I don’t usually quote PR announcements, but this one created quite a bit of buzz:
MongoDB manages the intercommunity data exchange that enables users to call and text with each other. Each time a Viber user connects a cell phone to the network, MongoDB receives call-related information. Viber has been using MongoDB on Amazon Web Services (AWS) since early 2011, and its deployment has grown to 130 nodes in under six months. […] “In under a year, we’ve added over 18 million active users who talk on Viber for more than 11 million minutes every day, and MongoDB is core to our ability to scale operations as activity fluctuates.
These are very impressive numbers and I hope Viber Media will start sharing more details about their experience with MongoDB. Meanwhile you can get ready by learning more about running MongoDB on the Cloud.
