"MongoDB as the best database solution"

What do you like best?

MongoDB has been very useful due to its full integration with apps, its scald allows to grow applications faster and even more securely. Their code syntax makes attractive the platform to administrate the data and its complements to be accesible and active full time and gets the minor risks when situations o faults could happen.

What do you dislike?

Documentation may be confusing at some concepts and subjects. Even instructions has to be in other former and larger languages. With the same styling of themes Some features could be missed and not be localized at the user administrative interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best way to get NoSQL service at the cloud. One of best Cloud Performance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well sometimes relational database applications get stuck about their rapid growing, so on those cases, implementations of MongoDB on data migrations use to be a great option. Could be even faster to export data into files that represent Json files and called them into the database instance available at the platform.

"Best cloud hosted no-sql service I've used yet."

What do you like best?

Ease of use, availability zone coverage, billing structure, and Stitch as a backend as a service.

What do you dislike?

I've worked with both the free version and the enterprise ( paid contract ). If you are just starting out it can be very difficult to get a useful response from support; it's often better to go to a forum and try and ask someone with the enterprise package if they have any advice as you most likely won't hear back from support on the free/low tiers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The organization structure representation in the web interface could potentially use a little more clarifying ways to show how users belong/have access on various levels to different clusters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used Atlas for startup and the large enterprise monolith rewrite scenarios. On a new app scale being able to use Stitch as a backend as a service makes rapid and solid development a pretty mind blowing experience. On a Enterprise level when you are dealing with the latest trends like GDPR requirements for encryption ( at rest and in transit ) or simply trying to move old, old, old mongo stores because they are now to large to support on the companies own physical pad anymore Atlas really makes the migration as simple as it can really be. The migration tool that you can use to move data stores is a game changer when also using VPC peering for older infrastructure.

What Database as a Service (DBaaS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Lego for tech innovation"

What do you like best?

Building solutions at the speed of thought. Near-zero learning curve. Removes the need to build time consuming plumbing ie no need to develop backend services (both Authentication and data access/CRUD) allowing me to focus on the core value-add of the app (the front end). Being able to rapidly try out new things (R&D of various side projects or test different approaches for the core project). Their support is outstanding - much better than I expected.

What do you dislike?

Nothing about the product. But it would be great if they could provide a way to be kept up to date with a product roadmap and version releases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid innovation and R&D ( I have been able to rapidly prototype several ideas - a load quicker than I have ever been able to). It means a single individual can progress both R&D or develop a main production app incredibly quickly.

"Wonderful DB for Students"

What do you like best?

I have used MongoDB atlas for my project last year , it is best in all manners specially in geographical representation of data. as a student it is best for academic projects because using MongoDB instead of traditional SQL Database saves lots of time.

What do you dislike?

Most of the features and dependencies are cloud oriented , if there can be option to perform offline structural operations it will be best .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most important thing is using MongoDB Atlas instead of traditional database ,saves lots of time in construction and alteration of DB , so if your company is in research or in Big Data you definitely need to switch to MongoDB

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Actually i used MongoDB Atlas for my college project , i used it for sensors data from my project . benefits i got from Atlas is geographical representation datasets and its manipulation.

"Simple and uncluttered"

What do you like best?

The layout and the no-nonsense approach to showing what's needed. The connection parameters can sometimes bewilder a newbie who's using a database GUI for the first time with the SID, port #, etc. But I really found Atlas pretty much easy to setup - perhaps the well explained user guide that I viewed before might have something to do with it.

Once connected, viewing your datasets might take a bit more time, especially if you are more used to the traditional SQL database structures. Once you get the hang of it, you really don't see the difference any more.

What do you dislike?

The filter text box that appears on the query screen is not pretty intuitive at all. At least that's how I felt during the first days of experimenting with Mongo DB. I pretty much felt better writing queries in the CLI interface rather than trying it out in that text box.

Perhaps the syntax errors could be highlighted or explained more - however, if this means dumbing down the product, I would very much be okay with not having it done in the first place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Drop the idea that your database interface needs to be complex in order for it to be awesome. Sometimes, all you need is a simple one to get your product out to the market faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We currently use another NoSQL database for our current product and we have come across limitations in terms of maintenance and memory resources required to keep running it. Additionally, this database doesn't have a native GUI to interact with and some of our developers have not become fond of it.

