My post however, aims at highlighting the areas where Mongodb works and how
it performed brilliantly for us. As someone leading the engineering efforts
for a shipping and logistics company I wasn’t too happy initially to see
Mongodb being used as the primary datastore but after 2 years I’m more than
sure that this was definitely the datastore for us. I’ve outlined areas that
confused me when i first encountered them only to learn that they were
actually invaluable features that were available to me.
I fail to understand how someone can defend the bad usage of locks or the now-not-anymore-default fire and forget behavior of a database. Maybe that’s why the original title is “Mongodb — not evil, just misunderstood”.
