MongoDB

The industry standard no-SQL solution

Providing high concurrency with flexible schemas. Learn all about working with MongoDB

MongoDB Benefits

MongoDB is a NoSQL database solution. Below are some key benefits of the platform.

Schemaless

Schema is defined in the documents & contraints are not enforced during ingestion making ETL to a data lake simpler.

Development

Adding a field to a schema in an RDBMS is painful. In Mongo, just start writing the data, no need to spend hours tweaking schemas.

Scalable

MongoDB is massively horizontally scalable, unlike traditional RDBMS. This means you can utilise commodity hardware & scale out.

Concurrency

As Mongo does not have particularly complex queries (e.g. no joins), it consumes less CPU & achieves higher queries per second.
