Ummm can't to just scale up your Mongo instances??
Also what are you using instead of Mongo?
This is a pretty vague post 🤷‍♂️

I think the point is that if you're using something like postgres you won't need to scale the instances at the same rate, which is mostly true. Mongo is not something I use in production but it's excellent for prototypes.

First, it is the viewpoint of the customers, in this case, the entrepreneurs. They aren't happy with MongoDB.

It's not my word but I agree with it

And how to scale? Mysql and replication, Postgresql and replication, Oracle and replication, Cluster,etc. Sql Server and idem. Cassandra too. Microservice, CQRS, cache, Redis, etc. etc.

So basically it sounds like you always go SQL over NoSQL? And prefer to scale vertically?

I mean there's a lot of big companies that use Mongo. What do you use for a NoSQL replacement
