Data Modeling for MongoDB: Building Well-Designed and by Steve Hoberman

By Steve Hoberman

Congratulations! You accomplished the MongoDB software in the given tight time frame and there's a occasion to have a good time your application's unlock into creation. even if individuals are congratulating you on the get together, you feel a few uneasiness inside of. to accomplish the venture on time required creating a lot of assumptions concerning the facts, comparable to what phrases intended and the way calculations are derived. additionally, the bad documentation in regards to the software can be of constrained use to the aid staff, and never investigating the entire inherent principles within the info may possibly finally result in poorly-performing buildings within the not-so-distant destiny.

Now, what if you happen to had a time computing device and will return and skim this publication. you are going to examine that even NoSQL databases like MongoDB require a few point of knowledge modeling.

Data modeling is the method of studying in regards to the information, and despite know-how, this method has to be played for a winning application. you are going to research the worth of conceptual, logical, and actual info modeling and the way each one degree raises our wisdom of the knowledge and decreases assumptions and terrible layout decisions.

Read this booklet to profit how you can do facts modeling for MongoDB functions, and attain those 5 objectives:

  1. Understand how info modeling contributes to the method of studying concerning the info, and is, for this reason, a required process, even if the ensuing database isn't relational. that's, NoSQL doesn't suggest NoDataModeling!
  2. Know how NoSQL databases fluctuate from conventional relational databases, and the place MongoDB fits.
  3. Explore every one MongoDB item and understand how every one compares to their facts modeling and standard relational database opposite numbers, and examine the fundamentals of including, querying, updating, and deleting information in MongoDB.
  4. Practice a streamlined, template-driven method of acting conceptual, logical, and actual facts modeling. realize that information modeling doesn't regularly need to result in conventional info models!
  5. Distinguish top-down from bottom-up improvement ways and entire a top-down case learn which ties the entire modeling thoughts together.

This e-book is written for someone who's operating with, or should be operating with MongoDB, together with company analysts, information modelers, database directors, builders, undertaking managers, and information scientists. There are 3 sections:

  • In part I, Getting Started, we'll exhibit the facility of information modeling and the tight connections to information types that exist whilst designing any kind of database (Chapter 1), evaluate NoSQL with conventional relational databases and the place MongoDB suits (Chapter 2), discover every one MongoDB item and understand how each one compares to their information modeling and standard relational database opposite numbers (Chapter 3), and clarify the fundamentals of including, querying, updating, and deleting information in MongoDB (Chapter 4).
  • In part II, Levels of Granularity, we disguise Conceptual facts Modeling (Chapter 5), Logical info Modeling (Chapter 6), and actual info Modeling (Chapter 7). realize the "ing" on the finish of every of those chapters. We specialize in the method of creating every one of those types, that is the place we achieve crucial enterprise wisdom.
  • In part III, Case Study, we are going to clarify either most sensible down and backside up improvement techniques and battle through a best down case learn the place we commence with company standards and finish with the MongoDB database. this situation learn will tie jointly the entire recommendations within the prior seven chapters.

Nike Senior info Architect Ryan Smith wrote the foreword. Key issues are incorporated on the finish of every bankruptcy for you to toughen suggestions. moreover, this ebook is loaded with hands-on workouts, besides their solutions supplied in App A. App B comprises the entire book’s references and App C the

Sample text

Key-value databases include Dynamo, Cache, and Project Voldemort. Column-oriented. Out of the four types of NoSQL databases, column-oriented is closest to the RDBMS. Both have a similar way of looking at data as rows and values. The difference, though, is that RDBMSs work with a predefined structure and simple data types, such as amounts and dates, whereas column-oriented databases, such as Cassandra, can work with more complex data types including unformatted text and imagery. This data can also be defined on the fly.

We can store all of these orders in one Order collection: From my relational experience, I am used to defining what the structure would look like first before populating it. For example, I would define the order attributes like orderNumber and orderShortDescription before loading any orders. In MongoDB however, you can define the structure and data at the same time. Having a “flexible schema” (also known as a “dynamic schema”) means incremental changes can be made to the database structure as easily as adding new data.

These types of discussions are often where the data modeler spends quite a bit of time. If the data modeler spends about 50% of our time organizing information, the other 50% can be spent working with different groups to come to consensus on terminology and definitions. I like to call this role of getting people to see the world the same way, or at least documenting their differences, as the role of Ambassador. So half the time we are Organizers and the other half we are Ambassadors – pretty important roles!
