MongoDB Atlas Expands Globally with AWS


We’re proud to announce our global expansion of MongoDB Atlas on AWS (Amazon Web Services) in the Middle East, Europe, and APAC. The launch of regions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Zurich, Spain, Hyderabad, and Melbourne expands availability of MongoDB Atlas to 27+ AWS regions around the world.

The UAE region is an AWS Recommended Region, meaning it has three Availability Zones (AZ), bringing significant infrastructure to the Middle East. 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 can also 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 now be able to keep data in their own country, delivering low-latency performance and ensuring confidence in data locality. UAE customers in government, financial services, and utilities in particular will benefit from this expansion.

In addition to the launch in the UAE region, MongoDB Atlas is now available in Zurich and Spain, expanding to our already strong presence in the EMEA and giving our customers the ability to build and run applications with data sovereignty requirements for the region. MongoDB was awarded AWS Marketplace Partner of the Year - EMEA for 2022, and we are committed to continuing to make Atlas easily accessible across the region.

Our expansion in APAC is also particularly exciting given the recent momentum of MongoDB Atlas on AWS in the region. Increased availability in India and Australia will help to secure the opportunity for APAC developers to have wider access to build with high performance. Companies like Open Government Products, Bendigo&Adelaide, Cathay Pacific, Dongwha, and Kasikorn will benefit from closer availability zones.

We’re confident our developers around the world will appreciate this capability as they build tools to improve citizens’ lives and better serve their local users.
