Introduction

MongoDB being an open-source cross-platform document-oriented database provides high availability, automatic scaling, and high-performance data persistence.

MongoDB is a leading NoSQL database and uses JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) like documents with schemas. This is written in C++ and is used to create and deploy a performance-oriented database.

MongoDB was published under the combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License and is developed by MongoDB Inc.

MongoDB stores data in the form of key-value pairs. This also provides the future of Auto-scaling.

History

When Eliot Horowitz and Dwight Merriman had some scalability issues with the relational databases while developing the web application, they developed the MongoDB. According to Dwight Merriman, the name MongoDB is derived from the word humongous to support processing a large amount of data.

MongoDB was first introduced by the software company 10gen in 2007 as a service product. In 2009, offering commercial support and other services, the company shifted to an open-source development model. In 2013, the company 10gen changed its name to MongoDB Inc.

MongoDB was published under the combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License and is developed by MongoDB Inc.
