@JJSagan said in Redis or MongoDB?:
I have been working with PostgreSQL for over two months. So far not a single issue. @Ben-Lubar did an amazing job, and continues to do so - see pull request here:
PostgreSQL is probably the best solution if you are hosting in AWS, since MongoDB is not available unless you can front 20K USD$ per year
I think that there must be some confusion. MongoDB is the same cost on Amazon as it is anywhere else, free. You must be thinking that using AWS requires you to not use a normal setup but some special AWS service. That's incorrect. You'd run MOngoDB the same as anywhere else, being on AWS might offer additional choices, but not fewer. There is no limitation or cost like you are thinking there. Even if you wanted a hosted MongoDB that you aren't responsible for, MongoDB's own Atlas service is VERY affordable and on AWS.
