MongoDB is increasingly becoming the third enterprise standard for databases. Why? It shines because of its ease of use, whether a developer is using it in a large-scale application that spans hundreds or thousands of nodes, or in a single-server application that has no need for scale. MongoDB is built for scalability, performance and high availability, scaling from single server deployments to large, complex multi-site architectures. By leveraging in-memory computing, MongoDB provides high performance for both reads and writes. MongoDB’s native replication and automated failover enable enterprise-grade reliability and operational flexibility.
Use cases: what can MongoDB do for you?
- Content Management and Delivery: applications that store and serve content, as well as the associated metadata. These apps include e-commerce websites, online publications, web content management systems (CMS), document management, archives and others.
- Customer Data Management like subscriber data management, customer relationship management (CRM), gaming user profiles, biometrics, identity and access management (IAM), and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
- Mobile apps: applications deployed on smartphones and tablets. MongoDB powers the backend of these systems.
- Product and Asset Catalogs: lists of products, property, equipment, inventory and other assets, as well as the associated metadata. Examples include apps for eCommerce, retail inventory management and commercial fleet management.
- Dramatically lower licensing costs compared to similar database solutions like Oracle
- Dynamic schemas in MongoDB provide a simple way to evolve the database with your application. Stay agile and incorporate new device and data types as the market evolves.
- Documents in MongoDB lend themselves to combining structured and unstructured data in a single data store.
- Native analytics make it easy to deliver actionable insights in real-time.
- Rich query language, indexing and search enable CMS to serve the right content to the right user at the right time.
- Horizontal Scaling allows organizations to support massive data volumes and high ingestion rates. It also makes it cost-effective to aggregate and even add to as many data sources as required. MongoDB supports a user base of any scale.
