MongoDB

Mongo DB is better placed in large projects, with great scalability. It also allows you to work quite comfortably with projects based on programming languages such as javascript angular typescript C #. I believe that its performance is much better with the type of technologies that handle very logical, similar terms of programming. If we use languages like java php, for example, it is better to work with relational databases like postgres or mySql. Since this type of technology allows you to work better with database management frameworks much more agile for these environments, such as JPA, HIBERNATE, Oracle, I think they are much better with this type of architecture and programming languages.

Prometheus

I would say that every organization should definitely start using Prometheus for monitoring as long as it is a small environment with less than 1000 nodes. I haven't tried it with more nodes, but I have heard that if you have a bigger infrastructure, better shift to something better than Prometheus.

Pros

MongoDB

  • Easy to learn. When I picked up MongoDB for the first time, I had little background in database management or modeling. If you have a background in javascript (and JSON)... then you can figure out how to use MongoDB pretty fast.
  • Fast performance.
  • It's relatively easy to set up in certain environments because there are lots of ready-made solutions out there.
  • There's a lot of support in the existing ecosystem for it —, especially in the node.js realm.
  • Query syntax is pretty simple to grasp and utilize.
  • Aggregate functions are powerful.
  • Scaling options.
  • Documentation is quite good and versioned for each release.

  • Inbuilt database.
  • Amazing visualization.

Cons

MongoDB

  • I love the idea of Map-Reduce native support in MongoDB. Admittedly I have not used it as much as I would like -- it always seems to trip me up.
  • Recent additions to the aggregation queries have helped reduce (no pun intended) my need to better wield the weapon that is Map-Reduce.

Prometheus

  • Need to extend its support.

This is a very convenient "go to" database for application CRUD operations. So many applications need to create, read, update, and delete records. Here's the trick though - as a product changes, the data does as well. Having a database that makes this process easy and avoids the need to manage a schema and migrations is extremely valuable.MongoDB may not be the tool for every need but it is often always a tool that gets used for some need or another.

I'm not a database expert by any means. But MongoDB has helped lower the barrier to entry in the world of full stack development. It has an expressive and easy to understand syntax and API. Additionally, their documentation is really quite detailed and easy to follow. Anyone with javascript experience should be able to work with it.

I never had problems with the application. It complies with all the characteristics that the company specifies with this product.

While the setup and configuration of MongoDB is pretty straight forward, having a vendor that performs automatic backups and scales the cluster automatically is very convenient. If you do not have a system administrator or DBA familiar with MongoDB on hand, it's a very good idea to use a 3rd party vendor that specializes in MongoDB hosting. The value is very well worth it over hosting it yourself since the cost is often reasonable among providers.

Alternatives Considered

MongoDB

MongoDB was the most full-featured NoSQL database we evaluated - that offered atomic transactions at a document level, built-in HA & DR, open source, robust queries, and enterprise level support.Other platforms had specific parts of what we were looking for - MongoDB had it all.

Prometheus

If you combine Prometheus with Grafana, what you get is just amazing. it is basically the best ecosystem that I have seen. Grafana just makes those fancy "iron man" kind of dashboards and it just looks so appealing to your eyes. I have implemented Nagios Core earlier for monitoring and I would say I still prefer Prometheus than Nagios since the flexibility that it provides and the ease with which it can be setup.

Return on Investment

MongoDB

  • Much faster development time.
  • Price is fantastic compared to MSSQL when you consider OS costs and the entire package.
  • Only negative to me is the lack of DBA skills for it, due to it being a new player in the field. I feel like that will get better as time moves on however.

Prometheus

  • It's free, but overall positive.
  • Just view the dashboard in the morning and you know everything about your system.
