Oh I remember this pain, many years ago, I was consulting a startup and they wanted all the latest buzz words in their stack. I tried to convince them to use rdbms but they insisted on using mongo because no-sql is the latest buzz. no-sql has its place but nothing can be more assuring than a data where relationships can be visualized. The amount of code I had to write just to make sure data being accessed is proper, The amount of cpu wasted by nodejs just to process data that could have been processed by a simple stored procedures or views.
