Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

We're using MongoDB for a new pilot project. We want to use it in the future for more production projects. At the moment the main goal is to manage a transactional database for gaming using MongoDB and its main features like replica set and sharding and clusters and so on. It is the perfect database to do that because of its document store engine, that uses json documents and stored bson files. It's great for his schemaless structure and so on.
  • Schemaless
  • Sharding
  • Replica sets
  • Indexing
  • Performance
  • JSON
  • Of course there is no IDE, like SQL Server
  • Need some extra work to administer and set up
  • No sql, of course
I like the schemaless database and the capability to directly manage directly JSON documents. It's great for our services/front end/client and all the software to talk directly with a JSON mode and store it in a database, and then query it.
  • Better operation management
  • Less initial cost
  • Less hardware needs
MongoDB is document oriented, and fits our goals best.
Powerful and great combining with replica sets.
MongoDB is well suited for document store, linear scalability and schema flexibility. The rich query and indexing functionality are great. No sql support, so it's not so appropriate for a "relational" software, which needs something like - for example- the support of a relational classic db like Sql Server, my sql and so on. A strong consistency model and open source does the rest.
