MongoHQ @ AWS re:Invent


The Line Up

AWS re:Invent kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas. Tuesday starts with Hackathon and Gameday events. Wednesday through Friday is anything but standard conference presentations, with an impressive lineup of world class industry experts that include: Stephan Orban, Global CTO of Dow Jones; Mike Curtis, VP of Engineering at Airbnb; and Dr. Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon Web Services.

The talk we anticipate bringing the heat is PetaMongo: A Petabyte Database for as Little as $200. Miles Ward from AWS and Christopher Biow from MongoDB will demonstrate the creation and teardown of a petabyte-scale multiregion MongoDB NoSQL database cluster using Amazon EC2 Spot Instances, for as little as $200 in total AWS cost.
