Couchbase vs. MongoDB™ for Query

This whitepaper explores how the popular NoSQL databases Couchbase and MongoDB™ differ significantly in their approach to query. Among many key differences, you’ll learn why:

• Couchbase provides the power and familiarity of SQL, while MongoDB requires developers to learn a proprietary language
• MongoDB puts the burden of optimizing queries on the developer while Couchbase’s declarative language shifts the burden to the database
• MongoDB’s complex query language can’t match Couchbase’s strong support for ANSI join constructs and advanced query optimization
