World’s smallest No SQL Database: The Devil Is In The Details

· Database Zone

Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

So, what is the point of the code that I have shown here:http://ayende.com/blog/162691/worlds-smallest-no-sql-database

The point was to show where you start, and how easy it is, but all the detailsthat you need to handle along the way. I decided that it would probably make for an interesting blog series about the sort of things that this example exposes.

In particular, I want to talk about:

  • I/O
  • Memory
  • Concurrency
  • ACID
  • Transactions
  • Searching
  • Scale up
  • Scale out
  • Aggregation
  • High availability
  • Backups
  • Monitoring

I might have a few more items along the way, but those are probably the most important ones.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
