MongoDB is a document database that provides high performance, high availability, and easy scalability. MongoDB is a database from the company of the same name, formerly known as 10gen. It’s a schemaless database, meaning that you aren’t required to define tables or fields up front like you would a traditional RDBMS. Instead of tables,
MongoDB uses the term collections. Like an RDBMS, it offers many options for indexing, such as geospatial, full text, and unique fields within a collection. It also offers a very flexible query model, but without JOIN’s like a RDBMS.
MongoDB has a schemaless data model, allowing for widely flexible through heterogeneous documents. A single collection can store a hundred thousand documents and all of them could have a different structure. Whether this benefits you will be determined by your application’s needs.
- High Performance: Embedding makes reads and writes fast. Indexes can include keys from embedded documents and arrays.
- High Availability: Replicated servers with automatic master failover provide high availability.
- Easy Scalability: Automatic sharding distributes collection data across machines. Eventually-consistent reads can be distributed over replicated servers.
- Indexing: Any field in a MongoDB document can be indexed (indices in MongoDB are conceptually similar to those in RDBMS). Secondary indices are also available.
- Replication: MongoDB supports master-slave replication. A master can perform reads and writes. A slave copies data from the master and can only be used for reads or backup (not writes). The slaves have the ability to select a new master if the current one goes down.
- Load balancing: MongoDB scales horizontally using sharding. The developer chooses a shard key, which determines how the data in a collection will be distributed. The data is split into ranges (based on the shard key) and distributed across multiple shards. (A shard is a master with one or more slaves.) MongoDB can run over multiple servers, balancing the load and/or duplicating data to keep the system up and running in case of hardware failure. Automatic configuration is easy to deploy, and new machines can be added to a running database.
- File storage: MongoDB could be used as a file system, taking advantage of load balancing and data replication features over multiple machines for storing files.
