I am Selecting database: Always done MySQL but thinking about Redis or Mongo
The solution is not very relational at all but just storing documents. Could be MySQL, could be MongoDB och Redis but which one can take the highest number of connections from an API? I am thinking about having 20 webservers in a loadbalancing config. If we are talking about 100 users saving the same amount of json data which one can handle the most reuests?
