It has a new storage engine and Ops Manager, and those two things change a huge number of the aspects of how people interact, what kinds of applications you can use with Mongo and how it fits into enterprises," MongoDB co-founder and CTO Eliot Horowitz said.
According to MongoDB, for write-intensive applications WiredTiger, which it acquired in January, is seven to 10 times faster than the old engine, with an industry-standard 80 percent compression rate and improved memory-management features.
"It's a much more advanced storage engine that really changes the kinds of applications that use MongoDB. In the most write-intensive applications, the most mission-critical situations, you'll have the performance and the predictability," Horowitz said.
You really need the operational tooling to help you scale that out easily, to be able to manage very effectively at very large scale," Horowitz said.
But it is fully supported and it's going to be recommended for a lot of use cases, if not almost all of them," Horowitz said.
Horowitz said doing a rolling migrate from engine to the other is relatively easy using replica sets.
"You've always been able to have a very large number of replica sets, and we've increased the number of nodes in a replica set from 12 to 50 for people who want a lot of copies of data and with a very high replication factor for distribution," Horowitz said.
