At 10-years old, MongoDB remains one of the most popular NoSQL databases. Yet, despite its immense popularity, we find many users new to Compose are unsure how MongoDB works, what sets it apart from other databases, or how to work with its JSON-like data structure. If you're new to MongoDB, this webinar recording is a good first stop for learning more.
In addition to offering an excellent overview of "what is MongoDB?" the video also covers what's included with the Compose cloud hosting platform — high-availability configuration, auto-scaling, storage options including WiredTiger, the Compose web UI, availability zones, and more. If you're considering giving Compose for MongoDB a try, but had some questions about how it all works, this is a good place to start. Enjoy!
