  • 37 MongoDB enables Gilt to roll out new revenue- generating features faster and cheaper Case Study Problem Why MongoDB Results • Monolithic Postgres architecture expensive to scale • Limited ability to add new features for different business silos • Spiky server loads • Dynamic schema makes it easy to build new features • Alignment with SOA • Cost-effective, horizontal scaling • Easy to use and maintain • Developers can launch new services faster, e.g., customized upsell emails • Stable, sub-ms performance on commodity hardware • Reduced complexity yields lower overhead
  • 38 Serves variety of content and user services on multiple platforms to 7M web and mobile users Case Study Problem Why MongoDB Results • MySQL reached scale ceiling – could not cope with performance and scalability demands • Metadata management too challenging with relational model • Hard to integrate external data sources • Unrivaled performance • Simple scalability and high availability • Intuitive mapping • Eliminated 6B+ rows of attributes – instead creates single document per user / piece of content • Supports 115,000+ queries per second • Saved £2M+ over 3 yrs. • “Lead time for new implementations is cut massively” • MongoDB is default choice for all new projects
  • 39 Delivers agile automated supply chain service to retailers powered by MongoDB Case Study Problem Why MongoDB Results • RDBMS poorly- equipped to handle varying data types (e.g., SKUs, images) • Inefficient use of storage in RDBMS (i.e., 90% empty columns) • Complex joins degraded performance • Document-oriented model less complex, easier to code • Single data store for structured, semi-structured and unstructured data • Scalability and availability • Analytics with MapReduce • Decreased supplier onboard time by 12x • Grew from 400K records to 40M in 12 months • Significant cost reductions on schema design time, ongoing developer effort, and storage usage
  • 40 Social e-commerce application built on MongoDB offers 100M+ products from over 30K brands Case Study Problem Why MongoDB Results • MySQL could not accommodate growth • Significant optimization required to tune MySQL performance • Database maintenance inhibited development • Flexible data model to handle varying product attributes • Scalability for global reach • Ease of maintenance • Consistent performance even when adding data and new features • Boosted developer productivity • Scaled from 5M to 100M products with minimal work • Decreased product import time by 90%
