Exploring the Software
Let’s find out about MongoDB and its philosophies.
MongoDB Inc, which began as 10gen, develops and delivers commercial support for MongoDB, an open-source NoSQL database that stores data in JSON-like documents that have flexible schemas. It started developing MongoDB around 2007 as part of a planned Platform-as-a-Service product. Then in 2009, it shifted to an open-source development model. MongoDB ships in two editions: the MongoDB Community Server and the MongoDB Enterprise Server.
MongoDB is free and cross-platform. Some features that MongoDB supports are:
- Ad hoc queries
- Load balancing
- File storage
- Capped collections
