etcd vs MongoDB: What are the differences?
What is etcd? A distributed consistent key-value store for shared configuration and service discovery. etcd is a distributed key value store that provides a reliable way to store data across a cluster of machines. It’s open-source and available on GitHub. etcd gracefully handles master elections during network partitions and will tolerate machine failure, including the master.
What is MongoDB? 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.
etcd belongs to "Open Source Service Discovery" category of the tech stack, while MongoDB can be primarily classified under "Databases".
"Service discovery" is the primary reason why developers consider etcd over the competitors, whereas "Document-oriented storage" was stated as the key factor in picking MongoDB.
etcd and MongoDB are both open source tools. etcd with 25.9K GitHub stars and 5.26K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MongoDB with 16.3K GitHub stars and 4.1K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, MongoDB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2189 company stacks & 2225 developers stacks; compared to etcd, which is listed in 27 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
