MongoDB – Document-Oriented Database

MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a scalable, high-performance, open source, dynamic-schema, document-oriented database.

Combining the best features of JSON databases, key-value stores, and RDBMSes.

Written in C++, MongoDB features:

  1. Document-oriented storage (the power and flexibility of JSON-like data schemas)
  2. Dynamic queries
  3. Full index support, including secondary indexes, inner-objects, embedded arrays, geospatial
  4. Query profiling
  5. Fast, in-place updates
  6. Efficient storage of binary data large objects (e.g. photos and videos)
  7. Replication and fail-over support
  8. Auto-sharding for cloud-level scalability
  9. MapReduce for complex aggregation
  10. Commercial Support, Training, and Consulting

MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems. Many companies are using MongoDB in production today.
