MongoDB employs a serialization format called "BSON" to store documents. A combination of the words "Binary" and "JSON" (JavaScript Object Notation), you can think of BSON as a binary representation of JSON documents. Unfortunately, the BSON serialization format has a size limitation of 16 MB. While that leaves plenty of headroom for most data types, for some large binary formats, MongoDB employs a separate specification called GridFS for storing and retrieving files.

Sorting a list of English words is simple enough because they rely on alphabetical ordering. Sorting a set of German, or French words, with all of their accents, or Chinese with their different characters is a lot harder. Sorting rules are specified through locales, which determine how accents are sorted, in which order the characters are in, and how to do case-insensitive sorting.
