|Triggers||yes in MongoDB Atlas only||yes, before/after data modification events, on replication events, client session events|
|Partitioning methods Methods for storing different data on different nodes||Sharding Partitioned by hashed, ranged, or zoned sharding keys. Live resharding allows users to change their shard keys as an online operation with zero downtime.||Sharding, partitioned with virtual buckets by user defined affinity key. Live resharding for scale up and scale down without maintenance downtime.|
|Replication methods Methods for redundantly storing data on multiple nodes||Multi-Source deployments with MongoDB Atlas Global Clusters|
|Asynchronous replication with multi-master option|
Configurable replication topology (full-mesh, chain, star)
Synchronous quorum replication (with Raft)
|MapReduce Offers an API for user-defined Map/Reduce methods||yes|
|Consistency concepts Methods to ensure consistency in a distributed system||Eventual Consistency can be individually decided for each read operation|
Immediate Consistency default behaviour
|Casual consistency across sharding partitions|
Eventual consistency within replicaset partition when using asyncronous replication
Immediate Consistency within single instance
Sequential consistency including linearizable read within replicaset partition when using Raft
|Foreign keys Referential integrity||no typically not used, however similar functionality with DBRef possible||yes|
|Transaction concepts Support to ensure data integrity after non-atomic manipulations of data||Multi-document ACID Transactions with snapshot isolation||ACID, with serializable isolation and linearizable read (within partition); Configurable MVCC (within partition); No cross-shard distributed transactions|
|Concurrency Support for concurrent manipulation of data||yes||yes, cooperative multitasking|
|Durability Support for making data persistent||yes optional, enabled by default||yes, write ahead logging|
|In-memory capabilities Is there an option to define some or all structures to be held in-memory only.||yes In-memory storage engine introduced with MongoDB version 3.2||yes, full featured in-memory storage engine with persistence|
