We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The technical evaluation is very good."
"The most valuable features are the counter features and the NoSQL schema. It also has good scalability. You can scale Cassandra to any finite level."
"The solution's database capabilities are very good."
"The time series data was one of the best features along with auto publishing."
"Some of the valued features of this solution are it has good performance and failover."
"It's easy to add and remove things in MongoDB. You can alter the tables. MongoDB is faster at reading, slower at writings."
"We can define security rules at the database level or the cluster level to grant or deny access to particular users."
"The community is great if you have problem."
"MongoDB is extremely developer-friendly because when you are starting, there is very little time needed upfront in terms of planning."
"I find the integration with other tools very easy."
"The most valuable feature is the geometric information done with GeoJSON."
"MongoDB has a simple data-loading interface."
"The most valuable feature is that you can store unstructured data, which is helpful when you don't know what the best structure should be and you cannot use a relational database because of that."
"Interface is not user friendly."
"Fine-tuning was a bit of a challenge."
"The disc space is lacking. You need to free it up as you are working."
"The solution doesn't have joins between tables so you need other tools for that."
"The solution is not easy to use because it is a big database and you have to learn the interface. This is the case though in most of these solutions."
"The transaction could use improvement. From MySQL, for example, you cannot create a transaction if you are reading and writing a document at the same time."
"Data encryption is possible using third-party tools but they should have their own encryption capability built-in to this solution."
"You need integration with other tools to run the query in MongoDB."
"MongoDB should not be used for reporting, analytics, or number-crunching tasks."
"Simplifying the aggregation framework would be an improvement."
"There should be better integration with other databases."
"The performance can be improved."
"The on-premises version of the solution is still pretty expensive, especially compared to the cloud version."
"We are using the Community Edition of MongoDB."
"It is rather expensive."
"MongoDB is an open-source solution."
"This is an open-source solution."
"We use the open-source version, which is available to use free of charge."
"I don't know, but I have heard from people who procure it that it is much cheaper than Oracle."
"MongoDB is not expensive."
"At the moment, all customers are using the community version."
Cassandra is ranked 3rd in NoSQL Databases with 5 reviews while MongoDB is ranked 1st in NoSQL Databases with 29 reviews. Cassandra is rated 8.4, while MongoDB is rated 8.2. The top reviewer of Cassandra writes "Great time series data feature but it requires third parties to join tables". On the other hand, the top reviewer of MongoDB writes "Good security, highly-available when installed in a cluster, and no schema is needed to store data". Cassandra is most compared with InfluxDB, Accumulo, Couchbase, Apache HBase and Neo4j, whereas MongoDB is most compared with InfluxDB, Scylla, Neo4j, Oracle NoSQL and SQream DB.
