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.

It's easy to add and remove things in MongoDB. You can alter the tables. MongoDB is faster at reading, slower at writings.

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.

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.
