MongoDB’s CTO and Co-Founder, Eliot Horowitz, provides a comprehensive introduction to MongoDB in under 5 minutes.

If you watch this are concerned about the future of RDBMS databases, don’t be. Traditional databases are certainly not going anywhere and, of course, are not well suited for every situation.
