AWS Raised Its Hand Lest Of Open Source Platform
Currently, AWS has its latest database DocumentDB being launched so as to offer better compatibility with the MongoDB API. This new database will be quick, measurable, and vastly accessible document database that is created in such a pattern that it will be compatible with the present MongoDB tools and applications. It is a designed substitution version for MongoDB as it does not use much of the MongoDB code.
Even though AWS stands by MongoDB as the best the customers find it difficult to build and vastly accessible applications on the open-source platform can range from multiple terabytes to hundreds of thousands of reads and writes per second. Thus, the company built its own document database with an Apache 2.0 open source MongoDB 3.6 API compatibility. The open-sources politics are quite difficult to grasp. AWS has been blamed for taking the top open-source projects and re-branding plus re-using it without providing the communities. The catch here is that MongoDB was the company behind putting a halt to the re-licensing of the open-source tools under a novel license that clearly stated the companies willing to do this will have to purchase a commercial license.
The MongoDB’s document models popularity is the reason Amazon can capitalize on it. But, the tech-savvy developers can well differentiate between imitation and the real thing. MongoDB will persist to smash any masquerades in the market. AWS love for MongoDB is believed to exist due to the consumption rate and also the customers’ willingness to try out the best options available. Eliot Horowitz, co-founder of MongoDB, AWS in order to meet its customer’s demand has offered an imitation MongoDB service based on the 2 Years age MongoDB code. The real MongoDB can be differentiated from the imitation versions owing to the developers’ hard work and precision with handling data. MongoDB’s DocumentDB is compatible with 3.6 API which is 2 years old and lacks features like mobile sync, ACID transactions, and global clusters. AWS is active on open source and its MongoDB’s license by clearing API comparability can help the company be endeared on the open-source community by remaining alert of MongoDB.
