MongoDB vs Sequelize: What are the differences?

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; Sequelize: Easy-to-use multi sql dialect ORM for Node.js & io.js. Sequelize is a promise-based ORM for Node.js and io.js. It supports the dialects PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and MSSQL and features solid transaction support, relations, read replication and more.

MongoDB belongs to "Databases" category of the tech stack, while Sequelize can be primarily classified under "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)".

"Document-oriented storage" is the top reason why over 788 developers like MongoDB, while over 17 developers mention "Good ORM for node.js" as the leading cause for choosing Sequelize.

MongoDB and Sequelize are both open source tools. It seems that Sequelize with 18.9K GitHub stars and 2.99K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MongoDB with 16.2K GitHub stars and 4.08K GitHub forks.

Lyft, MIT, and Bodybuilding.com are some of the popular companies that use MongoDB, whereas Sequelize is used by WebbyLab, Hostr, and Decision6. MongoDB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2175 company stacks & 2143 developers stacks; compared to Sequelize, which is listed in 38 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.
