For years, we are using MySQL, an open-sourced relational database for web based application, specially with PHP. The community edition of the database is free and various tools are available to monitor and manage the database. Somehow, MySQL is not scalable and a lots of issues are faced when comes to the performance. To overcome this issue, NoSQL database trend appeared in order to break the relational data model and some awesome benchmark towards performance. Still, there are opinions to choose between a relational database and a NoSQL database. MongoDB is one of the NoSQL databases.
Here is a nice video that I found in the web towards a debate between MySQL and MongoDB and thought to share it you. Hope you will find some interesting information out of this.
