NoSQL Document Database comparison
MongoDB
Best usedIf you need dynamic queries. If you prefer to define indexes, not map/reduce functions. If you need good performance on a big DB. If you wanted CouchDB, but your data changes too much, filling up disks.
Usage exampleFor all things that you would do with MySQL or PostgreSQL, but having predefined columns really holds you back.
Known Shortcomings
Main focusRetains some friendly properties of SQL. (Query, index)
