Dwight Merriman, founder of 10gen, presented today, at Lab49 where I work, about his new database platform:
Mongo (from "humongous") is a high-performance, open source, schema-free document-oriented database. MongoDB is written in C++ and offers the following features:
- Collection oriented storage: easy storage of object/JSON -style data
- Dynamic queries
- Full index support, including on inner objects and embedded arrays
- Query profiling
- Replication and fail-over support
- Efficient storage of binary data including large objects (e.g. photos and videos)
- Auto-sharding for cloud-level scalability
Dwight pointed out the way different languages could to talk to MongoDB and C# was one of them using a community developed driver.
Following the post Experimenting with MongoDB from C#, MongoDB was up and running and I was storing and retrieving data in no time.
Looks like Matthew Podwysocki used the same reference and has MongoDB working with F#.
