Compose vs MongoDB Atlas: What are the differences?

What is Compose? We host databases for busy devs: production-ready, cloud-hosted, open source. Compose makes it easy to spin up multiple open source databases with just one click. Deploy MongoDB for production, take Redis out for a performance test drive, or spin up RethinkDB in development before rolling it out to production.

What is MongoDB Atlas? Deploy and scale a MongoDB cluster in the cloud with just a few clicks. MongoDB Atlas is a global cloud database service built and run by the team behind MongoDB. Enjoy the flexibility and scalability of a document database, with the ease and automation of a fully managed service on your preferred cloud.

Compose and MongoDB Atlas can be categorized as "MongoDB Hosting" tools.

Some of the features offered by Compose are:

  • One click, production-ready, cloud hosted MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL and RethinkDB, with additional databases in beta.

Every deployment features: database autoscaling based on data size usage - private VLAN, IP whitelisting, SSL, full-stack monitoring, custom alerts - HA and fault tolerance with automatic failover

On the other hand, MongoDB Atlas provides the following key features:

  • Global clusters for world-class applications. Support for 60+ cloud regions across AWS, Azure, & GCP.
  • Secure for sensitive data. Built-in security controls and features to meet your existing protocols and compliance standards.
  • Designed for developer productivity. Integrated tools to manipulate, visualize, and analyze your data. Execute code in real time in response to data changes.

"Simple to set up" is the primary reason why developers consider Compose over the competitors, whereas "MongoDB SaaS for and by Mongo, makes it so easy " was stated as the key factor in picking MongoDB Atlas.

According to the StackShare community, Compose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 82 company stacks & 19 developers stacks; compared to MongoDB Atlas, which is listed in 51 company stacks and 43 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Compose and MongoDB Atlas?
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Docker
The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
Composer
It is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you.
Kubernetes
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
