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 available and that kinda happens over and over again so people need to at least supply some basic securities. Training would be very good, at least to get some basic production level set up. People need to figure it out because just setting one up is easy, but then you need to get a replica going and that's hard and then getting performers ready and that's even tougher and somewhere along the way people tend to forget about security. Every month some major company forgets to set the password. 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. View full review »

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 the integration is not very simple. My colleagues, however, reported that it's easy to manage the database. I also know that it is very easy to make an application in Java scripts. View full review »

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, though, because it's not a positional database, so it isn't supposed to use it for relation.

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. View full review »
