Fantastic integrations, with multiple support levels

What is our primary use case?

Our use case for MongoDB Atlas is not an as an RDBMS. It is a NoSQL database which means that it's not like a traditional database such as Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server. It's a NoSQL database, and it is much easier to manage. The scalability is very high, the performance is very high, and the cost is lower as compared to the traditional database for cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The features that I have found most valuable include the very easy integrations. The integrations are fantastic. I have not faced any challenges from the integration standpoint."
  • "I am still new with it, but since I mentioned that I'm using this product for only the last six months and my experience with this product is good thus far, on a scale of one to ten, I would give MongoDB Atlas a six."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend MongoDB Atlas to be used by other people, because this is the current technology which everyone should use. I am still new with it, but since I mentioned that I'm using this product for only the last six months and my experience with this product is good thus far, on a scale of one to ten, I would give MongoDB Atlas a six.

Flexible, easy to scale, maintenance-free, and works well as a document store

What is our primary use case?

MongoDB can be used for many things. It's a document store, so you can add whatever collection you need to it. We use it for an application that we've built. My team is not using it at this time, although other teams in the company may be.

What is most valuable?

The cloud-based nature of this solution makes it flexible and scalable. I like the fact that you can make the deployment bigger, as needed. Not having to maintain it yourself is good.

What needs improvement?

Querying a dataset is not very intuitive, so I think that it can be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using MongoDB Atlas for approximately two years, although I am not using it for my current project.

What is our primary use case?

We use MongoDB Atlas for our MongoDB deployments.

What is most valuable?

What needs improvement?

Masterless architecture for linear scale.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

MongoDB Atlas is a reliable and stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

From the scalability point of view, when we shard the database it creates a replica set of each shard and that will increase the cost. Also, It will be a pain if we just start with Atlas and then moved to manage our own databases. Basically to support three shards you have to…
