I’m looking to pick the best db solution for my project and my knowledge of db technologies is limited. I’ve got a dataset in JSON of about 4GB I need to import into a DB for searching. I’m using Node.js/Express for the server and the database is not going to grow so my main concern is the current size of the data as I was reading that MongoDB allows only a limited amount of data?

Sadly, it does. You can read about the limits here.

In short, the database itself has a limit of 32TB. Each document within that dataset (each BSON document), has a limit of 16MB.

Frankly, I don’t see much of a problem…

Thank you for your reply! I must’ve been reading outdated information, I will go ahead with mongogb then.
