MongoDB NoSQL enterprise class database platform

MongoDB (from "humongous") is a scalable, high-performance, open source NoSQL database. Written in C++, MongoDB features:

Document-oriented storage
JSON-style documents with dynamic schemas offer simplicity and power.

Full Index Support
Index on any attribute, just like you're used to.

Replication & High Availability
Mirror across LANs and WANs for scale and peace of mind.

Scale horizontally without compromising functionality.

Rich, document-based queries.

Fast In-Place Updates
Atomic modifiers for contention-free performance.

Flexible aggregation and data processing.

Store files of any size without complicating your stack.

Commercial Support
Enterprise class support, training, and consulting available.
