Cloud Foundry vs MongoDB Stitch: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cloud Foundry as "Deploy and scale applications in seconds on your choice of private or public cloud". Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications. On the other hand, MongoDB Stitch is detailed as "Backend as a Service for web and mobile applications". MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastructure. Stitch lets you focus on building the app users want, not on writing boilerplate backend logic.
Cloud Foundry and MongoDB Stitch can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Cloud Foundry are:
- Application and services centric lifecycle API
- High performance dynamic routing
- Buildpack support
On the other hand, MongoDB Stitch provides the following key features:
- REST API to MongoDB Atlas
- Declarative data access controls
- Service integrations (AWS S3, Twilio...)
