About the Technology
Big data can mean big headaches. MongoDB is a document-oriented database designed to be flexible, scalable, and very fast, even with big data loads. It's built for high availability, supports rich, dynamic schemas, and lets you easily distribute data across multiple servers.
About the book
MongoDB in Action introduces you to MongoDB and the document-oriented database model. This perfectly paced book provides both the big picture you'll need as a developer and enough low-level detail to satisfy a system engineer. Numerous examples will help you develop confidence in the crucial area of data modeling. You'll also love the deep explanations of each feature, including replication, auto-sharding, and deployment.
- Indexes, queries, and standard DB operations
- Map-reduce for custom aggregations and reporting
- Schema design patterns
- Deploying for scale and high availability
Excellent. Many practical examples.
Not only the how, but also the why.
Has a developer-centric flavor--an excellent reference.
