Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The solution is very powerful.""The most valuable features are aggregating the data and integration with Graphana for monitoring."

More InfluxDB Pros »

"Scalability seems good. I've never been even close to finding the limits. I've run a couple of notes of redundancy but I've never had any problems with scalability.""We haven't had any issues with stability.""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."

"The solution doesn't have much of a user interface.""The error logging capability can be improved because the logs are not very informative."

More InfluxDB Cons »

"More stable indexes would be helpful in a future release. That's been an issue for some time. I don't know if it's been fixed now but we transitioned to it because we needed a search index to be able to search for things and if that goes or starts disappearing, we have to move away from that solution. I don't know if they fixed it, last time I had this issue was three years ago so they might have solved it.""We find it difficult to incorporate MongoDB in some projects.""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."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The solution is very powerful.
Top Answer: The solution doesn't have much of a user interface. The integration of Chronograf and Capacitor is not so good. They could work to make it better.
Top Answer: I primarily use the solution for database storage.
Top Answer: SQreamDB is a GPU DB. It is not suitable for real-time oltp of course. Cassandra is best suited for OLTP database use cases, when you need a scalable database (instead of SQL server, Postgres)… more »
Top Answer: MongoDB has a simple data-loading interface.
