What is MongoDB?

MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a cross-platform document-oriented database system. Classified as aNoSQL database, MongoDB eschews the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor ofJSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster. Released under a combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License, MongoDB is free and open source software.
