MongoDB Shootout: MongoDB Atlas, Azure CosmosDB and Doing It Yourself

Tuesday 11:20AM-12:10PM

@ Swift Suite 1


50 minutes conference


Business / Case Studies, Operations

We hear a good deal about MongoDB Atlas, Azure's CosmosDB Document Database, and running MongoDB in your environment. However, less is said about how to compare the cost, upkeep, support and pain of running them.

In this talk, we will go through some of the features of each. This includes some of the common challenges in each. There is no perfect solution and you must consider things such as current cloud implementations, staff knowledge, available tooling and (most importantly) budget.

At the end of this talk, you should have a good grasp on how to build out primary and alternate plans when your projects move from development to critical, prime-time production.
