New to MongoDB Atlas — Free Fully Managed Databases on Google Cloud Platform

Facebook ShareLinkedin ShareReddit ShareTwitter Share

Today we’re excited to announce that the MongoDB Atlas free tier — which provides access to a fully managed M0 cluster with 512 MB of storage at no cost — is now available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

We launched the MongoDB Atlas database as a service on GCP one year ago at MongoDB World 2017. Since then, we’ve made significant product enhancements, culminating in the most powerful MongoDB service for developers building their applications on Google’s expanding ecosystem of cloud services. For example, we launched Atlas into 13 Google cloud regions earlier this year, and added the ability for customers to replicate their data to any number of regions for fast, responsive read access and multi-region fault tolerance.

Companies like Longbow Advantage, a supply chain partner to Del Monte Foods and Subaru of America, are using MongoDB Atlas on GCP to accelerate innovation and stay agile and efficient in their development life cycles.

We wanted to ensure that our team could remain focused on the application and not have to worry about the underlying infrastructure. Atlas allowed us to do just that.

The availability of the Atlas free tier on GCP will make it easier than ever for developers using the cloud platform to experiment in an optimized environment for MongoDB, with no barrier to entry. The M0 cluster is ideal for learning MongoDB, prototyping, or early development, and has built-in security, availability, and fully managed upgrades.

The Atlas free tier on GCP is available in 3 regions:

  • Iowa (us-central1)
  • Belgium (europe-west1)
  • Singapore (asia-southeast1)

MongoDB Atlas is available in 13 GCP regions

Getting started is simple. When building a new cluster in MongoDB Atlas, select GCP as the cloud provider and then select the region closest to your application server(s) with the "Free tier available" label.

Then, in the Cluster Tier tab, select the M0 cluster size.

Finally, name your cluster.

That's it. We're excited to see what you build with MongoDB Atlas and GCP!
