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...

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 is the goto datatbase for any solution

Great, greatest

Pros

The ease of use. JSON type document helps me to scale my database model as the application is growing. Along with the powerful query language of MongoDB it's so easy to pull data from the data. MongoDB also gives free 500MB is space without giving any credit card and I found that very awesome!

Cons

I would like to see the compass getting more powerful and having many more features.

Reasons for choosing MongoDB

Because of more developer trust in this project.

Reasons for switching to MongoDB

Because of the availability of an easy-to-use cloud with zero setups.

MongoDB For Speed

Thanks to its multi-language support, it provides access and programming support in different languages. It is a flexible database. It can be used to process very large data. It provides very fast feedback in terms of performance. It has an easy to manage and easy query language.

Pros

Are the restrictive features of all classical databases hindering your goals? Then I suggest you try MongoDB. We get much more efficient and faster results in my personal projects that I started for social support projects. You can see the results when you compare the performances you get in the trial version. Multi-language support and programming solution are also extremely important. Being open source also makes it scalable.

Cons

You will need a lot of query techniques and software for relational databases or your queries. Data duplication can be multiple.

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

Reasons 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.

Review for MongoDB

My overall experience with MongoDB is outstanding and I get what I need from MongoDB. I recommend to used MongoDB for database management.

Pros

The most liked part about MongoDB is that it is free to use a tool for databases and suitable tools for developers. MongoDB is a good tool for developers to run the query.

Cons

The least liked part about MongoDB is that it does not use a relational database. It is straightforward to understand the database and flow.
