How Remote DBA Experts use MongoDB

MongoDB it’s a document oriented database software. It can be used across many different platforms comfortably. The outstanding characteristic of MongoDB is that it does not use relational database technology. It makes use of documents whose schemas are dynamic. In MongoDB, this format of documents is known as BSON.

What do DBA Experts use MongoDB for?

This database software can be used for modeling the entities that are in the back-end of web applications. Remote DBA experts use the software for modeling the back-end architectures of both enterprise and consumer web applications. In this capacity, MongoDB is capable of:

  1. Managing user profiles as well as accounts
  2. Creating Content Management Systems
  3. Collecting and storing form data
  4. Creating cohesive blog and user generated content
  5. Handling messaging within the web application
  6. Allowing configuration of the system
  7. Collecting logs of any sort of data
  8. Creating graphs
  9. Managing and storing data that is based on location

Dealing with the data associated with user profiles and accounts         

MongoDB is capable of storing user data that is entered into a web application. It stores this information in arrays. Each one of these arrays has a unique address for easy data posting and retrieval.

Creating Content Management Systems

MongoDB is designed such that it has a very flexible schema. As a result, you can create collections of content that are quite heterogeneous in nature. By using this database software, you can create and store data of various types and forms and present it in your web application by using your own Content Management System.

Managing form data

Form data is often user generated. By using this database software, you can easily manage it by storing, copying, backing up as well as sending it anywhere you want. In addition to management, MongoDB allows you to determine the evolution of your form data over time.

Managing blog and user generated content

You can use MongoDB to manage your blog site. This type of website often receives posts in form of text and pictures. By using this database software, you can easily store this information in one object and create relationships between the posts for cohesiveness.

Managing the sending and receipt of messages in the web application

Thanks to modern trends, almost every web application has a facility that enables messaging. This is because visitors to the site want to communicate with the webmaster or an assistant. This is commonly found in corporate websites. MongoDB will collect meta data from these messages, organize it and store it such that it will be valuable information to the organization.

Organizing data based on location

A very modern feature, MongoDB is capable of comprehending geo-spatial coordinates. As such, the software is able to tell the location where some information was posted from. By doing this, it is able to perform geo-spatial indexing of information. This can be very valuable data to an organization that wants to know the location of its visitors.


In MongoDB, it is quite easy to integrate data in specific applications. To make it even easier to use, MongoDB is freely available and it is open-source database software. Many popular websites such as eBay, Foursquare and Craigslist make use of MongoDB as their back-end database software.
