Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"like its performance and the stability. It's very stable and, performance-wise, it's really great.""In our case, it is most important to have redundancy.""Its flexibility, and cost. It is reasonably priced.""We can define security rules at the database level or the cluster level to grant or deny access to particular users.""The clustering is very good. It allows us to have high availability.""It stores historical data with ease. For example, if you are a healthcare member, then you will have multiple records of visits to the doctors. To store such data in Oracle Database, you have to create many records. You might also have duplication problems because your records are going in again and again, because of which the data warehouse and the maintenance cost will be huge. MongoDB is comparatively lightweight. It is a JSON extract. Once you define a schema and extract it, you can push all the relationships in any way you want. It is easier to define and get different types of transactions into MongoDB. It is also easier to set it up as compared to other solutions. MongoDB is a NoSQL database, which means it is a document DB in which you can store documents that you created in BSON. It is pretty fast in response. It is faster than relational databases because it does not define any primary keys, secondary keys, tertiary keys, and all those kinds of things.""MongoDB is extremely developer-friendly because when you are starting, there is very little time needed upfront in terms of planning.""One of the most valuable features is the ability to Text Search can be used anywhere and anytime."

"The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast.""For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments.""Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product.""Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed.""The feature I like best is performance. We use Red Tool and Red Job for the data warehouse and reporting. It's perfect. Performance is good, and it can return ad hoc queries very quickly. Of course, it's a cluster, so it's easy to scale.""Vertica has a few features that I like. From an architecture standpoint, they have separated compute and storage. So you have low-cost object storage for primary storage and the ability to have several sub-clusters working off the same ObjectStore. So it provides workload isolation.""I have found the solution to be scalable.""It has improved my organization's functionality and performance."

Cons
"I have found the solution difficult to operate as an administrator.""I think it would be good to have more search options such as an index resource. This will provide more options and resources to do advance searches.""They could improve the UI and the analytics part.""You need integration with other tools to run the query in MongoDB.""From my point of view, they need a totally free IDE to work at high levels.""MongoDB should be more stable, and support should be more efficient.""MongoDB should better support small and medium companies. There are a lot of clients out there that are interested, however, they need something lighter and less complex and something not so expensive upfront.""The stability could be improved."

More MongoDB Cons »

"Vertica offers a platform-as-a-service version, but their software-as-a-service solution is only available on AWS. They need to get a SaaS version on Azure and GCP as fast as possible.""The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""It's hard to make it slow for a small data volume. For large volumes, it's hard to make it work. It's also hard to make it faster, and to make it scale.""We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.""I have found that coding support could be simplified.""Support is an area where it could get better.""Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"MongoDB has a free version. You can also buy the enterprise edition, which is cheaper than Oracle.""It's a community edition, so we do not pay anything.""This is an open-source solution.""The solution is open source, so it is free.""There is an annual subscription for the use of this solution.""MongoDB is not expensive.""I don't know, but I have heard from people who procure it that it is much cheaper than Oracle.""Our customers pay for yearly licenses for MongoDB."

More MongoDB Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable.""The pricing could improve, it is a little expensive.""The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price.""From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors.""It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy."
