Deprecation of 32-bit Versions

Changed in version 3.2: Starting in MongoDB 3.2, 32-bit binaries are deprecated and will be unavailable in future releases.

Changed in version 3.0: Commercial support is no longer provided for MongoDB on 32-bit platforms (Linux and Windows). See Platform Support.

In addition, the 32-bit versions of MongoDB have the following limitations:

  • 32-bit versions of MongoDB do not support the WiredTiger storage engine.
  • 32-bit builds disable journaling by default because journaling further limits the maximum amount of data that the database can store.
  • When running a 32-bit build of MongoDB, the total storage size for the server, including data and indexes, is 2 gigabytes. For this reason, do not deploy MongoDB to production on 32-bit machines.

If you’re running a 64-bit build of MongoDB, there’s virtually no limit to storage size. For production deployments, 64-bit builds and operating systems are strongly recommended.
