MongoDB – GridFS Using Mongoose On Node.js

MongoDB and Node.js are often used together because of their shared use of JavaScript and its object notation (JSON & BSON). MongoDB is a type of NoSQL database will stores its data in documents. MongoDB stores data as BSON with a limitation of document size 16 MB, Where BSON is a binary serialization format used to store documents and make remote procedure calls in MongoDB. GridFS is MongoDB’s solution for storing and retrieving files that exceed the BSON-document size limit of 16 MB. Instead of storing a file in a single document, GridFS divides the file into parts, or chunks, and stores each chunk as a separate document.