When we started experimenting with MongoDB, the availability of GUI that's simple and easy to use has been a huge bonus in increasing the comfort level your experience while attempting to shift products. This has led to more of our non-developers in our team to start trying out Mongo DB - especially the ones who were intrigued on the NoSQL concept.

"Best DB for Huge Data"

What do you like best?

I like the capabilities it provides, Various functions through which we can perform complex tasks witing microseconds.

The analysis and Reporting made really easy by using the large amount of data and process that easily through the MongoDB.

It stores the entire data in JSON like documents which can be changed overtime. It provides the powerful method like indexing and real-time integration so that it can simply access and analyze your data.

features of MongoDB such as JSON or BSON Data Storage,Performance, and Scaling. These features come together to create the most powerful database that can monitor, manage, and process huge volume of data in a rather systematic way.

BI connector that make possible to use with SQL tools

The major and very common problem with a growing web application is scaling. To overcome this, MongoDB has come up with Sharding feature. It is one of the greatest key features of MongoDB.It is a schema-less database (written in C++) because of which is much more flexible than traditional database tables.

can be used as a file system with load balancing and data replication features over multiple machines for storing files.supports multiple storage engines. has a rich Query Language, supporting all the major CRUD operations. The Query Language also provides good Text Search features.

What do you dislike?

It is only for the Non-Relational Data. So Whenever I need to use it where the data is in relational format then i can't use it. But the best part of using MongoDB is that you can play around with huge data sets without any problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If You want to use a database that provides almost every feature that you might need then it is the best database you can consider specially if you have large data sets then it perfectly suits rather than using relational databases

MongoDB is fantastic! i'm doing many tests using machines old to simulate a hardware comodity using raspberry, clouds and virtual machines. in all situations performance was very good. I am teacher and whenever the grid allows I use MongoDB to teach students, and he is unanimity! taste of the possibilities you can install locally, use the MongoDB Atlas or cosmosdb. for developers there are several APIs that enables access to MongoDB. commands are well intuitive, although different language SQL. I am speaker, DBA and architect data and taste consider the MongoDB one of the best bd of today

What do you dislike?

"The best way to host data in the Cloud"

What do you like best?

MongoDB is for me the best solution to store and manage data (Nexus architecture)

MongoDB is a great company that delivers incredible value, in one year we had at least 2 major releases (3.6 and 4.0) which significant improvements

With MongoDB Atlas you don't have to care about the hosting, you have from the start the best Ops tool

Security is great

What do you dislike?

Could be nice to easily move data from a cluster to another

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a free try with the Free tier!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building an Information system, we needed flexible data storage, in the Cloud, with very few investment (time & money) we had a professional system running

"Stabilized product with useful features"

What do you like best?

Stabilized, cloud ready can be access easily. Liked the deployment features. Available tutorial to learn the tool quickly and easily.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike, I like this very much. Missing the instant interpreter Getting difficult to migrate to MongoDB from relational database which can be added more value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Can be consider if anyone wants to work in nosql. With free tutorial, this database is easy to learn and can be consider for long term use. I would recommend this to consider this for nosql project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are planning to use this tool for analyzing data from various geographical locations. Currently doing the feasibility study and discussion is under process.

"My usage of MongoDB Atlas"

What do you like best?

Its ease of use is heaven-sent. Setting up a cluster is very easy, and you can choose between lots of providers, in many regions.

MongoDB Atlas has hooks that can be used to send out alerts to Slack for example, or to be used by your own customized service.

User management is a breeze, as is managing your clusters.

The free tier is a nice thing to have and the documentation is great.

What do you dislike?

The free tier, while nice, is very limited. You can only choose one provider, one type of machine and it covers limited regions. It's more than enough for a sandbox environment, or for a small app, but anything above that should use one of the other tiers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out with the free tier, setup some hooks, do a backup, explore the functionalities. It has a lot to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MongoDB Atlas allows for a fast and slick integration with MongoDB, entrusting the management of your clusters to the people building MongoDB. The service is run by the MongoDB team, so the support is always provided by those making the database, and everything is setup as it should be. There's no headaches. Set it up, run it.

