    MongoDB Inc. (formerly 10gen) is an American software company that develops and provides commercial support for the open source database MongoDB, a NoSQL database that stores data in JSON-like documents with flexible schemas.


    MongoDB's office in Palo Alto, California

    The company was first established in 2007 as 10gen. Based in New York City, 10gen was founded by former DoubleClick founder and CTO Dwight Merriman and former DoubleClick CEO and Gilt Groupe founder Kevin P. Ryan with former Doubleclick engineer and ShopWiki founder and CTO Eliot Horowitz and received $81 million in venture capital funding from Flybridge Capital Partners, In-Q-Tel, Intel Capital, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Red Hat, Sequoia Capital, and Union Square Ventures.[2][3][4][5] 10gen originally aimed to build a platform as a service architecture based entirely on open source components; however, the company was unable to find an existing database platform that met their "principles" for a cloud architecture. As a result, the company began to develop a document-oriented database system it called MongoDB. After realizing the potential of the software on its own, 10gen's team decided to scrap its cloud platform and focus on maintaining MongoDB instead.[6] In February 2009, 10gen released MongoDB as an open source project.[7][8] 10gen opened its first west coast office in August 2010,[9] having offices in Palo Alto, Reston, London, Dublin, Barcelona, and Sydney by 2012.[10][11]

    In September 2012, 10gen was named as the top[clarification needed] software company and number 9 overall on The Wall Street Journal's The Next Big Thing 2012.[12]

    In April 2013, 10gen moved into the old New York Times building.[13] Office was located at Prince St. before.[14]

    On August 27, 2013, 10gen announced that it would change its name to MongoDB Inc., associating itself more closely with what ultimately became its flagship products.[8]

    On August 5, 2014, Dev Ittycheria was appointed as President and Chief Executive Officer.[15]

    Products and services


    MongoDB Inc's primary technology product is the open source, NoSQL database MongoDB. MongoDB Inc. employs most of the developers of MongoDB. As of June 2015, the MongoDB database has been downloaded 10 million times.[16]

    MongoDB Enterprise

    In March 2010, MongoDB announced that it would offer commercial support for MongoDB.[17] MongoDB's subscription offering includes access to MongoDB Enterprise, professional support, and commercial licensing. With MongoDB 2.4 release, MongoDB introduced MongoDB Enterprise as part of its subscription offering.[18] MongoDB Enterprise contains monitoring and security features such as kerberos authentication and role-based privileges.

    As of MongoDB 3.2, the MongoDB Enterprise version contains the following features:

    • Encrypted Storage Engine - encrypt your data at rest
    • Advanced Security - secure your data with LDAP and Kerberos authentication, and comprehensive auditing
    • Commercial License - to meet your development and distribution requirements
    • In-memory Storage Engine (in beta) - deliver high throughput and predictable low latency

    Ops Manager

    Ops Manager is an on-premises solution for managing MongoDB:

    • Automation - perform single-click installations, upgrades, and index maintenance, with zero downtime

    Ops Manager is available as part of the MongoDB Enterprise Advanced subscription, which features the most comprehensive support for MongoDB and the best SLA.

    Cloud Manager

    Cloud Manager is a cloud based solution for managing MongoDB. Cloud Manager automates provisioning on AWS, or through an automation agent installed by the user.

    • Monitoring - monitor, visualize, and alert on 100+ performance metrics

    Production Support

    In August 2014, MongoDB announced that it would offer support for the community edition of MongoDB.[19][20]

    MongoDB World

    MongoDB World [21] is an annual developer conference hosted by MongoDB, Inc.

    In September 2012, the company announced a partnership with EdX to offer free MongoDB training online.[22] There were 47,000 enrollments in the first MongoDB online education courses in 2012.[23] As of July 2016, 400,000 students have taken classes with MongoDB University.[24]

    In addition to online education, MongoDB University offers public training classes as well as on-site training.[25]

    CIA backing concern

    MongoDB Inc., then known as 10gen, has received funding from the U.S. Government through the CIA-sponsored venture capital arm In-Q-Tel. This has been a source of concern in India.[26]
