Compose vs MongoLab: What are the differences?

What is Compose? We host databases for busy devs: production-ready, cloud-hosted, open source. Compose makes it easy to spin up multiple open source databases with just one click. Deploy MongoDB for production, take Redis out for a performance test drive, or spin up RethinkDB in development before rolling it out to production.

What is MongoLab? Database-as-a-Service for MongoDB. mLab is the largest cloud MongoDB service in the world, hosting over a half million deployments on AWS, Azure, and Google.

Compose and MongoLab can be categorized as "MongoDB Hosting" tools.

"Simple to set up" is the primary reason why developers consider Compose over the competitors, whereas "Development free tier" was stated as the key factor in picking MongoLab.

According to the StackShare community, MongoLab has a broader approval, being mentioned in 102 company stacks & 40 developers stacks; compared to Compose, which is listed in 82 company stacks and 19 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Compose and MongoLab?
      Docker Compose
      With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
      Docker
      The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
      Composer
      Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you.
      Kubernetes
      Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
      Docker Swarm
      Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.

      MongoLab's customer service has been amazing. We're transitioning from MongoHQ (now Compose.io) and they're making the process seamless. A++ would buy again.
