10gen Strokes the Enterprise

The monitoring is supposed to alert users on some 100+ operational metrics in real-time

10gen wheeled out an enterprise edition of MongoDB this week as part of a new subscription level, certified for deployment on several operating systems and making good on why the company raised $42 million last year.

The widgetry includes Kerberos authentication for security, reportedly the top user request, on-premise monitoring so the data doesn't have to leave the house, and role-based privileges.

The monitoring is supposed to alert users on some 100+ operational metrics in real-time. The role-based privileges provide separate responsibilities for the server, database and cluster administration. And the monitoring can all be done behind the firewall.

The only way to get the enterprise code will be to pay for it. However, folks will be free to try it for as long as a year and it'll always be free for test and development.

Otherwise, it'll cost $7,500 a year per node bundled with an SLA that promises the company will respond to a showstopper within 30 minutes of the user opening a trouble ticket.

10gen may not be able to fix the problem immediately but at least it'll be working on it.

The company has retired its Silver and Gold levels and replaced them with a Basic enterprise subscription that runs $2,500 a year per node and a Standard subscription that costs $5,000 a year per node.

At the same time 10gen released MongDB 2.4, the next cut of the NoSQL open source database, and it's pleased as punch with the management, performance and productivity features it's added, presuming that the community will be equally pleased and drive further adoption.

The new release includes hashed-based sharding, capped arrays, text search and geospatial enhancements with GeoJSON support.

The database now provides horizontal scaling by transparently sharding data across multiple physical servers, a simple and even distribution of reads and writes to the data in MongoDB.

10gen's text search, a very practical feature since search is the primary interface for navigating data in many apps, is still in beta.

The company describes its new home-grown search as native, real-time text search that simplifies development and deployment for MongoDB users with stemming and tokenization in 15 languages. It's supposed to be able to search across a data center for what's needed.

Counts are reportedly up to 20 times faster in 2.4.

The company also says that performance for real-time data analysis using MongoDB's new aggregation framework is now three-five times faster for most operations. Application deployment has been simplified by eliminating the need for a separate caching layer. The database's working set analyzer helps users maximize their capacity planning based on an analysis of real-time application resource utilization and there's also improved replication.

MongoDB claims more than four million downloads. 10gen has more than 600 commercial customers including Cisco, Craigslist, Disney, eBay, Forbes, Intuit, LexisNexis, McAfee, MTV, Salesforce.com and Shutterfly.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018.

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
