Advantages of MongoDB over RDBMS

  • Schema less MongoDB is a document database in which one collection holds different documents. Number of fields, content and size of the document can differ from one document to another.
  • Structure of a single object is clear.
  • No complex joins.
  • Deep query-ability. MongoDB supports dynamic queries on documents using a document-based query language that’s nearly as powerful as SQL.
  • Tuning.
  • Ease of scale-out − MongoDB is easy to scale.
  • Conversion/mapping of application objects to database objects not needed.
  • Uses internal memory for storing the (windowed) working set, enabling faster access of data.
