The 10 Coolest Big Data Products Of 2014 (So Far)

MongoDB 2.6

CEO: Max Schireson

MongoDB is one of a number of next-generation "NoSQL" databases challenging the dominance of relational database products from Oracle, Microsoft and others found in most corporate data centers today.

MongoDB, a cross-platform, document-oriented database, is designed to help organizations manage their exploding volumes of unstructured data. MongoDB 2.6, released in April, offers new text search features and tools for running ad-hoc analyses, expanded security functionality, new tools for manipulating large data volumes and summarizing/aggregating data, enhancements to MongoDB Management Services for simplified management, and improved scalability and performance.
