The use of MongoDB

Posted 28 June 2011 - 02:28 PM

So i've been looking into learning how to use MongoDB and was wondering if any of you guys on Dream.In.Code use it for any projects? I've read the likes of FourSquare use it heavily instead of relational databases.

First you should look over all your NoSQL choices. Mongo DB, Couch DB, and Cassandra to name a few. Depending on what you are looking to do each has it's own capabilities, methods, and means of operation.

Currently, I am running a Cassandra single node- It's still in the beginning stages but I will say that it's a been interesting learning about the Super Column structures and the algorithms in which the database uses for backing up and immediate disk failure. I know you specified Mongo DB but I decided to post with where I am at w/ NoSQL.

Below are a few links:

I hope this helps you in some way. If you have any questions I will try and answer them or help you find an answer.

I love MongoDB. I've used it for a few of my own projects. My IRC bot, sexpbot, uses MongoDB. Furthermore, a project that I and a few friends of mine did/are doing uses it: http://4clojure.com
