Pros
I knew nothing about the Nosql, until I started with Mongodb, what I like the most about mongdb is the ease of use and the excellent customer support.
It is much perfect when we are integrating it with JavaScript backend. I recommend using MongoDB for all the web developers as it provides great developer experience.
Speed and scalability are better than other databases like MySQL. It is most suitable for the non-relational database.
Cons
There are no functions available for Transaction. MongoDB's documentation is much confusing to the users.
It took me some time to get used to NoSQL development coming from a SQL background, but this shouldn't mean that the product is bad for others.
One wrong installation click can send you into hours of troubleshooting to discover that you did not install the software as a service (always running in the background).

MongoDB is the NoSQL leader and getting better

Reviewed 5 years ago

The first decision about whether to use MongoDB or not is whether you need a relational or non-relational DB. Once you decide a non-relational is best for you project, then MongoDB is a solid choice. It has the ongoing support of a professional team and is widely used in the market, especially for projects utilizing the MEAN stack. This makes it easier to deploy than other solutions.

Pros

MongoDB is incredibly easy to set up and use. The fact that non-relational DBs are better for more unstructured data, makes it so that you don't necessarily have to know exactly what the end state is going to be before building your schema. Its data throughput is also a key differentiator, so anything with Big Data is going to be a good fit for a non-relational DB and MongoDB, in particular. Finally, the team behind MongoDB is constantly improving the product and releasing updates, and there are several good data viewers in the market, including one from Mongo, for viewing the data and creating queries.

Cons

Creating metrics dashboards can be challenging due to the potential need for JOIN queries in your data. Anything that contains these will be harder to aggregate. Their aggregation framework can be hard to use and limiting for certain requirements.

MongoDB - The Best No-SQL Database!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I used MongoDB in a laboratory environment, adding access levels for users to access the data remotely. I also interacted with the database a lot and it was way easier to create and manage it. Furthermore, I never experienced a server-crash whilst accessing the data, which is fairly common for most other no-sql databases. Even-so, it just proves that it manages the memory well.

Pros

MongoDB has integrations with almost all computer languages used today, with even having an integration with Erlang (a very rarely used language). The drivers are easily available from open source contributors and works amazingly well. For a No-SQL database, it is amazingly well managed and easier to use in almost all other languages.

Cons

Its sort of confusing to manage the access control levels of the users, as it is all stored in json file. If there was a way to sort of make this process graphical or interactive, it would have reduced many access threats in a database.

My Review For MongoDB

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall, this is good for beginners and has a small level of application. Their storing and retrieval formats are JSON; B-JSON is very helpful to understand structure. I recommend this for all beginners because it is easy to understand. Cast is also ok compared to other DBs.

Pros

First, it is a NoSQL database. so it uses a flexible JSON-type model. And it has a large and active community, which is helpful for developers seeking support. And beginners can start with MongoDB.

Cons

This DB does not support uploading documents like the AWS Bucket Concept. It only stores text Text Formats. And it can consume a significant amount of memory, especially when dealing with large datasets.

MongoDB is the goto datatbase for any solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great, greatest

Pros

The ease of use. JSON type document helps me to scale my database model as the application is growing. Along with the powerful query language of MongoDB it's so easy to pull data from the data. MongoDB also gives free 500MB is space without giving any credit card and I found that very awesome!

Cons

I would like to see the compass getting more powerful and having many more features.
