In this tutorial you will learn about the MongoDB History and its application with practical example.
In 2007, New York based software company 10gen started developing MongoDB. Initially company started it to develop as a PAAS (Platform as a service) product, but the company experienced some scalability issues with the existing relational database systems, so they started to develop a document-oriented database system named as MongoDB. The name of the database was derived from the word “Humongous”.
In February 2009, MongoDB is initially released as an open source project and the company started to offer commercial support services for the same.
In August 2013, the company officially changed its name to MongoDB Inc.
