  • Faceted Search with MongoDB: Faceted search, or faceted navigation, is a way of browsing and searching for items in a set of data by applying filters on various properties (facets) of the items in the collection. Faceted search makes it easy for users to navigate to the specific item or items they are interested in. It complements more free-form keyword search by facilitating exploration and discovery and is therefore useful when a user may not know the specific keywords they wish to search on.

Why did we Go with Go?

The Backup Service started as a Java project, but as the project matured, the team wanted to move to a language that compiled natively on the machine. After considering a few options, the team decided that Go was the best fit for its C-like syntax, strong standard library, the resolution of concurrency problems via goroutines, and painless multi-platform distribution.
