MongoDB is an open source, cross-platform, document-oriented database. Classified as a NoSQL database, MongoDB stores data in JSON collections of individual documents with dynamic schemas instead of the traditional tables and rows relational database structure.

MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
