The Document Model

As A Programmer, You Think In Objects. Now Your Database Does Too.

MongoDB is a document database, which means it stores data in JSON-like documents. We believe this is the most natural way to think about data, and is much more expressive and powerful than the traditional row/column model.

Rich JSON Documents

  • The most natural and productive way to work with data.
  • Supports arrays and nested objects as values.
  • Allows for flexible and dynamic schemas.

Powerful Query Language

  • Rich and expressive query language that allows you to filter and sort by any field, no matter how nested it may be within a document.
  • Support for aggregations and other modern use-cases such as geo-based search, graph search, and text search.
  • Queries are themselves JSON, and thus easily composable. No more concatenating strings to dynamically generate SQL queries.

All The Power Of A Relational Database, And More...

  • Distributed multi-document ACID transactions with snapshot isolation.
  • Support for joins in queries.
  • Two types of relationships instead of one: reference and embedded.

A Rich Platform

More Than Just A Database

MongoDB is a true data platform with a comprehensive suite of tools to make working with data remarkably easy for everyone, from developers to analysts to data scientists.


  • The fastest way to create visualizations of MongoDB data.
  • Built for the document model.
  • Visualize live data from any of your MongoDB instances. Available on MongoDB Atlas.

BI Connector

  • Allow any BI tool that can speak the MySQL protocol to work with your MongoDB data.
  • Leverage the BI tools your organization already uses.
  • Perform federated analytics, combining data from MongoDB and other databases.


  • Search, visualize and work with your data through an intuitive GUI.
  • Manipulate your data with a powerful visual editing tool.
  • Understand performance issues with visual explain plans and manage your indices.


MongoDB was founded in 2007 by Dwight Merriman, Eliot Horowitz and Kevin Ryan – the team behind DoubleClick.
