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»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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?

* 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.
