While some companies eschew developing custom software because they don’t want to maintain it, open source (somewhat) mitigates this by letting a community grow up to extend and maintain a project, thereby amortizing the costs of development for the code originators.
The company’s flagship database product has become the most popular of the new crop of non-relational databases, beating out such competitors as Cassandra, CouchDB, HBase, Redis, and Riak in the latest rankings from DB-Engines.
If Ittycheria can work his magic to get more enterprises to use MongoDB in new applications and gradually encourage them to sign up for paid licenses, he can help the company keep growing beyond other NoSQL database companies, including Basho, Couchbase, and DataStax, as well as early-stage startups like Orchestrate and RethinkDB.
NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, along with CouchDB, Cassandra and others, rose in popularity over the past few years because they hold vast amounts of information that would be prohibitively costly or outright impossible to store in regular SQL databases, even though such data stores can lack the consistency and query specificity that relational databases provide.

Given their Web roots, Cassandra, Couchbase and MongoDB have certainly taken more business away from MySQL than any commercially licensed database, but the recent infusions of capital show that there’s big money riding on broad enterprise adoption of NoSQL.
In particular, advocates of Cassandra would suggest that event streaming is fine if you just want to analyse what’s happening right now but that if you want to understand what’s happening now in the context of what was happening five minutes ago and five minutes before that – in other words, trending – then Cassandra is better option.
