MongoDB is a popular open-source NoSQL database that stores data in a flexible, document-based format. It is designed to handle large volumes of unstructured data and is highly scalable, making it a popular choice for modern web applications. MongoDB uses a JSON-like format to store data, which allows for easy integration with web applications and APIs. It also supports dynamic queries, indexing, and aggregation, making it a powerful tool for data analysis. MongoDB is widely used in industries such as finance, healthcare, and e-commerce, and is known for its ease of use and flexibility.
Typesense is an open-source, typo-tolerant search engine optimized for an instant (typically sub-50ms) search-like-up-type experience and developer productivity. If you've heard of Elasticsearch or Algolia, a good way to think about Typesense is that it's an open source alternative to Algolia, with some key issues fixed and an easy-to-use battery-powered alternative to Elasticsearch.It works like a CDN, but for Search. Deploy nodes around the world, closest to your users, to provide them an ultra-fast search experience.

12. Once you have completed all of the necessary steps, click "Start Sync" to begin syncing your data between your source and Typesense destination connectors.
With Airbyte, creating data pipelines take minutes, and the data integration possibilities are endless. Airbyte supports the largest catalog of API tools, databases, and files, among other sources. Airbyte's connectors are open-source, so you can add any custom objects to the connector, or even build a new connector from scratch without any local dev environment or any data engineer within 10 minutes with the no-code connector builder.
