MongoDB

Database management and application development software

About MongoDB

MongoDB is a database management software that is designed for organizations in several industry segments, including media, technology, healthcare, retail, hospitality, telecommunications, finance, education, energy, and public services. It helps developers build applications and utilize the built-in tools to visualize, manipulate, and analyze data.

MongoDB enables administrators to provide a secure user experience by setting up role-based access rights, dedicated firewalls, authorization protocols, and transport layer security (TLS) based encryption. The data explorer allows staff members to run queries, monitor index usage, access collections metadata, and interact with data. The charts module lets team members create visual graphs and assemble and share dashboards with co-workers to facilitate collaboration across activities.

MongoDB comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions such as Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, and Qlik. MongoDB Atlas allows developers to build deployment clusters by defining usage region, instance size, and memory requirements across several cloud providers, including AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

MongoDB is the NoSQL leader and getting better

Reviewed on 2019/02/09

The first decision about whether to use MongoDB or not is whether you need a relational or non-relational DB. Once you decide a non-relational is best for you project, then MongoDB is a solid choice. It has the ongoing support of a professional team and is widely used in the market, especially for projects utilizing the MEAN stack. This makes it easier to deploy than other solutions.

Pros

MongoDB is incredibly easy to set up and use. The fact that non-relational DBs are better for more unstructured data, makes it so that you don't necessarily have to know exactly what the end state is going to be before building your schema. Its data throughput is also a key differentiator, so anything with Big Data is going to be a good fit for a non-relational DB and MongoDB, in particular. Finally, the team behind MongoDB is constantly improving the product and releasing updates, and there are several good data viewers in the market, including one from Mongo, for viewing the data and creating queries.

Cons

Creating metrics dashboards can be challenging due to the potential need for JOIN queries in your data. Anything that contains these will be harder to aggregate. Their aggregation framework can be hard to use and limiting for certain requirements.

MongoDB is an excellent choice for developers looking for a powerful, scalable, and reliable database solution. While the initial setup and learning curve can be challenging, the benefits of MongoDB's document-oriented data model and robust query language make it an ideal choice for many different types of applications.

Pros

MongoDB is highly reliable and offers unparalleled scalability. With its robust query language and powerful document-oriented data model, MongoDB is capable of handling complex data management tasks with ease. Additionally, MongoDB offers excellent support for developers, with a range of tools and services for managing databases.

Cons

Although MongoDB is a powerful tool, it can be difficult to set up, and the learning curve can be steep. Additionally, MongoDB's lack of support for joins, transactions and some data types can be a challenge for more complicated applications.

A NoSQL Database using MongoDB

Reviewed on 2023/11/08

Pros

MongoDB is a well-known choice for NoSQL Database and it can be used for free as well. Perfectly suited for a personal project or small project because we don't have to pay anything.

Cons

One thing that I feel annoyed about is the IP whitelist requirement in order to access the Database. Because my IP is dynamic it will be changing the address each time, I access the Database.

MongoDB - The Best No-SQL Database!

I used MongoDB in a laboratory environment, adding access levels for users to access the data remotely. I also interacted with the database a lot and it was way easier to create and manage it. Furthermore, I never experienced a server-crash whilst accessing the data, which is fairly common for most other no-sql databases. Even-so, it just proves that it manages the memory well.

Pros

MongoDB has integrations with almost all computer languages used today, with even having an integration with Erlang (a very rarely used language). The drivers are easily available from open source contributors and works amazingly well. For a No-SQL database, it is amazingly well managed and easier to use in almost all other languages.

Cons

Its sort of confusing to manage the access control levels of the users, as it is all stored in json file. If there was a way to sort of make this process graphical or interactive, it would have reduced many access threats in a database.

Alternatives Considered

Redis Enterprise

Reasons for Choosing MongoDB

We felt CouchDB was sort of expensive in comparision to MongoDB in terms of features offered and the rate limits. Furthermore, CouchDB was difficult to use in a production environments for most of our researchers and students.

Reasons for Switching to MongoDB

We all had first-hand experience with MongoDB and it seemed easier to use/setup than the other two databases.
