A new Solution Guide to implement MongoDB in IBM Power Systems running Linux featuring the new IBM POWER8 technology is available.
This white paper describes MongoDB (from humongous), which is an open source NoSQL style, document database with dynamic schema. The paper discusses the main features of the MongoDB solution, its architecture and implementation on IBM Power Systems running Linux. The target audience is users and system integrators who implement MongoDB on IBM Power Systems running Linux servers. No familiarity with MongoDB or IBM Power Systems running Linux is required; however, some familiarity with the basics of Linux commands is required.
- OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5
- MongoDB: 2.4.9 (ppc64 version)
- MongoDB configuration:
- Both mongod and mongo shell instances ran on the same server
- UNIX domain sockets was used as the communication method (also the default)
There are two ways in which users can install MongoDB on Power Systems running Linux:
- Install from prebuilt MongoDB binary files available from IBM.
- Build and install MongoDB binary files from the MongoDB source.
