Couchbase and MongoDB™ are both popular NoSQL databases, but significant differences in their architectures and features make Couchbase the better choice for demanding enterprise requirements. This whitepaper focuses specifically on their approaches to query.
Among their many key differences, you’ll learn how Couchbase provides developers with the power and familiarity of SQL while MongoDB requires them to learn a proprietary language. You’ll see how MongoDB puts the burden of optimizing queries on the developer while Couchbase’s declarative language shifts the burden to the database. And you’ll discover why MongoDB’s complex query language can’t match Couchbase’s strong support for ANSI join constructs and advanced query optimization.
