Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"MongoDB is scalable and stable. The initial setup is very easy, and deployment and maintenance can be done by one person.""The clustering is very good. It allows us to have high availability.""like its performance and the stability. It's very stable and, performance-wise, it's really great.""The solution's most important aspect is its seamless database.""One of the most valuable features of MongoDB is it is Its open source.""The solution is user-friendly with a good object retrieval feature.""It stores historical data with ease. For example, if you are a healthcare member, then you will have multiple records of visits to the doctors. To store such data in Oracle Database, you have to create many records. You might also have duplication problems because your records are going in again and again, because of which the data warehouse and the maintenance cost will be huge. MongoDB is comparatively lightweight. It is a JSON extract. Once you define a schema and extract it, you can push all the relationships in any way you want. It is easier to define and get different types of transactions into MongoDB. It is also easier to set it up as compared to other solutions. MongoDB is a NoSQL database, which means it is a document DB in which you can store documents that you created in BSON. It is pretty fast in response. It is faster than relational databases because it does not define any primary keys, secondary keys, tertiary keys, and all those kinds of things.""It is easy to use."

More MongoDB Pros →

"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."

More SingleStore Pros →

"It would be much more useful if I have an admin user and a password.""A normal Oracle or database tester will take some time to gear up to MongoDB because the way of writing queries is different in MongoDB. There should be some kind of midway where a person who is coming from an Oracle background can write a query and get a response by using something like a select * statement or other such things. There should be some way for MongoDB to interpret these commands rather than making a person learn MongoDB commands and writing them. I struggled while writing these MongoDB commands. I had not seen such queries before. It was pretty difficult to get them. This is one of the areas where it would help from the improvement standpoint.""The performance can be improved.""MongoDB can improve large-size video or media frame operations. There are a lot of customers who want to upload media frames and video games but there is some difficulty. In MongoDB, we are looking out for solutions that are for large-size media files that can be saved and navigated efficiently.""We'd like information about client onboarding experience and success stories. It would help to have something to show to internal stakeholders.""The performance could be faster.""The solution should have better integration.""Our program developer finds it to be a little unstable, development-wise."

"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We use the open-source version, which is available to use free of charge."
  • "I don't know, but I have heard from people who procure it that it is much cheaper than Oracle."
  • "MongoDB is not expensive."
  • "At the moment, all customers are using the community version."
  • "If you want support with the solution you will need to purchase a license and not use the open-source version. The license is a little expensive."
  • "It's a community edition, so we do not pay anything."
  • "Our customers pay for yearly licenses for MongoDB."
  • "It's open-source."

    SQreamDB is a GPU DB. It is not suitable for real-time oltp of course.

    Cassandra is best suited for OLTP database use cases, when you need a scalable database (instead of SQL server, Postgres)
    SQream is a GPU database suited for OLAP purposes. It's the best suite for a very large data warehouse, very large queries needed mass parallel activity since GPU is great in massive parallel workload.

    Also, SQream is quite cheap since we need only one server with a GPU card, the best GPU card the better since we will have more CPU activity. It's only for a very big data warehouse, not for small ones.

    Your best DB for 40+ TB is Apache Spark, Drill and the Hadoop stack, in the cloud.

    Use the public cloud provider's elastic store (S3, Azure BLOB, google drive) and then stand up Apache Spark on a cluster sized to run your queries within 20 minutes. Based on my experience (Azure BLOB store, Databricks, PySpark) you may need around 500 32GB nodes for reading 40 TB of data.

    Costs can be contained by running your own clusters but Databricks manage clusters for you.

    I would recommend optimizing your 40TB data store into the Databricks delta format after an initial parse.

    MongoDB is a popular data management solution with a NoSQL database that enables you to store and process structured and semi-structured data with ease. The solution is scalable and flexible, and is designed to overcome the relational databases approach and the limitations of other NoSQL solutions. In addition, MongoDB stands apart as the cloud database platform of choice for enterprise applications that require real-time analytics.

    MongoDB Features

    MongoDB has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Load balancing: MongoDB supports large-scale load balancing via horizontal scaling features like replication and sharding.
    • Ad-hoc queries: With this feature, developers are able to update ad-hoc queries in real time.
    • Sharding: With MongoDB, sharding allows for much greater horizontal scalability, with queries that are directed to the correct shard based on specific shard keys.
    • Indexing: MongoDB allows indexing to be created on demand, accommodating real-time, ever-changing query patterns and application requirements. They can also be declared on any field within any document, including those nested within arrays.
    • Replication: MongoDB’s replication feature enables you to deploy multiple servers for disaster recovery and backup, which helps increase data availability and stability.

    MongoDB Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing MongoDB. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Horizontal architecture: Because MongoDB is designed with horizontal architecture, it is easy to scale.
    • Developer-friendly: Being that MongoDB is a document data model with NoSQL, developers are able to work faster. In addition, MongoDB gives developers a number of useful out-of-the-box capabilities, whether you need to run privately on site or in the public cloud.
    • Cloud-based: Because MongoDB is a full cloud-based application data platform, you gain access to a collection of services that can integrate nicely with your database.
    • Powerful analytics: MongoDB is designed to make data easy to access, and also allows you to perform complex analytics and querying.
    • High performance: With MongoDB, information can be embedded inside a single document rather than relying on expensive join operations from traditional relational databases.
    • Easy to install: MongoDB has an intuitive UI, making it easy to install. You can install the community or enterprise version directly on a server, create your own container, or use a pre-built community one.
    • Cost-effective: MongoDB gives you the option to choose an instance size that fits your current needs to help you keep your costs at a minimum.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the MongoDB solution.

    PeerSpot user Deepak K., Managing Director at SimSol Technologies And Services Pvt Ltd., says, “The solution is a very dynamic product. It becomes extremely easy for us to support user requirements and we also make use of the simplicity of a cloud redeployment.” He goes on to add, “The solution is easy to deploy, and the product can scale quite well. The solution's most important aspect is its seamless database. The solution offers excellent documentation.”

    A Senior Associate at a financial services firm mentions, “The most valuable feature of the solution is the ability to easily store documentation regarding structures. We can easily connect to MongoDB and search without transformation, without joining. If we want to use a simple search it's really fast. The initial setup isn't really that complex. The solution is pretty stable overall.”

    Lenses is a simple and secure self service DataOps platform, to operate with confidence on Apache Kafka & Kubernetes.
