History of MongoDB
The initial development of MongoDB began in 2007 when the company was building a platform as a service similar to window azure.
"Window azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure, created by Microsoft, to build, deploy and manage applications and service through a global network."
MongoDB was developed by a NewYork based organization named 10gen which is now known as MongoDB Inc. It was initially developed as a PAAS (Platform As A Service). Later in 2009, it is introduced in the market as an open source database server that was maintained and supported by MongoDB Inc.
The first ready production of MongoDB has been considered from version 1.4 which was released in March 2010.
MongoDB2.4.9 was the latest and stable version which was released on January 10, 2014.
