I’ve seen enough entrepreneurs make the same mistake over and over again. For instance, they choose technologies for their MVPs and complete mobile app solutions without understanding the backend development needs, especially the cloud storage and database.

In short, you need to understand the technical usage of every database and then decide the one that’s right for your product.

Have a look at this blog that I found.  Which database is better? Firebase vs MongoDB

It gives straight comparisons without any long stories.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Since you quote verbatim from that web page, I'm guessing that by "I found it" you mean "I wrote it" :-) I'm going to move this post to a more suitable location.

When comparing MongoDB vs Google Firebase, the Slant community recommends MongoDB for most people. In the question“What are the best non-relational databases for web apps?” MongoDB is ranked 1st while Google Firebase is ranked 6th. The most important reason people chose MongoDB is:

MongoDB has powerful sharding and scaling capabilities for when the data stored in the database gets so large that a single machine may not be able to store all of it. Sharding solves this problem through horizontal scaling. Mongo gives developers the ability to easily and painlessly add or remove as many machines as needed.

My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
