Introduction to MongoDB
MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which provide rich queries and deep functionality).

MongoDB (from "humongous") is a scalable, high-performance, open source, document-oriented 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.
* Auto-Sharding »
Scale horizontally without compromising functionality.
* Querying »
Rich, document-based queries.
* Fast In-Place Updates »
Atomic modifiers for contention-free performance.
* Map/Reduce »
Flexible aggregation and data processing.
* GridFS »
Store files of any size without complicating your stack.
* Commercial Support »
Commercial support, training, and consulting available.
