MongoDB Primary Use Case

Sushil Dwivedi
Team Lead at RBS Securities
I have done a variety of things with MongoDB that started with the adoption of this solution at one company. I was involved in setting up the cluster and then the monitoring, alerting, and backup process. Once all of the set up was complete, I was involved in writing some of the components that were responsible for fetching data from MongoDB. We are now responsible for running the platform, so whoever wants to run MongoDB comes to us and we explain how we can deploy the cluster for their applications. At this point, we build a cluster in the servers under a UNIX account. The number of nodes in the cluster depends on the requirements of the application side. Some of the use cases we have configured MongoDB for are desk-tooling and a payment card profiling project. We are currently working on a data exchange platform. We also have a couple of use cases in the pipeline for potential MongoDB clients who also need the MongoDB Ops Manager. View full review »

When the company started, MongoDB was our primary database. It offers great flexibility where developers can define any key and assign a value to it. This means that there is very little that one has to plan in terms of designing the schema upfront, so developers enjoy a lot of flexibility. Now that we have more use cases for which NoSQL is not suitable, we are trying to move those workloads out of MongoDB. View full review »

I use it mainly for development. It's a plain document database that maps adjacent data structures. It doesn't cost us that much to integrate. It scales well and it's easy to replicate. It's very easy to set up and it's very easily monitored. View full review »

We use MongoDB in different products. The first is a Business Process Management System (BPMS) that we have developed for ourselves. MongoDB stores all of the data for business flow management. The second product is in the capital market. We have implemented it to use all of the stock-related data. We have also developed an online shipping product, using MongoDB for storing product features. View full review »

Our primary use case of this solution is for schema lists. It's easy to populate the data and to get information for summaries and things like that. The second use case is that there is a mainframe and the upgrades on the mainframe can use your CPU time. As the customer is working on the mixed product, it becomes very costly. Using MongoDB internally allows us to divide as much as we can with it. And there is a service provision that I think is much cheaper than continuing the maintenance of the machine.

We are using this solution for storage and mapping. We have developed an application for mapping. We source the GeoJSON position for approximately eleven million points. Our application is made for desktops, and we started using MongoDB for that application. We have four teams in our laboratory and the other teams are developing their applications to be used with MongoDB. The primary use of MongoDB is for mapping the application. View full review »

We use MongoDB to enable streaming. We have a structured DB where everything is secure. We have everything in folders and structured data. MongoDB is much more better in terms of their response time. View full review »

We use it for big projects. We have multiple DBs on multiple servers, so we have a good performance for it. Sometimes, we are using cloud systems, like Azure, or VMs. We are using MongoDB like a warehouse for data that has no relation nor a need to scale. View full review »
