MongoDB stock sinks 13% after Amazon encroaches on its turf — but an analyst says that MongoDB has two secret weapons (MDB, AMZN)

MongoDB stock closed 13% down after Amazon Web Services announced its own rival DocumentDB. Analysts say this needs to be taken seriously because of Amazon's scale and reach — but it's too early to tell if it will affect MongoDB in the long term. MongoDB has two key advantages more capabilities and a loyal developer following — so loyal that when Microsoft offered a competing database called CosmosDB, it had little impact on MongoDB. MongoDB's stock was down 13% at the close of the first d...

AWS Re:Invent 2018 Reflects An Industry Coming Of Age

As a first take, the 2018 AWS Re:Invent conference event held in Las Vegas seemed to be slicker, even though bigger, than previous years. While conference sessions were far too distributed across multiple hotels to feed a coherent view, the big-barn expo exuded a feeling of knowing what it was about. Even the smallest vendors had stands which went beyond the lowest-common-denominator quick-assembly cube, suggesting either (a) the organisers had put more thought into it or (b) the vendors were be...

The hybrid cloud involves managing workloads on premises and in the cloud, while private clouds are ones that companies run themselves, either in their own data centers o...
