Last night we held our first Yieldbot Tech Talks meetup, where we went into detail about the technologies that we use for data handling and storage in various parts of our platform.
MongoDB excelled as an initial choice of a flexible database that allowed for just getting stuff done and focusing on the million other things that need to be thought about when iterating around an initial idea. As our needs evolved in various areas of data we then transitioned to the best technologies and approaches for those specific cases. We now use (in addition to MongoDB) redis, ElephantDB, HBase, and our own DB technology called HeroDB that we use for configuration data.
Here are the slides:
