MongoDB is a system designed for storing Big Data. In short, MongoDB can be described as a document-oriented database system with scalability and flexibility according to user needs and defined by its indexes. The prominent features of the system include the ability to handle large quantities of data (hence the name "humongous").
In other words, the system stores data in large quantities and allows easy searching through index definition, data mapping, and a user-friendly and learnable system. Additionally, MongoDB is an open-source system, meaning it's free and open to a wide audience of users. Developers appreciate it mainly for its flexible schema.
The MongoDB course will provide you with practical knowledge and tools for using the system. Throughout the course, you will learn how to install MongoDB, understand its concepts, environment, JSON, index creation, and more.
Data in MongoDB is stored in a series of BSON files on disk, usually with a size of 2GB.
In the MongoDB course, we will compare it to another system that serves a similar purpose, MySQL (a separate MySQL course is available).
