Microsoft's Added MongoDB Driver Support to DocumentDB
FREMONT, CA: Microsoft’s DocumentDB, a fully managed NoSQL database service built for fast and predictable performance, and ease of development now supports drivers for MongoDB, the cross platform document oriented Database. The new update allows existing MongoDB users to use them with DocumentDB taking the advantages of Microsoft’s cloud architecture even building a hybrid infrastructure with DocumentDB and another MongoDB-compatible database service. The update in addition offers ability for Parse-powered apps to communicate with DocumentDB using MongoDB instructions.
NoSQL document databases offers simple, fast, scalable solutions to store and process data while preserving the ability to quickly iterate over application data models and unstructured data feeds. DocumentDB is a true schema-free NoSQL database service designed for modern mobile, web, gaming, and IoT applications. DocumentDB delivers consistently fast reads and writes, schema flexibility, and the ability to easily scale a database up and down on demand without requiring any schema for the JSON documents it indexes.
Whereas MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database, that is classified as a NoSQL database. MongoDB uses the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc. and is published as free and open-source software under a combination of the GNU Affero (General Public License) and the Apache License.
DocumentDB and MongoDB offer a delightful work experience, where both drivers offer support for multiple languages and DocumentDB’s built-in support for async in C# adds a nice touch.
