A New World

MongoDB was designed for how we build and run applications today.

New Apps

New Apps
The applications serving, generating and interfacing with data have changed. Big Data, SaaS, social and mobile apps are the new norm.

New Data Types

New Data Types
New applications, users and inputs demand new types of data, like unstructured, semi-structured and polymorphic data.

New Data Volumes

New Data Volumes
Data volumes were once smaller, constrained and predictable. Today organizations must be prepared to support millions of users, thousands of queries per second and hundreds of terabytes of data.

New Development Methods

New Development Methods
The methods we use to build applications have changed. With increasingly competitive markets and the need to adapt constantly, iterative development has become the standard.

New Architectures

New Architectures
The infrastructure on which we store data has changed. Companies are leveraging cloud computing, commodity hardware and virtualization.

What is MongoDB?

Enterprise IT Stack

MongoDB is an open-source database used by companies of all sizes, across all industries and for a wide variety of applications. It is an agile database that allows schemas to change quickly as applications evolve, while still providing the functionality developers expect from traditional databases, such as secondary indexes, a full query language and strict consistency.

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.

MongoDB Features

  • JSON Data Model with Dynamic Schemas
  • Auto-Sharding for Horizontal Scalability
  • Built-In Replication for High Availability
  • Rich Secondary Indexes, including geospatial and TTL indexes
  • Text Search
  • Aggregation Framework & Native MapReduce
  • Hadoop Integration
  • Drivers: 10 MongoDB-Supported Drivers; 40 Community-Supported Drivers
