Ten things I didn’t know about MongoDB | Becoming a better systems builder

On Tuesday of this week, I had the pleasure of attending MongoNYC. I’ve dabbled a bit with MongoDB and am a big fan of the project. The conference had 4 tracks split across different rooms so I only managed to go to a quarter of the talks. FYI: all the talks are going to be put out on video soon if anyone cares to go through them.

How This Web Site Uses MongoDB

How This Web Site Uses MongoDB | NoSQL | Scoop.it
Sometimes I'm asked what platform we're running the Business Insider on. Well, we're using LAMP, of course: Linux, Apache, Mongo, PHP. After I get past defending our choice of PHP to the haters (you know who you are!), people ask what the M stands for. Our database is not MySQL, but Mongo.
So what's Mongo?
MongoDB is an open-source, non-relational database that combines three key qualities: scalable, schemaless, and queryable. It has native drivers for pretty much every major language, and a small but growing community.

NoSQL takes a seat on Android with new mobile version of CouchDB

NoSQL takes a seat on Android with new mobile version of CouchDB | NoSQL | Scoop.it

A new mobile version of the CouchDB database system, called CouchOne Mobile, is available for Google's Android operating system. The mobile version is still at a relatively early stage of development, but it will allow developers to take advantage of CouchDB's sophisticated replication functionality to synchronize data between desktop and mobile applications.

CouchDB is a schema-less document-based database that uses JSON as a storage format and JavaScript as a query language. It is popular in the so-called NoSQL community and is increasingly seeing deployment in high-profile business and scientific computing environments.

NoSQL? Never Heard of It, Say Most IT Pros

NoSQL? Never Heard of It, Say Most IT Pros | NoSQL | Scoop.it
We write regularly here at ReadWriteWeb about various NoSQL solutions - how the scientists at CERN use CouchDB or how the social game Farmville utilizes Membase, for example - tracking how and why non-relational databases are developed and implemented.

As we've chronicled, NoSQL tools have been developed to meet the changing demands to databases, as arguably the traditional relational database is not optimized for the elasticity, the scale, or distributed nature of today's computing. And as such NoSQL tools like Cassandra and MongoDB have become an important part of many Web startups (Facebook, in the case of the former and Foursquare, in the case of the latter, for example.)
Sponsor

But outside these companies, how much penetration has NoSQL really seen?

A recent survey of 755 IT professionals undertaken by Information Week found that less than 5% of respondents are using or piloting NoSQL databases in their companies.

And 44% had never even heard of NoSQL.

That means a long road ahead for the NoSQL "movement," not just in terms of implementing the technologies but in terms of educating IT professionals about the benefits of NoSQL solutions. And it's also quite a testament to the staying power of the relational database.

Well, most IT pros actually don't need such solutions since they don't really have to scale. However, Document oriented DBs might be useful for them.

Even when relational databases are used to build large-scale services, they are unrecognizable as relational. Instead, they look almost exactly like a NoSQL database.
