MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database. Classified as a NoSQL
database, MongoDB eschews the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON
-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster. Released under a combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License, MongoDB is free and open-source software.