Using MongoDB Atlas allows me to forget about infrastructure management and things like that, and many database-related maintenance tasks (like backup) are either taken care by the platform or are very streamlined and easy to use.

"Excellent hosted MongoDB service"

What do you like best?

I started using Atlas because they had a free plan that fit my needs. I think the features provided by Atlas (replicas, backups) are similar to other hosted offerings. Atlas excels at offering the latest versions of MongoDB.

What do you dislike?

The query builder in their admin UI was not helpful. I struggled to use it at times but it was not worth the effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of their free offering. It is quite easy to spin up an instance and get started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was already sold on NoSQL databases. Atlas made it easy to use a (recent) version of MongoDB.

"Stable, fast and at our company;s present size - free"

What do you like best?

The ability to start small (we are in our startup's very early stages) with a free tier BUT have the ability to scale up later and use different regions

What do you dislike?

I would have loved to have at least one europe region available for the free tier because it would help with GDPR compliance in the early stages (now we have to backpaddle... saying we will be able to offer storage in europe post funding)

Also - Why not offer a visual management tool for free tier too? encourage developers to use all your tools and your service will be more sticky anyway! now we are using robo3t instead (and what's preventing us from switching to mLab?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it!!

"Flexible & Powerful, MongoDB is Web Scale... ;-)"

What do you like best?

Easy to implement, but also full featured and capable of Enterprise scaling and security when going to Production. The platform is constantly improving and adding value and features. The user community is very helpful and willing to lend a hand with new chums. For Minimum Viable Product development, mongoDB is a great way to get a database platform up and running that can grow and scale as your product matures, and there is a large curve under which you can operate on the free community edition before having to license enterprise features. It also is quickly and easily deployable to a localhost setup in multiple instances for testing and development.

What do you dislike?

While there are robust security features available, many of them are only in the paid "Enterprise Advanced" version for on-premise implementation, such as LDAP, Kerberos, AD Integration, etc. Using the MongoDB Atlas DBaaS platform will give you the ability to implement these features on a scalable sizing basis, but you are locked into the cloud at this point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the MongoDB University free courses for Developers and DBAs available on their website. You will learn a great deal about the product and ways to leverage it in your environment, and also prepare for their certification exams.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We love the ability to take disparate formats of incoming data (CSV, XML, JSON, Excel, Tab-Separated, etc.) and drop them into unstructured collections for processing by the application layer without having to massage them into a standard schema for import.

"Looks promising"

What do you like best?

I was looking database with a dynamic structure and MongoDB certainly delivers. The object model used is flexible and adapts well to changing content. Having lived in the relational world it take some getting used to but its very powerful.

The free tier of Atlas is great to explore and prove out ideas. The documentation on learning is also great.

What do you dislike?

The toolset to explore is limited. A built grid control would be useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am building a product that allows user to build their own web pages for storing data. Mongo DB allows for the creation of the collection with minimal overhead. As the users alter the pages MongoDB adapts to the the new fields fantastically.

The biggest benefit I've realized is the speed. It is amazingly fast.

"Easy to use, reliable and highly-maintenable"

What do you like best?

Metrics dashboards are built-in, and support/docs are very well laid out and executed. UI is easy to navigate around with StitchApp available for spinning up quick apps.

What do you dislike?

Command line tools were hard to locate, as they are essential for administrative work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Comparing Atlas to other hosting services, Atlas comes straight from MongoDB, which gives it a superior advantage over others when it comes to support and documentation. I've used other hosting services more, but is convinced that Atlas is the better solution when it comes to implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prototyping for a new idea, MongoDB Atlas make things easier than ever to setup and test the proof of concept. Everything is highly maintainable through Atlas and let us focus on the actual problems that we're trying to solve.

"MongoDB - powerful and reliable"

What do you like best?

I like the easy setup and the awsome performance of the database. You can easily setup a cluster environment in minutes on a development machine. The document-structure and schemaless design makes you think different, but more realistic (you need not hassle around with plenty of tables only to get your simple business model).

The Atlas-Cloud-Service is great for production, where you can easily "outsource" the database-administration... but you keep full control over your database-environment.

What do you dislike?

