MongoDB and Google Partnership Gains Momentum
In April 2022 MongoDB launched a pay-as-you-go Atlas service on Google Cloud Marketplace. As we said at the time, this offering provides developers with a simplified subscription experience and gives enterprises more freedom in how they run MongoDB on Google Cloud. Since that launch, we've had many hundreds of customers sign up from a wide range of industries including Retail, Automotive, Education, Media & Entertainment, Healthcare, and more. But that's not all that happened in the past six months. Developers clearly love to build data-rich applications with MongoDB Atlas, and just as clearly they love to bring that data to life through Google Cloud's data services like Google BigQuery, Vertex AI, and more. To indulge that developer affection for MongoDB + Google Cloud, the two companies have been busy integrating our managed services to help customers make data smarter, more intuitive, and easier to use—wherever developers choose. Making data smart Modern applications must be able to automate the process of capturing and processing the data within an application. Combining real-time, operational, and embedded analytics enables a business to influence and automate decision-making for the app and provide real-time insights for the user. This year MongoDB and Google Cloud have combined to deliver best-in-class, application-level analytics. For example, in the weeks leading up to Google Cloud Next ’22, Google Cloud and MongoDB announced integration of Google BigQuery and MongoDB Atlas, among other Google data announcements . Many enterprises turn to BigQuery for its powerful, simple approach to data warehousing needs, but applying it to data in MongoDB wasn't always straightforward. To make moving and transforming data between Atlas and BigQuery easier, the MongoDB and Google teams worked together to build Dataflow templates that make it simple to package a Dataflow pipeline for deployment. The two companies also announced the integration of Atlas and BigQuery with Vertex AI to bring the power of Google's machine learning/AI expertise to MongoDB data. Developers can access a reference architecture and demo for retail and finance fraud detection scenarios. More integrations will roll out over the coming months. All of which is great for customers. For years customers like Universe, part of Live Nation, have used MongoDB with Google Cloud services such as Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Dataflow, and BigQuery to build data pipelines and more. In early 2022, Forbes, a 100-year old leader in business journalism, turned to MongoDB and Google Cloud to deliver a recommendation engine for its journalists, which uses Google Cloud's machine learning services to make suggestions to appropriate contributors. These and other customers have discovered that MongoDB's data platform and Google's data services are truly better together. Making data intuitive All those data smarts don't amount to much if developers can't easily make use of them. Over the past six months, MongoDB and Google Cloud have further partnered to ensure a simple, intuitive developer experience. For example, we've made it incredibly easy to deploy a serverless, MEAN stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS) application with Google Cloud Run (you can read the how-to or watch a video tutorial). Similarly, we've also combined with Vercel to make it simple to build full-stack serverless apps. Serverless means you don't need to worry about any hassle associated with managing infrastructure, and Cloud Run means deployment is also a breeze. More collaboration like this will follow, all with the goal of reducing developer friction and making it easier to use stacks that combine Google and MongoDB products together. Additionally, we've made it straightforward for developers to extend their MongoDB applications with APIs using Google's Apigee, a platform for managing and securing their APIs. For example, developers increasingly turn to Apigee and MongoDB to help enterprises pull data from legacy systems without needing the cumbersome process of integrating legacy systems. Recently, the MongoDB connector has been released in pre-GA to help developers build their APIs with MongoDB even more quickly. Developers love these and other integrations. For example, Conrad, a leading European retailer, needed to find a way to build an online B2B marketplace for its own and third-party products. Conrad turned to Atlas and Google Cloud. Together, the companies partnered to help Conrad shift to a microservices-based architecture and delivered a simple, fast, and comprehensive data environment. In like manner, TIM, a global fixed, mobile, cloud, and data center service provider, has leaned on Atlas and Google Cloud to create a dynamic data infrastructure, which has led to a dramatic improvement in customer satisfaction scores. Making data omnipresent MongoDB has always put a premium on developer flexibility, which has not only meant unparalleled support for a wide variety of languages, frameworks, etc., but also flexibility in deployment, including multicloud. Google, for its part, has been a leader in multicloud with Anthos, a platform that enables enterprises to manage GKE clusters and workloads running on virtual machines across environments. It's a way for developers to build once and deploy anywhere, including at the edge, in the data center, or on another cloud, yet with a single cloud control plane. Very cool. Among other benefits, this is a great way for enterprises to meet regulatory and data sovereignty requirements. It is not, however, the only way enterprises can attain that benefit with MongoDB and Google Cloud. As recently announced, MongoDB and Google Cloud have collaborated to give European customers additional choice in where they can securely keep their data, by making MongoDB available on the T-Systems Sovereign Cloud powered by Google Cloud. Finally, MongoDB and Google Cloud have announced the availability of MongoDB Enterprise Advanced on Google Cloud Marketplace. As much as developers love cloud, sometimes they have the need to self-manage MongoDB. With this listing we together offer that freedom. Now is the time to give it a try MongoDB and Google keep giving developers increasingly rich ways to make use of data with operational, application-centered analytics and ML/AI, while also serving up a wide array of choices of where to run those applications. There are many reasons to run MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud, and one of the easiest is with our self-service, pay-as-you-go listing on Google Cloud Marketplace . Please give it a try and let us know what you think. Try our self-service, pay-as-you-go listing on Google Cloud Marketplace today.

