MongoDB vs NuoDB: What are the differences?

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.

What is NuoDB? A scale-out SQL database for global operations. NuoDB’s continuously available, ACID-compliant, SQL database delivers on-demand capacity on commodity hardware across multiple data centers.

MongoDB and NuoDB belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

MongoDB is an open source tool with 16.3K GitHub stars and 4.1K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MongoDB's open source repository on GitHub.

          What are some alternatives to MongoDB and NuoDB?
          Amazon DynamoDB
          All data items are stored on Solid State Drives (SSDs), and are replicated across 3 Availability Zones for high availability and durability. With DynamoDB, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available distributed database cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
          Couchbase
          Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
          MySQL
          The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
          PostgreSQL
          PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
          Cassandra
          Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.

          Used MongoDB as primary database. It holds trip data of NYC taxis for the year 2013. It is a huge dataset and it's primary feature is geo coordinates with pickup and drop off locations. Also used MongoDB's map reduce to process this large dataset for aggregation. This aggregated result was then used to show visualizations.

          MongoDB fills our more traditional database needs. We knew we wanted Trello to be blisteringly fast. One of the coolest and most performance-obsessed teams we know is our next-door neighbor and sister company StackExchange. Talking to their dev lead David at lunch one day, I learned that even though they use SQL Server for data storage, they actually primarily store a lot of their data in a denormalized format for performance, and normalize only when they need to.

          Nearly all of our backend storage is on MongoDB. This has also worked out pretty well. It's enabled us to scale up faster/easier than if we had rolled our own solution on top of PostgreSQL (which we were using previously). There have been a few roadbumps along the way, but the team at 10gen has been a big help with thing.

          We are testing out MongoDB at the moment. Currently we are only using a small EC2 setup for a delayed job queue backed by agenda. If it works out well we might look to see where it could become a primary document storage engine for us.

          Used for proofs of concept and personal projects with a document data model, especially with need for strong geographic queries. Often not chosen in long term apps due to chance data model can end up relational as needs develop.
