How does MongoDB help you manage a huMONGOus amount of data collected through your web application? With this authoritative introduction, you'll learn the many advantages of using document-oriented databases, and discover why MongoDB is a reliable, high-performance system that allows for almost infinite horizontal scalability.

Written by engineers from 10gen, the company that develops and supports this open source database, MongoDB: The Definitive Guide provides guidance for database developers, advanced configuration for system administrators, and an overview of the concepts and use cases for other people on your project.

  • Learn how MongoDB’s schema-free data model handles documents, collections, and multiple databases
  • Execute basic write operations, and create complex queries to find data with any criteria

  • Learn about monitoring, security and authentication, backup and repair, and more
  • Set up master-slave and automatic failover replication in MongoDB
