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.

MongoDB Features

  • Supported: Comprehensive monitoring for full-performance visibility
  • Supported: Automated database management for 10-20x more efficient ops
  • Supported: Fully-managed backup for your peace of mind

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

In my organization, we use MongoDB as a temporary mid-size storage database. We have very large databases and process a massive amount of data per day. Throughout the day we identify notable events and records and need to extract them for continued analysis. This is where our MongoDB environment comes into play. We roll all of these detected records into MongoDB for further use.

We install it for a video-on-demand system (like Netflix) for Argentine productions (series, short films, and films). I participate in architecture design, MongoDB database environment creation, and their administration.

Oleg's MongoDB review

We use it as one of the internal database types in our REST APIs via a Spring/JAP connection in high-load applications. MongoDB is highly scalable, and compared to traditional SQL systems, reads and writes much faster than SQL. What is done on Mongo is as simple and clear as possible, and if there are problems with the amount of data in relational databases, such “bicycles” will have to be invented that will reduce all the advantages of these databases to zero. It’s probably hard to do an initially limited project on ordinary relational databases, that is, not to think about what will happen when everything is slowly covered up ... It’s better to devote more time to the design of the initial data, which will remove all questions in the future.

This tool has been used project-wise for the projects in which real-time data is used for analysis. We use this tool for fetching the comments on the products on social media to understand the sentiments of the end-user. The data is real-time and unstructured so we use this tool to make our work easy.

Currently I am using it for storing and analyzing the live stream data. This works very fast and can be used by creating our own personal data types. We are taking huge volume of data for storage and processing made is very easy. Just connect and analyze it's that easy.

MongoDB was our first NoSQL database usage. For this reason, we assigned it to an application that serves inside our IT infrastructure. As a result of our approximately 3-4 years of experience, we did not encounter any problems. It writes the data sent on it without any intervention and without any interruption, every second without stopping.

Used as a database solution for a web application for storing all data needed. That means all user details, application configuration and data created or managed by application's users is stored in MongoDB. It's used both by software developers for implementation purposes and also by support crew who maintain the application.

MongoDB is our primary database our application runs on. We use it intensively for our application development and data warehousing. I have used as a datawarehouse for analytics. It currently gets data from multiple dbs like mysql, app insights logs and other Mongo instances. I primarily use it for everyday metrics and analytics reporting

We use MongoDB as the main storage technology at the backend level for projects related to web development using the MEAN Stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS).

From a business point of view, the best features it provides are scalability and unstructured document storage, which allows us to have a flexible schema for the data.

So this the non-relational Database that we have internally. The reason for using this is because of the amazing scalability that this database provides and the JSON file format in which it tends to store the data that is present within it. Its opensource and that is the reason we have been using it internally to store the git hashes of the manifest since there are millions of them getting generated every month and we need a method to scale to that extent.

We use MongoDB at the heart of our application where speed and consistency are critical. It's used primarily by the engineering backend team and vicariously by other teams using parts of the product. It gives us the means to quickly iterate our data models with fewer painful migrations than we'd have with a traditional RDBMS and its JSON-like BSON object modeling maps nicely to our APIs.

We use MongoDB as a database for all web and mobile applications developed for our customers. It fully meets our needs. Reliable, handy, and robust, the support is of high quality. The installation on our servers is very easy. Its management and maintenance are easy and fast. MongoDB gives us satisfaction, and our customers are happy.

Our Denver Development team is using MongoDB in an application they wrote, and it's collecting big data associated with the application's users. A SQL Server was formerly capturing this type of data and that's not a great platform for big data. They set it up, configured it, and got it working, all I have to do is the administration work required by SOX.

MongoDB is currently being used to structure our databases and our primary querying tool. What is convenient about it is that you can change tables without writing lots of code. All data is stored in javascript, which is what all of our programmers use, so the gap between data analysis and our developers is lessened.

Using MongoDB as a potential solution for NoSQL data storage and quick application prototyping. It is an enterprise approved NoSQL solution. My investigation into the product and use of it is for innovation type activities.

I am using it for my software development back-end system. All of my programmers also use this for the same reason. Its's very latest and efficient platform for developing applications. We can easily learn it from its official website and understand quickly. very easy query languages are available on this system. So we can access this.

We use MongoDB in one of our major user facing applications designed to showcase the results and analysis of students' assessments. This portal is very complex and contains various views of similar data across different dimensions. MongoDB is used as the underlying DB to help us store and retrieve the myriad data ingested via different sources for our B2B reporting. It addresses one of the major issues of non-relational, async, hierarchical data structure of our streaming data source.

We also use it for few of our other business facing apps as well. They are all independent custom built apps using different front-end technologies.

At my previous company, we had a mix of SQL and NoSQL databases powering our web platform. When building my new company, we made the decision early to go with a primarily NoSQL database solution. MongoDB powers our web platform, internal tools, and anything else we create. Working with MongoDB is painless and our developers love it - particularly Javascript developers, of which we have many, as we use a lot of Node.js. MongoDB makes development easy and production reliable.

MongoDB was our main data store used primarily by a web application managing classical relational entities as well as some big data and analytics collection data. Even though no one on the team had much DB experience MongoDB was easy to use and integrate. However, we faced many pitfalls along the way and the end result was far from optimal.

MongoDB is a solution for our company's NoSQL database. It is currently used by a few departments in our company. Our company needs to store millions of records and needs them to be written and read fairly quickly and MongoDB came into our sight as we looked for solutions. So far we have deployed one cluster and it processes millions of records every day.