7 Big Reasons to Upgrade to MongoDB 6.0
First announced at MongoDB World 2022, MongoDB 6.0 is now generally available and ready for download now. MongoDB 6.0 includes the capabilities introduced with the previous 5.1–5.3 Rapid Releases and debuts new abilities to help you address more use cases, improve operational resilience at scale, and secure and protect your data. The common theme in MongoDB 6.0 is simplification: Rather than forcing you to turn to external software or third-party tools, these new MongoDB capabilities allow you to develop, iterate, test, and release applications more rapidly. The latest release helps developers avoid data silos, confusing architectures, wasted time on integrating external tech, missed SLAs and other opportunities, and the need for custom work (such as pipelines for exporting data). Here’s what to expect in MongoDB 6.0. 1. Even more support for working with time series data Used in everything from financial services to e-commerce, time series data is critical for modern applications. Properly collected, processed, and analyzed, time series data provide a gold mine of insights — from user growth to promising areas of revenue — helping you grow your business and improve your application. First introduced in MongoDB 5.0, time series collections provide a way to handle these workloads without resorting to adding a niche technology and the resulting complexity. In addition, it was critical to overcome obstacles unique to time series data, such as high volume, storage and cost considerations, and gaps in data continuity (caused by sensor outages). Since its introduction, time series collections have been continuously updated and improved with a string of rapid releases . We began by introducing sharding for time series collections (5.1) to better distribute data, before rolling out columnar compression (5.2) to improve storage footprints, and finally moving on to densification and gap-filling (5.3) for allowing teams to run time series analytics — even when there are missing data points. As of 6.0, time series collections now include secondary and compound indexes on measurements, improving read performance and opening up new use cases like geo-indexing. By attaching geographic information to time series data, developers can enrich and broaden analysis to include scenarios involving distance and location. This could take the form of tracking temperature fluctuations in refrigerated delivery vehicles during a hot summer day or monitoring the fuel consumption of cargo vessels on specific routes. We’ve also improved query performance and sort operations. For example, MongoDB can now easily return the last data point in a series — rather than scanning the whole collection — for faster reads. You can also use clustered and secondary indexes to efficiently perform sort operations on time and metadata fields. 2. A better way to build event-driven architectures With the advent of applications like Seamless or Uber, users have come to expect real-time, event-driven experiences, such as activity feeds, notifications, or recommendation engines. But moving at the speed of the real world is not easy, as your application must quickly identify and act on changes in your data. Introduced in MongoDB 3.6, change streams provide an API to stream any changes to a MongoDB database, cluster, or collection, without the high overhead that comes from having to poll your entire system. This way, your application can automatically react, generating an in-app message notifying you that your delivery has left the warehouse or creating a pipeline to index new logs as they are generated. The MongoDB 6.0 release enriches change streams, adding abilities that take change streams to the next level. Now, you can get the before and after state of a document that’s changed, enabling you to send updated versions of entire documents downstream, reference deleted documents, and more. Further, change streams now support data definition language (DDL) operations, such as creating or dropping collections and indexes. To learn more, check out our blog post on change streams updates . 3. Deeper insights from enriched queries MongoDB’s aggregation capabilities allow users to process multiple documents and return computed results. By combining individual operators into aggregation pipelines, you can build complex data processing pipelines to extract the insights you need. MongoDB 6.0 adds additional capabilities to two key operators, $lookup and $graphlookup , improving JOINS and graph traversals, respectively. Both $lookup and $graphlookup now provide full support for sharded deployments. The performance of $lookup has also been upgraded. For instance, if there is an index on the foreign key and a small number of documents have been matched, $lookup can get results between 5 and 10 times faster than before. If a larger number of documents are matched, $lookup will be twice as fast as previous iterations. If there are no indexes available (and the join is for exploratory or ad hoc queries), then $lookup will yield a hundredfold performance improvement. The introduction of read concern snapshot and the optional atClusterTime parameter enables your applications to execute complex analytical queries against a globally and transactionally consistent snapshot of your live, operational data. Even as data changes beneath you, MongoDB will preserve point-in-time consistency of the query results returned to your users. These point-in-time analytical queries can span multiple shards with large distributed datasets. By routing these queries to secondaries, you can isolate analytical workloads from transactional queries with both served by the same cluster, avoiding slow, brittle, and expensive ETL to data warehouses. To learn more, visit our documentation . 