About the Presentation
MongoDB works differently than other databases. Its 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
- How specific customers implement their solutions
- How you can build similar solutions for your own organization
About the Speaker
Blossom Coryat, Solution Architect, 10gen
Blossom Coryat is a Solutions Architect at 10gen, who helps make customers successful with mongoDB. Blossom was first introduced to document oriented databases at MarkLogic where she was a senior consultant for three years. She also has extensive experience in search and information retrieval applications which she gained through many implementations with Autonomy products.
10gen develops MongoDB, and offers production support, training, and consulting for the open source database.
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).
