by Gabriele Mittica
MongoDB is not just a database. Thanks to the GridFS, a smart and ready to use component, we can easily store and serve files (small and large) with our MongoDB collections. In this speech we'll see how to start with GridFS, and how to deploy and use a reliable storing service with MongoDB. Thanks to real examples and to a deep dive into GridFS's world, we'll discover a large set of possible solutions (from backup service to media hoster) easy to deploy for each MongoDB enthusiast!
