When Data Is Worthless - Give MongoDB What Is MongoDB's

Emin Gün Sirer concluding a follow up post to MongoDB fault tolerance is broken by design:

So let us give onto Mongo what is clearly its: it’s mature software with a large install base. If it loses data, it’ll likely do so because of a deliberate design decision, rather than a bug. It’s easy to find Mongo hosting and it’s relatively easy to find people who are experienced with it. So if all your data is really of equal and low value, and you can afford to lose some of it, and your app’s needs are unlikely to grow, then MongoDB can be a fine pick for your application.

Looks like we mostly agree.