Not really dislike, but the MongoDB queries needs to get used to;

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and register to the MongoDB-university with free onine courses, which gives you a good starting and introduction to the product and its usage. Further, read the awsome online-documentation, which comprises many tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefit for me as a developer is, that I can concentrate on business feature development and that the database completely fit to Domain driven design. It makes things easy, and that is the main benefit.

MongoDB has a very good performance with basic setup, and it is no problem to handle multi-millions of dicuments. And you have additional features to optimize (replica-sets, sharding and so on), so MongoDB scales very good.

Finally, it fits into plain JavaEE development (you don't need JPA, you can use the plain JavaDriver or Morphia as an object-mapper).

"Evaluation of MongoDB Atlas"

What do you like best?

I really liked the service so far, I am using it for a personal project I intend to use commercially eventually, so I have used Atlas for development purposes only so far but I am quite satisfied and will most likely use it once I get to complete and use my project publicly.

What do you dislike?

None so far. I am still implementing a system on it, I haveven;t had any issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NoSql is not a perfect fit for all systems, so my only recommendation is to evaluate that, if it is MongoDB and Atlas would be what I recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Atlas fits pergfectly for what I need, it plays nicely with RoR and is very convenient to use.

"MongoDB: An easy way to store data"

What do you like best?

Document Model is easy to understand and use. Sharding (horizontal scaling) is also easy to implement and gives a very good way to distribute the big workloads across multiple replication sets, while working seamlessly with them. A new feature added in version 3.4 called Geo-distributed Zones relaxes the load even more. It is easy to implement data replication using replica sets. High stability and good performance. It's also easy to learn and develop for.

MongoDB has also launched an online learning website called MongoDB university which helps you to learn a lot about the capabilities of the DB as a developer and as a DBA for free. This website adds a lot to the value of the product.

It also has a db as a service solution called MongoDB Atlas and a nice UI to manage the DB called MongoDB Compass which makes life easier to see some reports.

What do you dislike?

Almost nothing until now. I just use it occasionally because at work we are using a different database product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scalability and ease of use for developers like me.

"Great DB for non relational pourposes"

What do you like best?

The mongoDB its a extremely eficient database for non relational data. Items like blog, with tags, or even credit cards, with a lot of transactions, is better worked on MongoDB. It evens let you insert various types of data in the same field.

The use of non relational database also allows the better use of data pools, with a better performance and easiest use, so i can use a lot more of IOT devices, using just a litle specs, like "id" and "info", and controlling the data is more aplicable in field, with just a few modifications to change the hardware versions, and even holding the data from legacy IOT devices.

What do you dislike?

Its a little more new than the others, so dosn't have as much resources in the community. Its a little more hard to find answer in Mongo than MSSQL or MySQL. But i know that this comes with the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a more vast community from users

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

sensor data from multiple equipaments, and the mongo let me use a simple data pool to use for data management. Hardware revisions and changes is still a pain in others database, specially in relational databases. In non relational databases, is easy to change my devices, and use the mongoDB with new specs. In deployed ones, i dont need to change the software to use with the upgraded ones. Both models can work toghether, and this is a huge step, and with less worries involved.

"A journey to become a data modeler from a developer"

What do you like best?

The support of document to store data. Which is very similar to OOPs concept of objects data model. The support of replication inbuilt which made it is easier to role-out for production without downtime. Setup is extremely easy. No downtime for switching to newer version. Works with most of the languages for app development. Making an app on MongoDB takes less than few hours to test end-to0end flow. With the support for SSL based communication it is mostly secured from man-in-the-middle attack. The development team in MongoDB is continuously releasing new versions and patches that is a very positive thing. I've used from versions 2.2 to 3.4 it is an amazing journey so far. Administrating became easy with Atlas.

What do you dislike?

JavaScript as a choice for query language. Without support for lot of inbuilt functions. It takes a lot of time to frame complex queries with JavaScript. Even Map-Reduce framework is not fast enough while using for complex queries. Need to introduce fast frameworks for query languages as MongoDB is competing with other relational databases also. Need to introduce more community works to make a vibrant community. As an open source database we need more support from community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Based on your requirement decide. As MongoDB supports huge volume of data, try to maximize your usage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mobile based access of data for an wearable device. From minimum capacity to maximum everything is covered. We read/write data even for secured applications also, like credit card info.
