  3. 3. ● "Next Generation Databases mostly addressing some of the points: being non-relational, distributed, open-source and horizontally scalable." NoSQL Databases
  4. 4. Difficult Simple Learning Curve Relational Databases NoSQL Databases Simple Difficult Horizontal Scalability NoSQL Databases
  5. 5. Low Cost High Relational Databases NoSQL Databases Simple Difficult Administration NoSQL Databases
  6. 6. ● MongoDB is a flexible and a scalable document oriented database that supports most of the useful features relational databases have. MongoDB Database
  7. 7. ● The document concept is more flexible comparing with the row concept we all know from relational databases. ● The document model allows us to represent hierarchical relationships using a single record. {"fitstname":"dave","lastname":"levy","children": { {"firstname":"dan","lastname":"levy"}, {"firstname":"tal","lastname":"levy"}} } Document Oriented
  8. 8. ● The documents are grouped into collections. Each collection is kind of a table. Each and every database includes collections. Each collection include documents. ● The documents each collection holds don't need to follow a specific schema. Document Oriented
  9. 9. ● When the amount of data grows there is a need in scaling up (getting a stronger hardware) our data store or scaling out (partition the data across several computers). ● The MongoDB database allows us to split up the data across multiple servers. MongoDB handles most of this process automatically. Database Scaling
  10. 10. ● Unlike many other databases that use heavy protocols such as HTTP/REST, the MongoDB database uses a binary wire protocol as its primary mode of interaction with the server. ● MongoDB was developed in C++ in order to achieve better performance. ● In order to improve the performance many of the relational databases popular capabilities were taken away. MongoDB Performance
  11. 11. ● MongoDB administration was simplified as much as possible. ● The default configuration fits the common scenario. The learning curve is very simple. ● In most cases the developer can handle the administration tasks on his own. Simple Administration
  12. 12. ● MongoDB is available for the following operating systems: Windows, MacOS, Linux and Solaris. ● Drivers for writing code that interacts with MongoDB are available for nearly every programming language, including Java, PHP, JavaScript and .NET. Platform Independent
  13. 13. ● MongoDB official main website is The website includes detailed documentation for using MongoDB. ● You can find a detailed online free course for learning MongoDB at Learning Resources
