What's your favorite NoSQL DB?

I've worked mainly with just MongoDB.

Tho, there are other alternatives like Redis, DynamoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, HBase, CouchDB and lots of others.

What is your favorite NoSQL database and why?

Mongodb - since that’s the only one I have tried in my production app.
I have used Redis for caching and also for async jobs. It is good as a in-memory DB but gets costly very quickly for complex needs.

Never tried Neo4j and dgraph, but they look like good contenders.

I might try Faunadb in the near future.
