Using MongoDB to Build a Fast and Scalable Content Repository


Slide Deck

mongoDB for giant ideas
MongoDB can be used in the Nuxeo Platform as a replacement for more traditional SQL databases. Nuxeo's content repository, which is the cornerstone of this open source software platform, can now completely rely on MongoDB for data storage.

This presentation will explain the motivation for using MongoDB and will emphasize the different implementation choices driven by the very nature of a NoSQL datastore like MongoDB.

It will give you the opportunity to see how the integration in the Nuxeo Platform was achieved and what benefits were gained: increased performance (with actual benchmarks) and better response to some use cases.
