What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that we don't need a schema to store the data. The security is very good. Cybersecurity, authentication, authorization, and server certifications are all valuable features. We can define security rules at the database level or the cluster level to grant or deny access to… more»

What needs improvement?

The documentation for MongoDB is not very good and should be improved. Some of the documents are referring to legacy versions. MongoDB 4.2 has been released, but there are training documents and other documentation that still refers to versions 3.6 and 3.4, which is not good. They should definitely… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use a different NoSQL solution prior to MongoDB. We continue to use Microsoft SQL Server for other types of database implementations that require SQL, which I also have expertise in.

What other advice do I have?

MongoDB is a solution that I can recommend because we have realized good benefits from it. We are in the process of setting up the ODS project, which should help the organization from a cost perspective. Then we will be moving the mainframe data to ODS, and we can use the MongoDB API to fetch data… more»

What is most valuable?

One feature that we found most valuable is that it is completely open source - this was majorly important. Because we worked for a nongovernmental organization we had to work with only open source tools. So that was a big selling point for MongoDB. We also needed a document-based DB to build this… more»

What needs improvement?

We were quite happy with the product and the actual use of it. We had no particular problem. In the future, if they could look into supporting FHIR better. FHIR is a healthcare standard. I don't know what that would mean, but, we had to implement a layer on top of it that implements FHIR. But if… more»

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

I would definitely recommend MongoDB. I'm hoping MongoDB will continue to be developed from strength to strength because I think it's an awesome tool. I hope that other products, like DocumentDB, will find a way to work with MongoDB to improve the overall stability of the product. It would be good… more»

What other advice do I have?

MongoDB Atlas was the deployment mechanism we went with and that was hugely helpful for us. MongoDB Atlas is part of the MongoDB suite, I think. It's just a deployment of the Mongo. We also deployed it on Amazon using DocumentDB, but we found that MongoDB Atlas worked better in the end.

What needs improvement?

The solution is known for not requiring people to set a root password when you set it up, so it has leaked data, like a feed, and it's the first thing I need to teach everyone that sets the system up. There was a story out of China where there were 100 known users that were being monitored by the government and there was a MongoDB cluster. They forgot to set a root password so it was publicly… more»

What other advice do I have?

The solution scales very well and is very easy to replicate. If you need something done quickly and you need something that does scale fairly well I would suggest MongoDB. You can always transition away from it later on. It's always a solid first bet if you want a simpler kind of web page or web system. It's a very solid choice if you want to get up and running quickly. It's my go-to for all these… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

My first foray into MongoDB was actually when I started using a Google data store which is very similar. We ran into problems because we didn't have any search or solutions for it. We switched over to MongoDB because that had the basic search engines we needed so we can actually get some basic search going and be able to scale out. We didn't do a technology selection. We just had other… more»

What is most valuable?

MongoDB is very valuable for us due to the large amount of entries that we can install in the database. The solution makes it very easy for us to develop with these databases. It is also easy for development and to list all our entries in a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I like that this solution helps us to manage our allowed time on the release date or entry, but if you have a conventional application where you have to make a lot of queries with the joints, you have to mix the information of several… more»

What needs improvement?

We find it difficult to incorporate MongoDB in some projects. It's also very complicated to join different tables. For example, MongoDB works very well with the note GS Java Script. But when you try to develop in Java, it is not so easy. So… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use MariaDB as the main product of the company, but we find it difficult to fine-tune the database and to increase our services. We also have problems with queries. So we implemented MongoDB with MariaDB because MariaDB doesn't have the… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be not to use MongoDB for complex business applications or difficult queries. There are some integration issues that need to improve, so I will rate this solution an eight out of ten. Still, it is a very good… more»

What is most valuable?

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

What needs improvement?

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. Relations in MongoDB is another issue. Trying to make a relation such as a connection or using the OIE can be very slow. It's not a fault… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

MongoDB is more secure than similar databases. You can pass documents from there. You can add large data in the same record. It works with PostgreSQL and the like, and it is a structural database.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is not to use Relationships in MongoDB. MongoDB is not a relational database, so don't try to use Relationships in MongoDB. I would rate MongoDB as eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

* The document space is the main feature of it. * It has good performance. * The community is great if you have problem.

What needs improvement?

You need integration with other tools to run the query in MongoDB.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I recommend the solution for my current company. They have used MongoDB for two projects now. We chose MongoDB because of its community.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the rate the solution as a seven (out of 10).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When you compare MongoDB to other DBs like the SQLOne, they are all the same system, in terms of performance. I did a benchmark between SQLBase and MongoDB. The performance and some queries in SQLBase are much better.

What is most valuable?

* Its capability to do quick, powerful aggregations has caught my attention. * The search queries are pretty fast and mean time to get response is around 50-100/ms. * The installation is very stable.

How has it helped my organization?

We capture more than 30 million records every week in IoT NS. MongoDB has been serving us well so far. It is easier to maintain the data with its document-based storage.

What needs improvement?

Its indexing capabilities could be further improved. The libraries, e.g., Mongoose could still be improved to handle MongoDB. The improvements could be made to intelligence to detect disk storage and prevent MongoDB from crashing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did compare Cassandra against MongoDB, but we faced a few problems while data was restoring with Cassandra and chose MongoDB to avoid such issues.
