MongoDB Valuable Features

Martin Doskocil - PeerSpot reviewer
Enterprise Architect at Moneta Money Bank as

We are actually taking MongoDB as serious database tech. It has visible benefits, actually, in terms of price of ownership if you compare it to, for example, Oracle. When we have some processes which really don't need Oracle, we use MongoDB as the first option to see if it wouldn't be cheaper to leverage.

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.

I like that MongoDB has a free version. You can also buy the enterprise edition, which is cheaper than Oracle.

I like the schemaless architecture that it follows. I also like the sharding that it provides.

One of the first things I noticed when I had my first experience with MongoDB was how easy it was to use. I was expecting more difficulties or at least some challenges, but it was very, very easy to use. It's great technology, performs well, and is very convenient.

MongoDB is the best choice for us when we want to store NoSQL-type data.

The clustering is very good. It allows us to have high availability.

The performance is good.

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.

In our case, it is most important to have redundancy. It supports a replica set and it allows us to use mutual TLS for authentications with the certificates.

The documentation is useful.

Software Developer at Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba

MongoDB is very stable, and, by that I mean, amazingly stable. Using javascript was the key to have a wide range of functionalities based on its syntax and grammar. The aggregation framework is really good, allowing a developer to build very complex queries. The fact a developer builds some functions and can run through the whole cluster, actually and efficiently using all the resources available, is a great advantage. It's given the developers a very robust path to building whatever procedures they need. MongoDB is very, very stable.

MongoDB is relatively fast compared to relational databases. The files are stored in XML format, which is a stable format. 

MongoDB is also great for managing logs.

Databases provide the data and any software can access those databases as per the access protocol — the database itself provides the data.

You can have the same database in multiple geographic locations. You can update it from different locations and the other locations also get updated. In that way, it is a good product. Very good.

It is convenient to use because we can do manipulations with the JSON data that we get. There are also a lot of joins and associations with MongoDB, which makes it easy to use for us.

There is also a lot of transaction-related support from MongoDB.

I think that MongoDB isn't too structured, and that's good for our technical team because they are able to search through the database better than if they are using SQL Server.
