Transactions are coming…

MongoDB 4.0 will add support for multi-document transactions, making it the only database to combine the speed, flexibility, and power of the document model with ACID guarantees. Through snapshot isolation, transactions will provide a globally consistent view of data, and enforce all-or-nothing execution to maintain data integrity. MongoDB 4.0 will ship in Summer 2018.1

with client.start_session() as s:
        collection.insert_one(doc1, session=s)
        collection.insert_one(doc2, session=s)
    except Exception:

So what does MongoDB 4.0 provide to make it the best way for you to work with your data?

  • Open source
  • Flexible, rich data modeling with schema validation
  • Fully expressive joins, faceted search, graphs queries, powerful aggregations
  • Native horizontal scale-out with sophisticated data routing controls
  • Multi-node durability with tunable semantics
  • Analytics and BI-ready
  • Encryption everywhere and enterprise-grade security integration
  • Mature management tools for ops automation, wherever your infrastructure is
  • Database as a service in every major public cloud
  • And... multi-document ACID transactions

ACID transactions are a key capability for business critical transactional systems, specifically around commerce processing. No other database has both the power of NoSQL and cross collection ACID transaction support. This combination will make it easy for developers to write mission critical applications leveraging the power of MongoDB
