Apollo Group Evaluates MongoDB

The Apollo Group is the company behind University of Phoenix. It recently conducted a thorough evaluation of MongoDB and published the results. The paper is included below, but Apollo Group outlined the following keys for successfully deploying to MongoDB:

  • The key to MongoDB performance is thoughtful data model design.
  • Design the deployment to match data usage.
  • MongoDB is a great match for cloud-based, on-premise, and hybrid deployments.
  • MongoDB has excellent availability.
  • Latency between different Amazon EC2 Availability Zones within the same EC2 Region is very low.
  • At 85% CPU utilization, the behavior of MongoDB changes, and performance levels off.

Overall, this is a great approach to follow when you’re evaluating new technology, not just MongoDB.
