Q: Can you tell us why you chose MongoDB?
A: But briefly, MongoDB is a good fit for a lot of reasons. The schema-less document structure provides a lot of flexibility, while the search capabilities provide a lot more value than you get with key-value stores. At the same time, from an operational perspective, it feels very much like MySQL, so our systems and DBA groups are quite comfortable managing the deployment.
The operational similarity with MySQL is not necessarily a plus though.
