About MongoDB

MongoDB is a cloud-based and on-premise distributed database management system designed to help small to large organizations store data in JSON format and perform read and write query operations to sort data based on multiple field types. Features include text/geo-based search, sharding, replication, data visualization, collaboration and backup management. The platform enables developers to access and analyze data using ad hoc queries, indexing and data aggregation in real-time. Using MongoDB Atlas, professionals can handle and recover deployments across multiple cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure and more. Businesses can adjust size, memory or storage capacity of database clusters based on the utilization of resources. It also enables developers to respond to do...

Agrxis Review on MongoDB

My time using MongoDB has been excellent. MongoDB has become my go-to database choice because I work with data a lot. I have been able to handle a variety of rapidly changing data requirements with ease thanks to its flexibility and scalability. I like the document-based paradigm since it fits my data's dynamic nature nicely. I've been able to swiftly adapt and iterate thanks to the ability to store and query data in a schema-less manner. It has never been easier to obtain and analyze data effectively because to MongoDB's robust query language and indexing capabilities. My development process has been sped up by the easy connection with well-known programming languages and frameworks, allowing me to concentrate on creating strong and feature-rich applications. Along the road, any problems I met into were also greatly helped by the active community and thorough documentation. As a result, MongoDB has significantly changed the way I work with data by giving me access to a dependable, scalable, and adaptable database solution that meets all of my requirements.

PROS

MongoDB's unmatched flexibility and scalability are what I liked best about it. MongoDB has changed the game for me as someone who deals with continually evolving data formats and requirements. The document-based architecture enables me to store data in a manner that closely resembles the entities and connections seen in the real world, making it highly intuitive and simple to use. The dynamic schema gives me the flexibility I need to iterate quickly by allowing me to modify and develop my data model without being constrained. MongoDB's extraordinary capacity to scale has proven invaluable in helping me manage increasing data volumes and high-performance applications with ease. With MongoDB, I have the flexibility to scale horizontally with sharding or vertically with replica sets to match my changing demands. Additionally, data retrieval and analysis are now a snap because to the robust query language, numerous indexing options, and aggregation architecture.

CONS

If I had to pick one thing about MongoDB that I disliked the least, it would be the steep learning curve that comes with its sophisticated capabilities and intricate setups. MongoDB is a strong and feature-rich database that offers a variety of capabilities that may take some time and work to completely understand and efficiently use.

Great data storage solution with space for improvement

Using MongoDB for years, mostly as local storage in docker containers. Latest project is based on cloud solution.

PROS

I like the Atlas Cloud solution. It enables various tricks and cross-integrations of single database between multiple apps (containers) with simple user management - for a reasonable price.

CONS

I cannot get over this Atlas Compass UX issue - I want to open at least two "tabs" with collections at the same time. This is not possible and even worse, when you switch between collections, thee state is completely reset. So I'm compiling the search query carefully with all the commas, brackets and identifiers, I often need to search for ID from another collection or maybe from the same collection. When i change collection scope -> BAM! The whole query is gone :( The input should retain its actual value... Second "issue": When it comes to schema changes in living DB, sometimes it behaves unexpectedly (no error, no data). Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I would like to know it...

Reason for choosing MongoDB

Document orientation, cloud feature, high security, price

Reasons for switching to MongoDB

Terrible security.

Cheap Mongo DB

Built several multi-node clusters for data warehousing for ETL tools. Had a lot of issues early on to get it working. Documentation 2 years ago + was spotty but now its a lot better. Not to mention the software has evolved to include features sorely missing awhile back. We moved away from thsi product as it doesnt allow backups as robust as MSSQL and oracle but its great for certain types of data needs.

PROS

Can use a free version of it. And does allow clustering of it inclusive.

CONS

Compass client tool is useless versus other DB software tools. Pretty much all cli based access ot the collections within

Reason for choosing MongoDB

3rd party software only supported this at the time. We have since moved away from that 3rd party software and this platform.

The best DBMS for unstructured data

PROS

The ease of use and the community behind the product. It’s always growing and there are a ton of resources on the web.

CONS

The ACL handling is not as easy as it should be, but this could be a subjective point of view.

Java developer on MongoDB.

PROS

MongoDB is for me the top database for microservices applications. It scales great and is easy to use. It has many integrations with popular programming languages. It is easy to configure it for heavy loads.

CONS

It is a NoSQL database by which it can be a certain entry threshold for beginners. Correctly selecting and setting up indexes can be a problem.

Reason for choosing MongoDB

MongoDB was simpler and just good enough for our use case.

Reasons for switching to MongoDB

We moved away from the amazon platform.
