Welcoming the Grainite Team to MongoDB: Accelerating Atlas Stream Processing

Sahir Azam

Tens of thousands of customers and millions of developers rely on MongoDB Atlas to run business-critical applications because of its flexible document data model and ability to work with virtually any type of data using a single, intuitive developer data platform that can run on all major cloud providers. Earlier this year, we announced that we would enable developers to apply the benefits of the document model and a unified interface to streaming data with Atlas Stream Processing. In a short amount of time, we have seen a strong response from developers eager to use this capability to simplify building event-driven applications.

To accelerate the development of our streaming offering, we are thrilled to announce that the team behind Grainite — a streaming application platform, backed by Sequoia Capital and Menlo Ventures, that makes it easy to read, process, store, and query events in real-time — has now joined MongoDB. Grainite was founded by world-class technologists Ashish Kumar, who spent over ten years running structured storage products and other high-scale infrastructure projects at Google, and Abhishek Chauhan, who previously served as CTO of Cloud Networking at Citrix. Ashish and Abhishek bring with them a team of talented engineers to MongoDB who will help accelerate the development of Atlas Stream Processing and the release of new capabilities that will make it even easier for customers to process and analyze streaming data for real-time application experiences.

“We’re excited to be joining a company that shares our vision for making it effortless to build event-driven applications,” said Kumar. “We’re looking forward to continuing to develop a world-class streaming platform that will make it easier for developers to incorporate real-time data into their applications and becoming part of an organization that can significantly amplify the reach and impact of event-driven applications for developers and end users.”

We look forward to welcoming the Grainite team to MongoDB and sharing updates on Atlas Stream Processing and our broader streaming roadmap in the near future.
