|MongoDB stores data in a JSON document.||Mysql stores data in table and row.|
|It is schema-less which means you can define your own class or structure to interact with MongoDB.||If you use MySQL database as we know it uses Structured Query Language so you can’t change the schema.|
|The license available for MongoDB is GPL V2/Commercial.||The license available for MySql is AGPL V3/Commercial.|
|The Application or Service is cloud-based then mongoDB is the better option for you to develop it.||Security and well structure collection is your high priority then you should go with the Mysql database.|
|Join Operation is not supported.||Join Operation is supported.|
|Risk is low compared to Mysql due to design.||There can be a risk of SQL injection attacks in MySQL.|
|If you have Real-time analytics, content management, the internet of things, mobile apps you can go for MongoDB.||If you have structured data with a clear schema you can go for MySql.|
