What is the difference between Atlas and Compass?

Hey people,

I am having this confusion starting off with MongoDB. I believe the come as a package, Atlas takes care of the DaaS part and Compass is the actual GUI where you can see your data.

This implies we cannot see the data with the help of Atlas, it is a mere configurator of the database. Is my understanding correct?


Hi @Aashish_Chaubey,

That’s not correct. You can do data manipulation in Atlas. There are a lot of MongoDB cloud products which are stitched together with Atlas which make it much more powerful. If you want to manipulate the data or sth then here are the steps :

  1. Login to your Atlas account
  2. Click on Collections

Hope it helps!
