Chartboost makes a technology platform that helps mobile game developers find new users and monetize games. To do that, the company runs one of the largest MongoDB databases in the world, and writes to a database of one billion objects. At Rackspace::Solve San Francisco, Chartboost Co-Founder and CTO Sean Fannan talked about how Chartboost manages scale and growth.
I spend most of my days hacking on MongoDB environments, so it’s easy for me to get pumped about new features when I hear about them. And there are a few recent MongoDB updates and announcements that have me particularly excited.
We changed the database business in June when we offered free backups to anybody using MongoDB. We share our expansive disk infrastructure with the community to help folks get backed up, so they can sleep easy. It’s not an add-on. It’s not an upcharge.
So you managed to survive the first post and are still hungering for more? Don’t worry, I got you covered. This time around, we’ll get into more of the peripheral, optional components that might be useful to you. The format will largely be the same as the first post, so let’s get right to it.
So you wanna learn you some Hadoop, eh? Well, get ready to drink from the firehose, because the Hadoop ecosystem is crammed full of software, much of which duplicates efforts, and much of which is named so similarly that it’s very confusing for newcomers.
I lay awake at night worrying about other people’s data.
Have you heard of MapReduce? How about Data Lake or petabytes? If you’ve heard these big data terms before and weren’t sure exactly what they meant, it’s time to find out. CloudU today is launching its “Bigger is Better” Big Data Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
Rackspace and ObjectRocket want to inspire developers to be creative. We want to help them build applications that solve pressing problems – both today and in the future.
I was recently in a meeting with the CIO and a selection of senior Business Unit executives from one of Australia’s largest companies. We discussed the importance of cloud and big data for all businesses in the future and how these technologies and concepts could apply to their industry. Looking at the body language around the room, the reactions were typical of senior executives really exploring these concepts for the first time – awe, excitement, trepidation, confusion, curiosity and a desire to learn more.
