    CouchDB

    Great for REST API development, if you want a small, fast server that will send and receive JSON structures, CouchDB is hard to beat. Not great for enterprise-level relational database querying (no kidding). While by definition, document-oriented databases are not relational, porting or migrating from relational, and using CouchDB as a backend is probably not a wise move as it's reliable, but It may not always be highly available.

    MongoDB Atlas

    It is suitable for database administrative operations that require a high level of speed, since by not working with conventional SQL it is possible to create data records faster, and therefore better manage work time. It is not necessary to create backend connections for the databases, since these backends of different web pages and applications automatically centralize the development data in a single place, which is useful when managing many services in parallel. It is much easier and faster to get a specific document based on special characteristics of your data, through the filtering system of MongoDB Atlas, since it manages large numbers of servers, and has a high capacity of data mimicry. The cluster shows a history of all the operations that have been performed during the day, so that it is easy to make job regressions in case you need to identify an error that occurred at some point during the day. All data from the MongoDB web application is automatically stored in the Atlas cloud.

    Pros

    CouchDB

    • It can replicate and sync with web browsers via PouchDB. This lets you keep a synced copy of your database on the client-side, which offers much faster data access than continuous HTTP requests would allow, and enables offline usage.
    • Simple Map/Reduce support. The M/R system lets you process terabytes of documents in parallel, save the results, and only need to reprocess documents that have changed on subsequent updates. While not as powerful as Hadoop, it is an easy to use query system that's hard to screw up.
    • Sharding and Clustering support. As of CouchDB 2.0, it supports clustering and sharding of documents between instances without needing a load balancer to determine where requests should go.
    • Master to Master replication lets you clone, continuously backup, and listen for changes through the replication protocol, even over unreliable WAN links.

    MongoDB Atlas

    • No infrastructure on our side. Free of management.
    • Easy to scale up and down.

    Cons

    CouchDB

    • NoSQL DB can become a challenge for seasoned RDBMS users.
    • The map-reduce paradigm can be very demanding for first-time users.
    • JSON format documents with Key-Value pairs are somewhat verbose and consume more storage.
    Johanes Siregar | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MongoDB Atlas

    • Live Migration Service.

    Because our current solution S3 is working great and CouchDB was a nightmare. The worst is that at first, it seemed fine until we filled it with tons of data and then started to create views and actually delete.

    Couchdb is very simple to use and the features are also reduced but well implemented. In order to use it the way its designed, the ui is adequate and easy. Of course, there are some other task that can't be performed through the admin ui but the minimalistic design allows you to use external libraries to develop custom scripts

    We love MongoDB support and have great relationship with them. When we decided to go with MongoDB Atlas, they sent a team of 5 to our company to discuss the process of setting up a Mongo cluster and walked us through. when we have questions, we create a ticket and they will respond very quickly

    it support is minimal also hw requirements. Also for development, we can have databases replicated everywhere and the replication is automagical. once you set up the security and the rules for replication, you are ready to go. The absence of a model let you build your app the way you want it

    Alternatives Considered

    CouchDB

    It has been 5+ years since we chose CouchDB. We looked an MongoDB, Cassandra, and probably some others. At the end of the day, the performance, power potential, and simplicity of CouchDB made it a simple choice for our needs. No one should use just because we did. As I said early, make sure you understand your problems, and find the right solution.Some random reading that might be useful:http://www.julianbrowne.com/article/viewer/brewers-cap-theoremhttps://www.couchbase.com/nosql-resources/why-nosql\https://www.infoq.com/articles/cap-twelve-years-later-how-the-rules-have-changed

    MongoDB Atlas

    When choosing a NoSQL, open source database, MongoDB is the clear winner from an implementation standpoint. For databases that are better suited for highly-organized data, a traditional database engine like MySQL, PostgreSQL, or Oracle's RDBMS may be a better choice. When the requirement is for a NoSQL production database, MongoDB and Atlas are the clear winners from an implementation and management perspective and is very cost-competitive with offerings from Azure Cosmos and Amazon Document DB.

    Return on Investment

    CouchDB

    • It has saved us hours and hours of coding.
    • It is has taught us a new way to look at things.
    • It has taught us patience as the first few weeks with CouchDB were not pleasant. It was not easy to pick up like MongoDB.
    LeVar Berry | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MongoDB Atlas

    • Since we can cover a much more exhaustive database management with MongoDB Atlas, we can say that we have partly increased our profit intake in relation to the time we have been using the software.
    • MongoDB Atlas has improved our earnings by 400%, which leaves our current ROI at a percentage of 5, having achieved our first 200% in the first half year of using the software.
