Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 3 February 2015 at 09:57 AM EST. 5 Comments
MongoDB 3.0 was announced today with an expected GA release in March. MongoDB 3.0 has "massive improvements to performance and scalability, enabled by comprehensive improvements in the storage layer."

MongoDB 3.0 builds in the WiredTiger storage engine that attempts to make use of modern hardware designs and offers various new features, improvements to the original MongoDB storage engine, and there's a new storage engine API available to MongoDB users. MongoDB 3.0 was announced today but the general availability release isn't expected for at least another month. A MongoDB 3.0 release candidate is expected soon for testing.

"MongoDB 3.0 is a landmark release. It brings comprehensive improvements in performance, flexibility, ease of management, and cost to operate. MongoDB has always made it fast and easy to iterate -- from prototype to production to maturity, keeping pace in the most agile environments. Taken as a whole, the changes in 3.0 remove bottlenecks and obviate workarounds, suiting MongoDB to an even wider variety of applications, and providing teams the confidence to run it in more mission critical situations. MongoDB 3.0 is a true contender for the title of 'default database' in any organization.," says the MongoDB 3.0 announcement.
