Issues with uploading non structured data


This chapter shows how to insert movie data in a atlas sandbox cluster. But, from what I understand Mongo DB holds edge over RDBMS because Mongo DB can store non structured data.
Can someone please help in identifying which data in movies.js file is non structured?
Can’t this movie data be stored in RDBMS tools like Oracle, SQL Server etc?

ALso, I understand that images, GIF, video files can be stored in MongoDB. However this chapter does not cover that? Which MongoDB course can help me in learning on how to upload images and videos on Mongo DB?


I am not very well versed with RDBMS so I cannot 100% answer your first question; however when I searched for more info I found this site which suggested to my that the plot field may fall under the category of unstructured data, as it is text.

For storing large files see the docs

GridFS is a specification for storing and retrieving files that exceed the BSON-document size limit of 16 MB.
