Amazon SimpleDB vs MongoDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon SimpleDB as "Highly available and flexible non-relational data store". Developers simply store and query data items via web services requests and Amazon SimpleDB does the rest. Behind the scenes, Amazon SimpleDB creates and manages multiple geographically distributed replicas of your data automatically to enable high availability and data durability. Amazon SimpleDB provides a simple web services interface to create and store multiple data sets, query your data easily, and return the results. Your data is automatically indexed, making it easy to quickly find the information that you need. There is no need to pre-define a schema or change a schema if new data is added later. And scale-out is as simple as creating new domains, rather than building out new servers. On the other hand, MongoDB is detailed as "The database for giant ideas". MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
Amazon SimpleDB belongs to "NoSQL Database as a Service" category of the tech stack, while MongoDB can be primarily classified under "Databases".
MongoDB is an open source tool with 16.3K GitHub stars and 4.1K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MongoDB's open source repository on GitHub.
