MongoDB creator 10gen has changed its name to MongoDB, Inc. It’s probably not a bad idea to align the company’s name with the its sole product, but it will take a little getting used to.
10gen has added some new features to its MongoDB connector for Hadoop, including support for Hive and the ability to backup MongoDB files in HDFS.
10gen is announcing that energy demand specialist EnerNOC has rolled out MongoDB to help it analyze its power grid data in new ways. EnerNOC collects 1.5 billion data points every month, although it’s possible they won’t all find their way into the company’s MongoDB environment.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux has some advanced identity management features, and now it has extended them to popular NoSQL database MongoDB. According to a 10gen press release, “IT departments now have access to centralized user, password and certificate management, and are empowered to provide secure MongoDB deployments that are tightly integrated into their back office infrastructure.”
MetLife wants to build products faster, and to attract smart developers it’s launched a website for submitting qualifications in JSON, not PDF.
IBM and 10gen are collaborating on a standard that would make it easier to write applications that can access data from both MongoDB and relational systems such as IBM DB2.
MetLife is building new products on new technologies thanks to a $300 million investment in new technology and new skills. One of the first products is a MongoDB-based app that puts all of customers’ information in one place.
10gen, the company behind the popular MongoDB NoSQL database, has come out with a way for users to back up their data, so developers can focus on building applications.
Cloud service and hosting provider adds distributed Riak NoSQL database to its mix of services.
MongoDB creator 10gen is growing again, this time with the addition of Sydney Carey as the company’s first CFO. She’ll help lay the infrastructure for plans to more than double in size in two years as it eyes an eventual IPO.
