Simple concept: Property bag VS Hierarchical Object Store

[Question]: Ever wondered what the difference between Property bag and Hierarchical Object Store in SharePoint?

The big discovery for me was that:

 Property bag is store in the content database;

 Hierarchical Object Store in the config database.
