Currently, NoSQL Database managers are being widely used by developers. Since it has many advantages and their projects are the most open source. And MongoDB is one of the most popular managers. So, this article is about how to install MongoDB in Fedora 34 / 33.

MongoDB allows your teams to easily organize, use and enrich data – in real time, anywhere. MongoDB is a NoSQL and document-oriented database manager. In short, instead of saving the data in the record as the SQL database, it saves them in documents with BSON format which is a binary representation of JSON.

In the world of unrelated SQL database MongoDB is perhaps the most popular, however, it can be used by very different applications that require a semi-structured data collection. On the other hand, its use in transactional systems is not recommended as MongoDB does not support transactions.
