How Do I Know Which Database to Choose?

There are lots of open source database options out there for you. You can choose from a relational database, like MySQL or PostgreSQL; or a NoSQL choice like MongoDB. You can run the database on premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both. But, how do you go about making the best decision for your company?

In this white paper, we’ll compare basic use cases for three common database products: MongoDB®, MySQL®, and PostgreSQL®. All of these are available as open source databases and they have different, often complementary, use cases.
