node.js database


I'm looking for a database to pair with a node.js app. I'm assuming a json/nosql db would be preferable to a relational DB [I can do without any json/sql impedance mismatch]. I'm considering:

  • couchdb
  • mongodb
  • redis

Anyone have any views / war stories re compatiability/deployability of the above with node.js? Any clear favorites?

I'm the developer of the mongodb driver for node.js. I'm using mongodb for my own projects and have been very happy with the performance of mongodb.

Mongodb driver for node.js

(Shameless plug) Feel free to ask any questions about the driver at

Google group for the mongodb driver

or here at Stackoverflow

Have fun with node.js. I absolutely love the platform :D
