Big data can mean big headaches. MongoDB is a document-oriented database designed to be flexible, scalable, and very fast, even with big data loads. It's built for high availability, supports rich, dynamic schemas, and lets you easily distribute data across multiple servers.
MongoDB in Action introduces you to MongoDB and the document-oriented database model. This perfectly paced book provides both the big picture you'll need as a developer and enough low-level detail to satisfy a system engineer. Numerous examples will help you develop confidence in the crucial area of data modeling. You'll also love the deep explanations of each feature, including replication, auto-sharding, and deployment.
Written for developers. No MongoDB or NoSQL experience required.
I started off with low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by the no-nonsense style of writing, that took time off to explain the most important topics
Probably one of the best books on the subject at the time of this review.
