BadBolts Makes Climbing Safer Thanks to Rock-Solid Database Management

Long-time mLab customer Blake Bowling has launched numerous businesses using a DBaaS strategy. With more outdoor rock climbing safety bolts in need of replacement, Bowling, an avid climber, again turned to mLab to track all pertinent data and better maintain this equipment.

Case study highlights:

  • BadBolts got started using mLab's free Sandbox databases for rapid prototyping.
  • Because climbing bolts come with many (and sometimes unique) attributes, BadBolts depends on a non-relational database as the most appropriate and advantageous fit for this data.
  • Datasets allow for predictive maintenance, as the lifespans of bolts with similar attributes can be compared for proactively recognizing trouble spots.
