Chicago MongoDB User Group Message Board › Looking for a MongoCF expert
I have a stock market trading application which currently stores
market data in flat files, thru a nightly download and parsing job.
Our flash application is currently under development and will stream
stock tick data into the users browser.
The current flat file architecture is not very scalable and does not
meet our speed requirements. We want to make this application as fast
as humanly possible when it comes to data load times when users switch
symbols (ie., from MSFT to IBM)
The size of the downloaded files is about 6GB nightly; however after parsing is complete, we store about 400mb. This download and parsing process is currently a java process using a scheduler app
of some kind.
Our flash developer is a coldfusion guy and wants to directly hit our
datastore using coldfusion. Therefore, we are looking for someone who
has a strong handle on coldfusion and mongo and specifically the
MongoCF adapter. We need someone to look under the hood and suggest
and architecture and help us implement it. This will include creating
a scalable, speedy install of MONGOCF and workign with our developer
to make sure that you are both on the same page as to how he is
supposed to call the data most efficiently. It will also include
migration of our existing data from flat files into our Mongo db and
finally modifying our java downloading and parsing process to write to
Let me know if you are interested in this project.
