What is most valuable?

You can start quickly on projects which allow you to store many things.

How has it helped my organization?

In a previous company where I worked, we were able to use MongoDB as a pure data storage using the block storage mechanism for our clients.

What needs improvement?

I would like a more comprehensive dashboard. The UI can be difficult to understand. Going forward, we would like to have pure AWS Cloud (native) storage instead regular storage on the AWS integration side.

What other advice do I have?

We are always integrating this product with our business applications because it is a database. Without our applications, the product doesn't make sense. The integration is quite straightforward, because of the consistences within MongoDB… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

My advice is make developers understand NoSQL databases. For people coming from the SQL world, this is a new way to develop applications and that is the point to focus on. In the NoSQL world, MongoDB is a product that has a good awareness… more»

What is most valuable?

* As a user, it is very easy to use. There is nothing complicated. * We can write queries and go through it very quickly; our queries are quicker with it. * Many tools are there. Other companies are… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It enables us to get work done quickly and get to our data. It benefits us by providing performance.

What needs improvement?

The import and export process needs improvement, i.e., getting in and out. Moving data from other databases into MongoDB, along with indexing, was challenging. However, it has been improving. I would… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The purchasing process through the AWS Marketplace was very good.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it. It is better than the legacy databases, and it is very good with the cloud. We integrated it with TestRail and JIRA. Everything is on cloud. It integrates well, and we are happy… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was involved later on in the evaluation process when we were looking to import and export data out of MongoDB. We looked at MySQL, but we wanted to be on the cloud instead of managing our data on… more»

What is most valuable?

* Flexibility * An easy API * Its redundance: We have a cluster of three very solid instances, so its very reliable. * The integration went well and was lightweight.

How has it helped my organization?

* It has a flexible integration with our easy API. * It has a good, easy integration with other tools that we use for this product.

What needs improvement?

During the configuration, we did some migrations where we had to reindex about 70,000 indexes, which took around an hour. They should improve this and optimize the indexing.

What other advice do I have?

Look at what MongoDB can do for you in terms of database back-end persistence. I would recommend to look at this first before you start looking at other solutions. My company is interested in putting out products that are reliable for our… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate the product because I am on the operations side and the design was already done.

What is most valuable?

* Scalability is its most valuable feature, as it is pretty simple. * The maintenance is fairly easy. * It was easy and quick to market in terms of getting the application deployed rapidly.

What needs improvement?

The cost needs improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing could always be better.

What other advice do I have?

It is a great product. It works fine, so we recommend it. We are continuing to use and expand it. Right now, MongoDB is deployed for a very specific use case. However, it is something that we always consider when we are looking to migrate… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am sure that they evaluated other products, but it's been in deployment since I have been with the company. Therefore, I don't know if they looked at other types of databases at that time.

What is most valuable?

* Autoscaling * No overhead * No maintenance

How has it helped my organization?

It is nice because our developers create tables whenever they need to sync data. There are allocations nor DBAs. It is just use it as you need it.

What needs improvement?

We had some bad trainers when we first came onboard and would rate them fairly low. They did not seem staffed properly to fulfill the training services that they offered.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is good. We originally chose it over DynamoDB because of the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

I have been happy with the service. Everything is good. Though, nothing stands out to me as exceptional. I would encourage someone to look at DynamoDB, even though I am fine with MongoDB. If you are… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at DynamoDB from Amazon. However, it didn't have the features that we wanted from MongoDB. We chose MongoDB based on its pricing and features.

What is most valuable?

The speed of it is the most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

Our databases used to be in-house. Now, they are in the cloud with MongoDB and everything is much easier.

What needs improvement?

I would like a better dashboard. It could be made a bit more user friendly.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Our purchasing experience on the AWS Marketplace was great. We chose to go through the AWS Marketplace as a small team; my team selected it, and we consist of three people. The pricing and licensing… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend MongoDB. The integration and configuration of the product on the AWS environment is fine. We use the AWS version of this product. We also use WebEx, and it works well.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Cassandra, but we did not find it easy to use. This product was selected because it was easier to use and more user-friendly.

What is most valuable?

* High availability * Zero maintenance, to double up things.

How has it helped my organization?

It brought a lot of confidence to our team.

What needs improvement?

The cost needs improvement. The product is good, but the cost that we paid for it is expensive, so it wasn't that valuable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy and seamless. We chose the AWS Marketplace because it is a brand name and a popular product. It is too expensive. They need to work on this.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the product. I have only used the AWS version.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I also evaluated the open source version of this same product, but chose the AWS version for more reliability and enterprise support.

What is most valuable?

As a tester, it was easy to validate data, access data, make active run queries against it, and retrieve data from it.

How has it helped my organization?

It provided time saving for me. It provided an easy way to create validation against the database.

What needs improvement?

The UI application for MongoDB crashes a lot, so we would have to use a third-party plugin to make it work. It may have been improved by now.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend MongoDB. I would like to bring in MongoDB at my new company, though I doubt it will happen.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Right now, I'm using DynamoDB, and I preferred using MongoDB more.
