MongoDB Installation – How to install MongoDB
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database system and it is free and open source software. Classified as a NoSQL database, MongoDB eschews the traditional table-based relational database structure in favour of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster.
In this lesson, part of the “MongoDB – A Scalable NoSQL DB” course, you will get introduced to MongoDB. We will see an overview of its architecture and then we will install the server in various platforms, including Windows, Linux and MacOs.
