Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

MongoDB is being used as a free-flowing document store for tax information.
  • Allows for free-flowing attributes
  • Scales easily
  • Improving with each release
  • Re-sharding can be cumbersome
MongoDB has been effective at allowing us to store de-normalized data.
  • While there has been a slight learning curve in our DBA group, MongoDB has proven to be a good choice for a document store.
Refactoring code can lead to more heartache than it's worth when looking at switching a datastore.
If you have a dataset that is not always consistent, consider storing it in MongoDB. If your data is normalized, it may not be the best solution.
