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:
SQL databases store data in tables, while MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents.
: SQL uses a standardized query language while MongoDB uses its own query language designed specifically for document-based data model.
: 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.
