The benefits for MongoDB 2.0
If you have seen my Twitter’s profile, you can look that I’m a MongoDB big fan, and on September 12th, the MongoDB’s Development Team announced the version 2.0 of the popular NoSQL database, used by several companies and with a great community behind advocating, using and trusting on the good and useful features of it.
New Features, MongoDB rocks !!!
This new version brings a lot of good features and improvements, but for me like a devops guy, this list are my rocks:
the compact command: It’s a very useful tool to compact a single collections and its indexes. On previous releases, there was a only way to this reparing the completed database
- Sharding Authentication: After of the version 1.9.1, you have the chance to use authentication with the replica sets and sharding. You can see the official docs to learn more about this
Priority on the Replica Sets: This, basically introduced a new priority value between 0 and 1000, which is used to control which server on the replicat set you prefer like primary. This is very useful for large productions systems like Foursquare and Craiglist
A big sight to MongoDB
The MongoDB community is living a great momment with the NoSQL solution:
Dwight Merriman, and its team at 10gen are more proud to supports MongoDB
SAP, the big multinational company behind Bill McDermott’s and Jim Hagemann Snabe’s leadership, choosed MongoDB as its Enterprise Content Management(ECM) system for its PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) offering to atrack more customers everyday
- Everyday, the Production Deployments’s list on the MongoDB site grows exponentially, so more and more people are more interested on the platform
So, a little advice for you: if you are using large set of data and you want to use a cheap, reliable and a great NoSQL, I recommend to you that you have to look to MongoDB, seriously.
