Please join Jon Tobin, Director of Solutions Engineering at Percona on Thursday, June 16, 2016 10:00am PDT (UTC-7) for a webinar on “MongoDB® Schema Design.”
Jon will discuss the most common misconception when evaluating the use of MongoDB: that it is “schemaless.” THIS IS NOT TRUE. MongoDB has a document structure, and thus, a schema. While the structure is much more dynamic than that of most relational database models, choices that you make can and will pay themselves forward (or haunt you forever).
In this webinar, we’ll cover what a document is, how they can be structured, and what structures work (and don’t work) for a particular use case. We will also touch on design decisions and how they affect the ability of the cluster to scale in the future. Some of the topics that will be covered are:
- Document Structure
- Embedding vs Referencing
- Normalization vs De-Normalization
- MongoDB Sharding
