As for data, queries are expressed in JSON style. It is very easy to write and read Mongo queries - you use the same format that you manipulate every day when you build web applications.
-But the real power of MongoDB is that it is very scalable. It is very easy to add replicas (for replication, or for balancing eventual consistent read operations), and shards: when you get a high volume of data, you can set up a new server that will store only a part of the data. Mongo handles the query routing so that it is transparent for the developpers.
