André Calçada, Jorge Bernardino


Document stores are a NoSQL (Not Only Structured Query Language) database type, made to deal with big amounts of data and considered to be very developer-friendly, but they have also attracted a large interest from researchers and practitioners. In this paper, we analyze and evaluate three of the most popular document stores Couchbase, CouchDB, and MongoDB, the evaluation is based on their functionalities. In this evaluation, we use the OSSpal methodology, which combines quantitative and qualitative measures to evaluate the software. We conclude that of these open-source document stores the best is MongoDB, followed by Couchbase, and CouchDB.
