TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library



NoSQL database

MongoDB (from "humongous") is a scalable, high-performance document-oriented NoSQL database system. Instead of storing data in tables as is done in a "classical" relational database, MongoDB stores structured data as JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, making integration with certain types of applications easier and faster.

Stable version: 14.0 (changelog)
