Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—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 Kristina Chodorow and Michael Dirolf, software engineers from 10gen, the company that develops and supports this open source database, MongoDB: The Definitive Guide (O'Reilly Media, $31.99 USD) 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 easy it is to handle data as self-contained JSON-style documents, rather than as records in a relational database.
