Dear Parse Community,
For one of our projects we are currently considering a noSQL solution using Parse platform on top of AWS DocumentDB. There is not much information available on the web with regards to Parse coupled with DocumentDB.
In theory, it would suffice to “just point Parse to DocumentDB” as the latter is “Mongo 3.6 compatible”. I would not expect it to be this smooth in real life. My question is: Does anyone have (real life or test) experience with this combination?
I am particularly interested in the following two questions:
- Are there any compatibility limitations in AWS DocumentDB versus MongoDB that affect Parse?
- Is there a performance impact for using Parse with DocumentDB vs Parse with Mongo?
I am happy to share an update once I have tested the combination myself but would be grateful to hear from those who have tried this already. Alternatively, MongoDB Atlas is an option but I am particularly interested in DocumentDB in this case.
