MongoDB – Why nosql or mongodb?

Performance
MongoDB tends to be faster than relational DB when it comes to retrieving data. NoSQL database scales horizontally and is designed to scale to hundreds of millions and even billions of users doing updates as well as reads

Relational DB tends to be faster on ad hoc queries, updates, and joins. But applications can be designed and developed in a way to avoid these use cases. For example: to update you can use primary keys to update.

Differences
NoSQL scales horizontally (add more servers) but SQL Relational DB scales vertically (add more memories).

SQL relational DB must know columns and data types of the data to store. NoSQL DB does not have to know columns and data types. A row in a SQL relational DB contains all columns even if they are empty. A row in a NoSQL DB may or may not have all columns.

Advantages
Big data.

Schema changes are problematic and time-consuming in the world of SQL. NoSQL is great when business requirements are not stable and keep changing. You don’t have to modify or alter table and column definitions which is a painful process.

Scalability.
