Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

I am a student. I have been using mongoDB in my academic projects and in my internship projects as well. I am pursuing my masters in software engineering and we use mongoDB entirely for every project that we do. In my internship at Ingram Micro Ltd. I did one project where the backend was on mongoDB.
  • Store metadata - Mongodb is best to use when we have to deal with a huge amount of metadata.
  • Scalability - MongoDB does scale well in comparison to other document specific databases.
  • Data handling - It manages data in documents.
  • It's a bit hard to learn and code using mongoDB.
  • No specific UI for management of a database.
  • KairosDB
I have used KairosDB, Cassandra and MySQL and mongodb proves out to be the best of them. Mainly due to it being a document-oriented database.
Cassandra, MySQL, Eclipse Luna, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
Mainly because of it is free to use and has an active community of users and developers.
It is well suited when you need ease of scalability. When you need more complex queries to query your database mongodb is less appropriate.
