MongoDB is an open-source cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with schemas.

MongoDB provides high availability with replica sets. A replica set consists of two or more copies of the data. Each replica set member may act in the role of primary or secondary replica at any time. All writes and reads are done on the primary replica by default. Secondary replicas maintain a copy of the data of the primary using built-in replication. Using MongoDB in the Contour Cloud secures your data both at rest and in motion while providing unprecedented reliability and performance.

MySQL is the world’s most popular open source database. With its proven performance, reliability and ease-of-use, MySQL has become the leading database choice for web-based applications, used by high profile web properties including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Yahoo! and many more.

Oracle drives MySQL innovation, delivering new capabilities to power next generation web, cloud, mobile and embedded applications.

If you develop websites or web applications then hosting MySQL in the Contour Cloud is a good choice for performance, reliability and cost. MySQL is an essential component of LAMP stack, which includes Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.

SQL Server is Microsoft’s relational database management system (RDBMS). It is a full-featured database primarily designed to compete against competitors such as Oracle and MySQL. You can take advantage of breakthrough scalability and performance by utilizing SQL Server in the Contour Cloud. Instances can be provisioned in seconds and accessed directly from your local machine.

SQL Server and the Contour Cloud protect data at rest and in motion with the least vulnerable database over the last seven years in the NIST vulnerabilities database.
