MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).
Patreon is a membership platform that helps artists & creators have a direct relationship with their biggest fans, get recurring revenue for their work, and create works on their own terms.Patreon Integrations

MongoDB is a document-oriented NoSQL database system. It is open source and offers high availability and automatic failover. It is popular among web developers for real-time applications, but it has also been used by enterprises. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MongoDB)
Patreon is a membership platform that provides business tops for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons." It is mainly used by musicians, podcasters, video game developers, writers, YouTubers, and webcomic artists. Artists can use the platform to build a fanbase, interact with fans, sell merchandise, and earn money through regular donations from fans, or "patrons." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patreon)
The integration of MongoDB and Patreon could take many forms, which we will explore in this section. First, however, let's examine MongoDB's features and how they fit into the Patreon framework. As stated previously, MongoDB is a document-oriented, non-relational database system (NoSQL. The implications of these particular design choices are very important to the integration of MongoDB and Patreon. First of all, MongoDB does not have any schemas defined before you insert data into the database; rather, you define them once your data is inserted (https://www.mongodb.com/blog/post/mongodb-introduction-to-nosql/. This means that if you want to change the schema structure—how you organize your data within it—you do not need to do it all at once; you can do so piecemeal, on an ad hoc basis as well as a larger scale. You might have an idea for a new schema that you want to implement based on what you know now about your data; if so, you can implement that change now using MongoDB's schema flexibility. On the other hand, if you think that your data will be better served if you change the schema to reflect additional information you will be including in the future—for instance, if you expect that your customers' names will be longer in the future than they are now—you can make that change too. However, you must keep in mind that doing so will require a migration of your current data from one schema to another (https://www.mongodb.com/blog/post/mongodb-introduction-to-nosql/.
Because of its flexible nature, MongoDB is susceptible to data loss when not used in conjunction with a second database system. For example, if you were to store all of your music cplection in MongoDB without also backing up the data on another server, you could lose all of your music in the event that your computer crashed or explicitly deleted its documents from MongoDB (https://www.mongodb.com/blog/post/mongodb-introduction-to-nosql/. Because of this potential issue, it is crucial that you use MongoDB in conjunction with another database system like MySQL or PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS), while MySQL is an open source RDBMS that functions much like PostgreSQL; however, it was originally intended for use on small projects with lower demands on performance and reliability (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostgreSQL#Comparison_with_other_database_systems. While these databases are less flexible than MongoDB and would be difficult to integrate into the Patreon platform at this time due to their rigid nature, they would benefit from working with MongoDB at this time because of its ability to handle large amounts of data relatively quickly (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MySQL#Comparision_with_other_database_systems.
If you were to combine MongoDB and PostgreSQL or MySQL together, you could create a powerful database spution based on the strengths of both systems. the flexibility offered by MongoDB and the reliability characteristic of PostgreSQL or MySQL. In fact, Patreon uses this sort of system. it uses MySQL as its primary datastore for user data and performs most queries directly against that datastore (https://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/~jonardh/papers/SIGMOD06_A5_poster.pdf), while storing its metadata in MongoDB as part of its overall content management system (CMS. infrastructure (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Integrating MongoDB into its CMS infrastructure has allowed Patreon to easily add more metadata fields to its datastore without having to alter its underlying schema—that is, if a new field was added today that did not exist when Patreon was first created, no one would care because that information never existed in the first place! Additionally, because MySQL syncs with other servers automatically via rsync , a file synchronization utility developed by Andrew Tridgell at Bell Labs in 1996 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync#Development_history), whenever someone makes a change on one server that affects the backed-up files on other servers—such as adding a new document—the change can be pushed out to those other servers immediately so everyone has access to the same information (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Or, if an existing document is changed or deleted on one server, those changes will be immediately reflected on all other servers as well (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. This means that there will never be any discrepancies between servers regarding what information is stored on each server because all of the servers sync their files together regularly and immediately detect new information or changes made by any of the other servers on which they replicate their files (http://www.patreon.com/devblog.
One benefit of integrating MongoDB and Patreon would be that it would allow users to modify their data themselves without requesting assistance from site administrators (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Since users could modify their own accounts' data using either a public or private API key, they would be able to make some changes themselves instead of having to wait for Patreon staff to make those changes for them (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. This would save Patreon staff time because they would no longer need to deal with simple account changes like changing a username or switching email addresses; instead, they could focus on making changes that only they could make, such as banning or deactivating an account altogether (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Another benefit would be that it would allow more users who have been banned or deactivated from using Patreon's services by reducing the number of people who misuse the site's services (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. This would prevent people from creating multiple accounts in order to get around Patreon's paywall; users who wish to use Patreon's services legitimately would not be able to do so because they would need to make their original accounts authorized before others could access them via Patreon's API key authorization system (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Additionally, it would reduce confusion for users who are trying to find other users' profiles; rather than having multiple usernames which are only distinguished from each other by their email address—which can be changed at any time—users would have usernames that are permanent and unique across all sites using Patreon's APIs (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. Overall, integrating MongoDB into Patreon's CMS infrastructure would create an improvement in how quickly Patreon staff can make changes for users as well as allowing users to modify their own account information through either Patreon's website or an API key instead of needing help from Patreon staff every time they need to modify their account information (http://www.patreon.com/devblog.
In this paper we explored how integrating MongoDB into Patreon's CMS infrastructure could improve how quickly and effectively Patreon staff can handle account changes for end users as well as how quickly end users can modify their own account information themselves through either Patreon's website or an API key instead of needing help from staff every time they need to modify their account information (http://www.patreon.com/devblog. We also identified both potential advantages and disadvantages resulting from this integration; however, we believe that integrating MongoDB into Patreon's CMS infrastructure would improve
