MongoDB is a document database system written in C++ once described as "CouchDB without the crazy". Its web site defines MongoDB as a scalable, high-performance, open source, schema-free, document-oriented database with the following primary features:

  • Document-oriented storage (the simplicity and power of JSON-like data schemas)
  • Dynamic queries
  • Full index support, extending to inner-objects and embedded arrays
  • Query profiling
  • Fast, in-place updates
  • Efficient storage of binary data large objects (e.g. photos and videos)
  • Replication and failover support
  • Auto-sharding for cloud-level scalability
  • MapReduce for complex aggregation
  • Commercial Support, Training, and Consulting

Programmatic access is available in a number of languages such as C, C++, C#, Erlang, Java, Python, Ruby, and more. MongoDB uses an AGPL/Apache license model, but it is friendlier to applications that want to use it.
