Cloudant vs MongoDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cloudant as "Distributed database-as-a-service (DBaaS) for web & mobile apps". Cloudant’s distributed database as a service (DBaaS) allows developers of fast-growing web and mobile apps to focus on building and improving their products, instead of worrying about scaling and managing databases on their own. 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.
Cloudant and MongoDB are primarily classified as "NoSQL Database as a Service" and "Databases" tools respectively.
"JSON" is the top reason why over 8 developers like Cloudant, while over 788 developers mention "Document-oriented storage" as the leading cause for choosing MongoDB.
MongoDB is an open source tool with 16.2K GitHub stars and 4.08K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MongoDB's open source repository on GitHub.
