MongoDB is an open source database which has a data model that is centred around documents. Springing up under NoSQL, MongoDB has shunned the more traditional tables and rows that are used in relational DBs. Instead, MongoDB focused on collections and documents. Documents are sets of key-value pairs and are the building blocks of all data housed in MongoDB. Collections are sets of documents and work in the same way as tables in a relational database.
MongoDB is used by businesses that need a flexible model where database schemas can change and adapt, and for businesses that don’t want to use object-relational mapping (ORM) that is used in relational tables.
MongoDB is the ideal database solution if you are expecting a high write load, if you need HA in an unreliable environment, for scaling and if your data is based on location.
