While the market is crowded with NoSQL database vendors, MongoDB, which develops the open-source NoSQL database of the same name (which comes from "humongous"), is among the few that have risen above the noise.
In February, the company launched MongoDB 3.0 with major enhancements to the database's performance and scalability, thanks to the new WiredTiger storage engine.
Founded in 2007, MongoDB has dual U.S. headquarters in New York and Palo Alto, Calif. In January, the company raised $80 million in Series G funding, bringing its total financing to more than $311 million.
