SQL and MongoDB are two different types of databases with different data models and query languages.

SQL databases are based on the relational model and use SQL as a query language to manipulate data.

MongoDB is a NoSQL database that uses a document-based data model and a flexible query language.

Here are some key differences between SQL and MongoDB to consider:

Data model: SQL databases store data in tables, while MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents.

Query language: SQL uses a standardized query language while MongoDB uses its own query language designed specifically for document-based data model.

Scaling: SQL databases are vertically scalable while MongoDB is horizontally scalable.

Development and maintenance: SQL databases are well-understood and widely used while MongoDB may require more specialized knowledge and effort.
