A HEAVY WEIGHT WITH MONGODB
Smile has integrated Magento and MongoDB, a NoSQL database to meet the challenges of storing larger catalogues of data, this scalable solution will bring an unmatched performance.
Through the integration of MongoDB the size and use of your database is significantly reduced. Thus, giving more availability for dealing with other tasks and facilitating maintenance.
Mongogento was designed to operate on heterogeneous catalogues containing millions of products, while reducing the impact of the Magento EAV model .
The use of the NoSQL MongoDB for storing product attributes reduces the load on the MySQL database while retaining the flexibility of the document model.
Magento is a very flexible platform. The beauty of Magento 1 platform is that users can create Magento e-commerce stores with a variety of
functions using built-in extensions. But unfortunately, flexibility doesn’t make Magento 1 platform, the most user-friendly or a high
performing platform. Performance optimization, mobile responsiveness, admin capabilities, these are some common needs of any e-commerce
store which is why to address these issues, the Magento team comes up with the upgraded platform like Magento 2.x.
It is upgradable in decentralised environments via replication and sharding mechanisms. Its particularly successful integration with most
programming languages and its quality documentation have earned MongoDB its great popularity.MongoDB takes advantage of the sharp upturn in
interest for document databases that are better aligned with modern environments that need
to handle extremely heterogeneous data and for which relational DBMSs are not necessarily the most appropriate. It should be noted that
many open source projects tend to integrate MongoDB for use as a storage engine. It is written in C++.
