My company uses Mongo DB for our backend infrastructure – it works like a charm. Mongo DB has become the de facto database of choice for web-based companies and startups.

They have a page listing all of the web companies using their database on production deployments. This, of course, screams business ideas at you – a total of 362 interesting, innovative companies are listed. If you’re an entrepreneur in the digital space, a lot of these companies will fascinate you and perhaps even spark that creative idea for your next startup!

    I think its a stretch to call MongoDB the de facto databse for web based companies and startup. There are tons of web based companies and startups that don’t in fact use MongoDB. There are also many who’ve tried but left MongoDB. While MongoDB has its place, the last thing I would do is call it the de facto of anything at this moment.

    In fact, MySQL and PostgreSQL are still the dominant players even among the upcoming NoSQL solutions.

    Hi John

    Agreed, I think I didn’t elaborate myself enough in the post. I think Mongo is becoming the go-to database for web companies that deal with large volumes of unstructured information (e.g. from web APIs). It provides a very logical fit between JSON returned by web api’s and its internal BSON storage structure, making it very easy to setup, use and scale.
