Hudl Chooses MongoDB

January 19, 2014

MongoDB announced that Hudl, a sports software startup, is using MongoDB as the data store for its online video analysis platform.

In a release, the Company noted that the platform, used by coaches, athletes and recruiters, offers secure access to video analysis tools from any computer or mobile device.

Hudl selected MongoDB for video metadata storage.

"Rather than partitioning SQL, we decided to invest in horizontal scale for the long term," said Brian Kaiser, CTO at Hudl. "MongoDB makes it so easy to add shards that we don't require a large capital expenditure to upgrade, which is great from a predictability point of view. Together with Amazon's Provisioned IOPS, MongoDB delivers remarkably stable query.

"MongoDB is painless for developers and has proven to be battle- tested for the web-based video analysis that Hudl requires. We appreciate having a strong company that backs the product with great support and a high level of innovation."