4. More operators, less work Boost your productivity with a slate of new operators, which will enable you to push more work to the database — while spending less time writing code or manipulating data manually. These new MongoDB operators will automate key commands and long sequences of code, freeing up more developer time to focus on other tasks. For instance, you can easily discover important values in your data set with operators like $maxN , $minN , or $lastN . Additionally, you can use an operator like $sortArray to sort elements in an array directly in your aggregation pipelines. 5. More resilient operations From the beginning, MongoDB’s replica set design allows users to withstand and overcome outages. Initial sync is how a replica set member in MongoDB loads a full copy of data from an existing member — critical for catching up nodes that have fallen behind, or when adding new nodes to improve resilience, read scalability, or query latency. MongoDB 6.0 introduces initial sync via file copy, which is up to four times faster than existing, current methods. This feature is available with MongoDB Enterprise Server. In addition to the work on initial sync, MongoDB 6.0 introduces major improvements to sharding, the mechanism that enables horizontal scalability. The default chunk size for sharded collections is now 128 MB, meaning fewer chunk migrations and higher efficiency from both a networking perspective and in internal overhead at the query routing layer. A new configureCollectionBalancing command also allows the defragmentation of a collection in order to reduce the impact of the sharding balancer. 6. Additional data security and operational efficiency MongoDB 6.0 includes new features that eliminate the need to choose between secure data or efficient operations. Since its GA in 2019, client-side field-level encryption (CSFLE) has helped many organizations manage sensitive information with confidence, especially as they migrate more of their application estate into the public cloud. With MongoDB 6.0, CSFLE will include support for any KMIP-compliant key management provider. As a leading industry standard, KMIP streamlines storage, manipulation, and handling for cryptographic objects like encryption keys, certificates, and more. MongoDB’s support for auditing allows administrators to track system activity for deployments with multiple users, ensuring accountability for actions taken across the database. While it is important that auditors can inspect audit logs to assess activities, the content of an audit log has to be protected from unauthorized parties as it may contain sensitive information. MongoDB 6.0 allows administrators to compress and encrypt audit events before they are written to disk, leveraging their own KMIP-compliant key management system. Encryption of the logs will protect the events' confidentiality and integrity. If the logs propagate through any central log management systems or SIEM, they stay encrypted. Additionally, Queryable Encryption is now available in preview. Announced at MongoDB World 2022, this pioneering technology enables you to run expressive queries against encrypted data — only decoding the data when it is made available to the user. This ensures that data remains encrypted throughout its lifecycle, and that rich queries can be run efficiently without having to decrypt the data first. For a deep dive into the inner workings of Queryable Encryption, check out this feature story in Wired . 7. A smoother search experience and seamless data sync Alongside the 6.0 Major Release, MongoDB will also make ancillary features generally available and available in preview. The first is Atlas Search facets , which enable fast filtering and counting of results, so that users can easily narrow their searches and navigate to the data they need. Released in preview at MongoDB World 2022 , facets will now include support for sharded collections. Another important new addition is Cluster-to-Cluster Sync , which enables you to effortlessly migrate data to the cloud, spin up dev, test, or analytics environments, and support compliance requirements and audits. Cluster-to-Cluster Sync provides continuous, unidirectional data synchronization of two MongoDB clusters across any environment, be it hybrid, Atlas, on-premises, or edge. You’ll also be able to control and monitor the synchronization process in real time, starting, stopping, resuming, or even reversing the synchronization as needed. Ultimately, MongoDB 6.0’s new abilities are intended to facilitate development and operations, remove data silos, and eliminate the complexity that accompanies the unnecessary use of separate niche technologies. That means less custom work, troubleshooting, and confusing architectures — and more time brainstorming and building. MongoDB 6.0 is not an automatic upgrade unless you are using Atlas serverless instances. If you are not an Atlas user, download MongoDB 6.0 directly from the download center . If you are already an Atlas user with a dedicated cluster, take advantage of the latest, most advanced version of MongoDB. Here’s how to upgrade your clusters to MongoDB 6.0 .

