MongoDB Valuable Features

Sushil Dwivedi
Team Lead at RBS Securities
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 particular users. This is a highly available architecture. If you are using a three-node cluster and one of these goes down then either of the secondary nodes will become a priority to eliminate downtime from the application's perspective. View full review »

MongoDB is extremely developer-friendly because when you are starting, there is very little time needed upfront in terms of planning. Whenever a developer wants to build a certain feature, they simply define a key and a value and that's it. It is very easy to create an index on a field that you want to have searchable. All of the documents are stored in JSON format, which gives developers a lot of flexibility. View full review »

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 FHIR application on top of, MongoDB offers. Another major selling point was that they're massively scalable. The fact that unlike relational databases, MongoDB allows a lot more scalability and it was more suited for the type of data that we were storing, which was semi-structured healthcare data. It provided very nicely for the standards that we were working - FHIR - which could be interfaced with JSON and Mongo. It had very good JSON capability and storage. Overall, it was a combination of what we were trying to store and the scalability in terms of being able to store a lot of this information over time. View full review »

The feature I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use. Even a non-technical person will be able to understand it. I also find the integration with other tools very easy. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the geometric information done with GeoJSON. We search the points, and we can perform searches for the data using the RPA for MongoDB. We can ask for points in the geometric shapes or points near other points. View full review »

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 single table. View full review »

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