Is it possible to connect to an external mongo db or some other no sql database to get some data?

I don't mean to have no sql database as the main joomla installation. Joomla is installed to mariadb but I need to get data from third no sql database preferable mongo db.

Is it possible?

I haven't found any tutorial on this.

Yes, it is possible, but this falls outside of the Joomla realm and you'll need to develop it yourself.
