MongoDB Stitch vs Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes: What are the differences?
Developers describe MongoDB Stitch as "Backend as a Service for web and mobile applications". MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastructure. Stitch lets you focus on building the app users want, not on writing boilerplate backend logic. On the other hand, Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes is detailed as "Elasticsearch & Kibana on Kubernetes". Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes simplifies setup, upgrades, snapshots, scaling, high availability, security, and more for running Elasticsearch and Kibana in Kubernetes for one or many use cases.
MongoDB Stitch and Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by MongoDB Stitch are:
- REST API to MongoDB Atlas
- Declarative data access controls
- Service integrations (AWS S3, Twilio...)
On the other hand, Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes provides the following key features:
- Store local, search Global
- Fully-featured clusters
- Secure by default
