Working alongside your team, or as your team, we fill the gaps to not only introduce open-source technologies like MongoDB to your environment, but also to effectively operate and maintain them.
We do more than just operations management. Our cloud and data experts work closely with our MongoDB teams so we can provide management and consulting services for every use case along your application or database lifecycle.
We provide ongoing SLA-based operations and production management for MongoDB databases and applications.
Develop better MongoDB solutions faster by accessing our integrated teams of certified MongoDB, cloud and data experts and technical consultants.
Our certified experts can provide deployment, configuration and management of MongoDB on-premise or on leading cloud platforms.
MongoDB is a general purpose, document-based, distributed data platform built for modern application developers and for the cloud. No data platform is more productive to use.
The MongoDB data platform is built around three core design principles that collectively enable you to build faster, and with higher quality:
The easiest way to learn MongoDB is through our free online training courses for developers and DBAs at MongoDB University. MongoDB University online training courses are developed and taught by MongoDB, Inc. engineers. MongoDB University has had over 1 million registrations from 196 countries: these students have learned how to develop and deploy applications on MongoDB.
MongoDB University free courses cover everything you need to know to become a MongoDB expert. Online training courses are developed specifically to help you build new skills in the areas that matter most to employers. The online training courses are based on real-world applications and taught by our dedicated team of in-house engineers who work on the code every day and have seen use cases across 13,000+ companies.
MongoDB University training courses are self-paced, allowing you to review the videos and course materials at a time that is convenient for you. At the same time, we offer structure to your learning with weekly assignments and deadlines to check in on your progress and a final exam to test your knowledge. Most courses run for three weeks, and each week typically requires just 90 minutes of your time. Find a course that’s right for you. View the course catalog.
Data in MongoDB is stored in BSON documents – JSON-style data structures. Documents contain one or more fields, and each field contains a value of a specific data type, including arrays, binary data and sub-documents. Documents that tend to share a similar structure are organized as collections.
It may be helpful to think of documents as analogous to rows in a relational database, fields as similar to columns, and collections as similar to tables.

You can also interact with MongoDB graphically using MongoDB Compass, the GUI for MongoDB. Through Compass you can explore and manipulate your data, visually create queries and aggregation pipelines from the GUI and then export them as code to your app; examine query execution and performance; view and create indexes; build schema validation rules and views; and more.
Yes. Multi-document ACID transactions have been available since the MongoDB 4.0 release in 2018.
