and strong consistency model are well suited to some problems, and less well suited to others. In this webinar, we'll go through:
- Real world use cases of MongoDB that take advantage of these unique features
- Review how specific customers using MongoDB implement their solution
- How you can build similar solutions for your own organization

MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. Instead of storing your data in tables and rows as you would with a relational database, in MongoDB you store JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. The goal of MongoDB is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and scalable) and relational databases (which have rich functionality).
