        We went with MongoDB , almost by mistake. I had never used it before, but I knew I wanted the *EAN part of the MEAN stack, so why not go all in. I come from a background of SQL (first MySQL , then PostgreSQL ), so I definitely abused Mongo at first... by trying to turn it into something more relational than it should be. But hey, data is supposed to be relational, so there wasn't really any way to get around that.

        There's a lot I love about MongoDB, and a lot I hate. I still don't know if we made the right decision. We've been able to build much quicker, but we also have had some growing pains. We host our databases on MongoDB Atlas , and I can't say enough good things about it. We had tried MongoLab and Compose before it, and with MongoDB Atlas I finally feel like things are in a good place. I don't know if I'd use it for a one-off small project, but for a large product Atlas has given us a ton more control, stability and trust.

        How developers use MongoDB Atlas and MongoDB Compass

        Matt Welke uses MongoDB AtlasMongoDB Atlas

        When creating small proofs of concept or personal projects with document data models, that require a lot of data storage but don't warrant paying for hosting, I use Atlas because of the 500 MB free tier and ease of setup.

        Often paired with AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions.
