    Product(s): MongoDB

    Quick and easy to get a project started and evolve schema

    Overall Comment

    Nice DB to work with as a developer. Evolving and getting more mature Latest versions are starting to fill in some of the missing gaps

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    MongoDB is quick to prototype with and get solutions up and running quickly but it can be hard to maintain in a production environment.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Easy to get started with. Easy to iterate and evolve your schema. Can run on many platforms and can be used with any programming language. Natural fit when working with JSON/Javascript. Can scale with sharding

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Requires a change in the way that you think about and implement solutions compared to a traditional RDBMS Limited support for transactions and joins Hard to maintain and support

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Provide a better JSON-based query language

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Would still choose MongoDB for many types of projects

    Product(s): MongoDB

    Makes it easy to create and adapt database structure at any step in development process

    Overall Comment

    MongoDB is a well documented, full featured no sql database. Under the correct use it is extremely performant. Each new release continues to add large features. With that said it is not cheap and steadily followed an increasing price trend. Upgrades have generally been seamless however with the latest 3.2->3.4 we are forced to jump driver major versions which would require an almost full data access rewrite. (C# driver)

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Shop around, at least a few other nosql database providers now exist and should be considered. Definetly not saying avoid mongo as we've found it to be an exceptional tool. But it is pricey and should be considered.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    It is super easy to stand up and develop with and is very performant.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Pricing structure is steap and offers no discounts for multipler server instances.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    As a large organization we have many db server instances, we do not get any sort of bulk discount.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    At this point in time, a few other database providers have come out with nosql databases, we would take the time to access those to be aware of what is out there.

    Product(s): MongoDB

    MongoDB is great with C# MVC. Creating new applications is easy with MongoDB.

    Overall Comment

    Migrating our products using the upgrade strategy provided by MongoDB was simple and successful in our situation. We were able to incrementally move between revisions with no problems. The database is fast and performant with little bottlenecks and sql wait times. The vendor has helped in the past with recommendations for server environment settings, and even come on-site for assistance with troubleshooting.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Decide whether you want or need a NoSQL DB (and it fits) for your applications before assuming that MongoDB will be better than a traditional relational db.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Ease to create new collections, or tables, modify data, and structure of the database. It makes creating new software/product/sites a breeze over the traditional db.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Separate teams using the same server into their own instances. This was something that prevented upgrades as all teams needed to upgrade/implement changes (and not all teams had the capacity to do so). Also, installing in unix instead of windows would have saved some headaches in the initial implementation as it has clear advantages/support over the other.
