|The past 2 years seem to have been the death knell for Mongo and the "NoSQL" hype, with Mongo moving toward SQL parity and SQL databases supporting JSON storage, like Postgres with JSONB.|
At this point it seems that there are very few workloads for which Mongo is the best option compared to Postgres+JSONB. I'm wondering...
1) Have you ever chosen Postgres over Mongo, and regretted it? Why? Did you end up switching to Mongo? Was it better?
2) Can anyone name a use case where Mongo is clearly a better choice than Postgres+JSONB?
