What is MongoDB?

MongoDB (from "humongous") is an open source document-oriented database system developed and supported by 10gen. It is part of the NoSQL family of database systems. Instead of storing data in tables as is done in a "classical" relational database, MongoDB stores structured data as JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster.

According to the vendor, organizations from cutting-edge startups to the largest companies use MongoDB to create applications never before possible at a fraction of the cost of legacy databases. The vendor says MongoDB is the fastest-growing database ecosystem, with over 10 million downloads, thousands of customers, and over 1,000 technology and service partners.

This is pretty cost-effective and with a single license multiple users can log in to it.

If any latest version is launched then the upgrade happens automatically without hampering the API's connections with the other tools.

Their tech support is also very good and they resolve any technical issues very smoothly. We are using it with same platform and it is solving our business problem.

As a front-end-focused full-stack developer, MongoDB enables me to shift my work to the front end, instead of focusing on complex mapping for relational databases. I will always prefer this solution for development, and in those cases where it's sufficient, in production as well.

We're likely to continue using MongoDB for several reasons. On one hand, we've invested heavily in this database and it would be a painful costly process to translate our complex set of models to an alternative. On the other hand, we continue to be happy with MongoDB for its reliability and the pace at which this tool has evolved. We have confidence in MongoDB's ability to evolve and improve going forward.

Once you go the no-SQL route it is very difficult to undo that route. There are other options in the industry that we may consider also including Amazon Dynamo DB. We have considered converting our no-SQL schema to a traditional RDBMS-based email but have found the halfway from here to there very arduous and perhaps not having an ROI that we expected.

This is still a new product, but I believe there is so much potential here. The interface is good and the technical support isn't all quite there yet, but in a few years, this will be a mature product and will be a real contender in the database market. It uses Nosql language, which is easy to learn, and that's a huge plus when using a new product.

Right now we are using the community edition of MongoDB but if we deploy to production we will certainly go with the enterprise edition.

It is one of my favorite database tool compared with others. So that I will give nine stars. We can use it in many places. for example, mobile apps, IoT devices, big data. In rapid application development, It's a very good back end tool. And also a very secure and safe tool for software development.

We grow to love MongoDB more and more every day. We've been able to scale effectively, we've learned it well enough to avoid any pitfalls, and ultimately it just works! We will continue to use MongoDB for our current projects as well as new projects going forward. While we, of course, have use cases where SQL or other database types are necessary, MongoDB is the backbone of all of our projects.

From a DevOps engineer's view, MongoDB is easy to set up. That is one thing I like about MongoDB. The cluster is also easy to configure. I did not encounter many troubles in the process. MongoDB also has a wonderful management tool called Ops Manager. It is a standby server that monitors the whole MongoDB cluster. You can get all the information you need about your cluster from Ops Manager. It is a very useful tool.

I think it is the best NoSQL family database with lots of amazing features available. Shifting to the new database will need consideration of a few things like learning, scalability, availability of the data etc. As I don't see any other database that will serve my purpose better than MongoDB, I should keep using this only.

We are less likely to continue using MongoDB under the hood of our applications with Amazon's announcement of DocumentDB, though MongoDB's Atlas platform is another good choice for deploying existing MongoDB applications. For situations that it is well suited for, we'll continue to use Mongo, especially for the availability of its third-party ecosystem applications like Mongoose.

There is no "very strong" reason why we will renew it. Our project is a big data project, for which we used MongoDB to load and store genomics sequencing data in it. Once it sets up, it is hard to move to another place, unless there is a serious problem in the system or strong motivation to move. MongoDB is a well developed and already qualified product in the market and quite a safe choice. We will move forward in using it as our project scales up.

Mongo doesn't cost us much to use, so we have no reason to assess the cost. In terms of functionality, it gives us exactly what we want in terms of easily storing and accessing large amounts of unstructured data. We plan to increase our usage of Mongo because it has proven to be very effective and performant.

MongoDB is one of the most famous non-relational databases in the world, there are famous active projects that use this database. I think that the same company that develops the database gives you the online induction totally free is something that really is very positive. Accounts with a first-class support to be able to relate the correct implementation of the database, in addition to teaching you the best practices to optimize your projects, I believe that with this decision it is more than obvious which is the best decision at the time of seeing with which database to work.

It's a great product. Thing is, there are so many others out there. Would be great to try something new if I were to do another project that needed a similar solution to this same problem. One I had in mind was Cassandra, which looks like a solid option. Branching out to new tech is always great!
