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 develo...

Fast, fast, fast, and agile

Very positive. I will likely use MongoDB on every future project of moderate to extreme complexity.

Pros

One of the most difficult parts of software development, especially with complex projects, is keeping the software maintained. As business requirement change, the effort required to make those changes grows over time. MongoDB opened up a whole new world for me. I can make structural changes to my underlying data with ease without too much modification the data access layer. It reduces initial development significantly, and allows my team to pivot to new requirements with unprecedented ease. Because related data is encapsulated, queries are much faster, and our software is extremely performant. Highly recommended.

Cons

The tooling isn't great. Compass is a decent tool for accessing and lookup, but it lacks polish. It's slow to start up and sometimes difficult to pull up the data I'm seeking

Reasons for Switching to MongoDB

First, the switch was experimental. Then, as the benefits unfolded, we knew MongoDB was a keeper.

MongoDB - The Best No-SQL Database!

I used MongoDB in a laboratory environment, adding access levels for users to access the data remotely. I also interacted with the database a lot and it was way easier to create and manage it. Furthermore, I never experienced a server-crash whilst accessing the data, which is fairly common for most other no-sql databases. Even-so, it just proves that it manages the memory well.

Pros

MongoDB has integrations with almost all computer languages used today, with even having an integration with Erlang (a very rarely used language). The drivers are easily available from open source contributors and works amazingly well. For a No-SQL database, it is amazingly well managed and easier to use in almost all other languages.

Cons

Its sort of confusing to manage the access control levels of the users, as it is all stored in json file. If there was a way to sort of make this process graphical or interactive, it would have reduced many access threats in a database.

Reasons for Choosing MongoDB

We all had first-hand experience with MongoDB and it seemed easier to use/setup than the other two databases.

Reasons for Switching to MongoDB

We felt CouchDB was sort of expensive in comparision to MongoDB in terms of features offered and the rate limits. Furthermore, CouchDB was difficult to use in a production environments for most of our researchers and students.

MongoDB - NoSQL database that perfroms and provide scalability at ease.

Excellent NoSQL database that beats the query speeds of RDBMS. In case one is having budgets to choosing a NewSQL databases would be wise choice. In all MongoDB wins on aggregation queries with even on billions of documents. One needs to spend enough time working with MongoDB queries to harness the power of aggregation thoroughly.

Pros

The speeds at which the aggregation queries are churned by the database cluster running on 8 GB virtual nodes.

Cons

The enterprise versions are pricey. The license cost is dependent on cluster sizes and data ingress costs are additional if the cluster spans a data center.

Reasons for Choosing MongoDB

MongoDB wins on aggregation queries with even on billions of documents.

Mongo allows you to take off easily, but makes it harder to do more advanced analysis.

Pros

-Easy Setup -Getting simple data in/out is painless & straightforward -Basic analytics are easy, as is managing multi-server clusters

Cons

-Working with complex data is a difficult. -Many original features or design choices were incorrect and slow to be corrected. For example, timezone support is minimal and days/dates/months use a custom numbering rather than ISO. Mongo is only now adding ISO versions of aggregation commands

Best no-sql database

My experience is very good, it works very fast, it is configured quickly, you can view and make queries from your software to see the data of your database. Making backups is very simple and integrates perfectly with our javascript development.

Pros

Very fast installation and use. It has very complete tools to manage you, such as the Mongo Compass or the possibility of having everything in your cloud with Mongo Atlas. The installation is very simple and the power of the tool is incredible and integrates perfectly with our system built in NodeJS. It has a very detailed documentation which facilitates its integration.

Cons

The main cons is that it does not have the possibility of making queries with JOINS but this is a limitation of NO-SQL databases

Reasons for Switching to MongoDB

We made the change since we needed to make a smaller service and we did not see the need to connect an sql base. With mongo we gain ease and speed
