Let’s take a look at what’s inside.
New Storage Engines for New Use Cases
We’re introducing new storage engines that extend the capabilities of MongoDB, including an in-memory storage engine for the most demanding real-time apps (currently in beta) and an encrypted storage to secure data at rest.
In MongoDB 3.2, you can now get the benefits of a flexible data model without sacrificing governance. With document validation, you can define rules on what's being stored in your database.
MongoDB 3.2 introduces MongoDB Compass, a new tool that allows developers and DBAs to visualize and explore their MongoDB data without having to use the MongoDB query language. It’s a sophisticated and simple to use GUI.
The new BI Connector in 3.2 enables analysts, data scientists, and business users to visualize MongoDB data with industry-standard SQL-based BI platforms such as Tableau, Qlikview, and more.
And so much more
We’re only scratching the surface with the above. MongoDB 3.2 also introduces $lookup to join data across collections, enhancements to Cloud Manager and Ops Manager, partial indexes, and so much more. Learn more in our about MongoDB 3.2 page.
