Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

MongDB is used as a JSON document database for our organization and it's currently being implemented as we speak and it mainly addressed our speed problem.
  • Faster, more speed
  • Much more efficient
  • Pluggable storage engine API
  • Keep in mind if you're updating a user's social data that means going through all of the activity streams, which is error prone.
  • No backing of store behind cache means inconsistent data.
  • Not flexible with querying (i.e no JOIN).
  • Improved speed
  • Schema-less
  • Allow us to scale out easily
MongoDB provides better performance on a big database. If you prefer to define indexes rather than a map/reduce function, MongoDB is good for you. It's quick to start it up and very easy to learn, basically no entry barrier. MongoDB's community is very welcoming.

Not much to say but MongoDB is a somewhat efficient database than other databases I've seen.
