RavenDB vs MongoDB: Which is Better? This White Paper compares the two leading NoSQL Document Databases on 9 features to find out which is the best solution for your next project.  

We will discuss how to manage large numbers of clusters using Chef roles. We'll also discuss how to automatically snapshot your RAID arrays and reprovision from the latest set of snapshots, as well as how to manage backups via role attributes. Bringing up a new node, provisioning volumes, and joining the cluster is a single knife command. This makes your nodes effectively disposable -- it's faster to reprovision from snapshot with Chef than to fix most sorts of problems. We will also talk about how to generate all of your Nagios and Ganglia monitoring checks automatically for all MongoDB clusters.
