MongoDB Changing Default: Now, Write Errors are Reported

Learn how to move from MongoDB to Couchbase Server for consistent high performance in distributed environments at any scale.

I’m really happy to share that, in a coordinated effort, all official MongoDB drivers are changing their defaults to return a response from writes today.

I think that this is kind of a turning point: MongoDB is finally “newbie safe.” You can just spin up a mongod and it’ll default to journaling being on. Then you write to it from a client and it’ll default to telling you if a write didn’t go through.

There are a lot of awesome “quiet” changes like this going into 2.4. I’m actually pretty excited about all these little improvements: sexy features like aggregation and TTL collections are all well and good, but we’re in the process of making some structural improvements that should pay big dividends in the future. Now, back to coding so you guys might actually get some new $-mods in 2.4 :)
