Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

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.
  • NoSQL
  • Scalability
  • Readable queries
  • Opensource
  • None so far, but security issues have occurred
  • Just positive, easy operations.
I would say Cassandra is better than MongoDB since it has the backing of Facebook to it. Its inherent properties like versioning put it into the other category of columnar databases, but it's one of the NoSQL databases which you should definitely consider for your organization if you are sure to grow to millions and above.
Its free the way we are using it right now.
So if you need a highly available database, which you can rely on since it has inbuilt replication and JSON format message, then MongoDB is the best way to go for it. It follows BASE if the databases are inconsistent if you are scaling over a large system. What it means is that it is not suitable for storing passwords. For that, make sure that you use ACID databases which are relational.