MongoDB Atlas to Expand in the Middle East
We’re proud to announce further expansion in 2023 in the Middle East with the launch of MongoDB Atlas on AWS in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) region. MongoDB Atlas is now available in 22 AWS regions around the world, including eight Asia Pacific regions and three Middle East and Africa regions. The UAE region is an AWS Recommended Region , meaning it has three Availability Zones (AZ), bringing significant infrastructure to the Middle East. After the expansion in 2023, when you deploy a cluster in the UAE, Atlas automatically distributes replicas to the different AZs for higher availability. If there’s an outage in one zone, the Atlas cluster will automatically fail over to keep running in the other two. And you also will be able to deploy multi-region clusters with the same automatic failover built-in. We’re delighted that — as with customers in Bahrain, Cape Town, and more — United Arab Emirates organizations will be able to keep data in their own country, delivering low-latency performance and ensuring confidence in data locality. We’re confident our UAE customers in government, financial services, and utilities in particular will appreciate this upcoming capability as they build tools to improve citizens’ lives and better serve their local users.

Building Together: MongoDB Is Google Cloud’s Technology Partner of the Year for Data Management
Few companies can credibly claim to understand and work with data as effectively as Google, so when Google Cloud announced this week that MongoDB is the Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for Data Management, the award felt particularly meaningful. But if the honor was just a matter of two leaders in data management slapping each other on the back, it wouldn't be that interesting. No, what makes the award compelling is the customer success that Google Cloud and MongoDB have jointly enabled. We agree with Google Cloud's vision that "True transformation spans the entire business and enables every person to transform," and together have helped customers to achieve this. Some customers elect to run MongoDB Atlas, our fully managed database service, on Google Cloud because of its broad footprint (Atlas is available in 29 Google Cloud regions), cost/performance benefits, seamless security and scalability, and the recently launched pay-as-you-go option that simplifies subscriptions and can reduce costs. Others have gone further, choosing to take advantage of combining the best services from both companies, like using Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) or Google Cloud Run for their application tier and MongoDB for their data tier. And some choose Google Cloud so they can tie into Google services that are tightly integrated with MongoDB, including BigQuery, Datastream, and Dataproc. A few examples that show the ambition and innovation MongoDB and Google Cloud customers are bringing to their products: Precognitive combines device intelligence, advanced behavioral analytics, and a real-time decision engine to accurately detect and prevent fraud for online businesses. Using Google Cloud Bigtable as their data store for behavioral and device data, and MongoDB as the data store for everything else, Precognitive is able to capture and analyze vast amounts of data from around the world, in near real time, to combat fraud. Read our full story on how Precognitive uses MongoDB Atlas . Forbes , the world's largest business media brand, reaches more than 140 million people worldwide every month across a number of online and offline channels. The company needed to innovate its way through the global COVID-19 pandemic and turned to MongoDB Atlas running on Google Cloud to enable dramatically better agility. Among other initiatives, the publishing giant married MongoDB's flexible data schema with Google Cloud’s machine learning services to deliver a trending story recommendation engine for journalists. Read our full story on Forbes’ migration to Atlas — and the successes of that move . One of the things we love about working with Google Cloud is the company's pragmatic approach to solving customer problems. Customers tend to choose a predominant cloud vendor upon which to build the majority of their applications, and Google Cloud often serves this role. At Plaid , which helps retailers decipher the complexities of consumer behavior, the company chose to migrate its legacy databases to MongoDB Atlas running on Google Cloud, allowing it to tap into Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud Engine (GCE), Cloud BigTable, and BigQuery. But Plaid also needed to ensure it could run across multiple clouds, which Google Cloud enables with its Anthos service . MongoDB and Google Cloud, working together, deliver that multi-cloud experience for customers. Read our case study on Plaid, MongoDB, and Google Cloud .
