Data is one of the most critical assets of any business, and thus it needs to be stored and accessed quickly and securely. A database is a repository of data to handle a large amount of information by storing, retrieving, and managing data. Nowadays, almost every company in the world is handled through databases. Relational and non-relational databases are the most used type of databases where the former manage data in tables, making them efficient and flexible structures to store and access information. In contrast, the latter does not need any predefined schema and supports various data types and huge amounts of data, making them an excellent candidate for businesses and organizations seeking methods to manage the flood of data. MongoDB is one of the best non-relational databases that is document-based and thus is very flexible in representing complex hierarchical relationships with a single record.
