RDBMS vs MongoDB concepts

Although specific to MongoDB, most NOSQL solutions have equivalent concepts, including RavenDb.

Have you switched all or part of your data needs to a NOSQL solution? I’d like to hear how those implementations went, what issues you faced and how much of your data is still relational and why?
