MongoDB Stitch vs Stackato: What are the differences?
What is MongoDB Stitch? 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.
What is Stackato? Enterprise ready private PaaS based on the Cloud Foundry open-source project and Docker. Stackato runs on top of your cloud infrastructure, and is the middleware from which your applications are launched. Developers simply upload their application source files to Stackato via IDE or command-line. Stackato automatically configures the required language runtimes, web frameworks, and data and messaging services.
MongoDB Stitch and Stackato can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by MongoDB Stitch are:
- REST API to MongoDB Atlas
- Declarative data access controls
- Service integrations (AWS S3, Twilio...)
On the other hand, Stackato provides the following key features:
- Web console
- Activity timeline
