MongoDB

October 8, 2010 Leave a comment

I have been using MongoDB for a new project which is coming out soon. So far I am impressed with it. The development focus really shits towards user requirements rather than endlessly playing with SQL, prepared statements, ORM and on and on.

The one problem I have noticed is not really a problem with Mongo but is rather because it is still new to the industry. The hosting providers have not adopted it yet. So if you want to use Mongo and want to host it on and don’t want to host it yourself then the cheap hosting plans won’t work.

This is because the php driver mongo.so needs to be deployed and enabled in php.ini. Hosting providers don’t give you that ability in their base plans which cost $5/month. It’s not an issue if you get dedicated hosting or rent a virtual machine.
