Going in MongoDB 4.2
There's a lot going into MongoDB 4.2, like on-demand materialized views, pipeline powered updates and distributed transactions. And as we cleared the way for those new features, so we moved on and various commands and options that were previously deprecated are now completely removed. Find out what here.
Coming in 4.2 - Compression, Key Rotation and Configuration
MongoDB 4.2 isn't just about new features for developers. Some of the changes are designed specifically with MongoDB operators and administrators in mind. In this Coming In 4.2 article, we take a look at some of those changes including new compression options, ways to reduce maintenance time and new ways to configure your MongoDB server.
Full-Text Search and Auto Scaling Coming To MongoDB Atlas
Among the many other announcements in the MongoDB World 2019 keynote were two MongoDB Atlas announcements which extend the power and reach of the managed platform for MongoDB users of any size. Full-Text Search enables users to leverage the power of Apache Lucene for text search. Auto Scaling builds upon current scaling options to enable an intelligent best-fit for workloads.
MongoDB 4.2 Previewed At MongoDB World
Taking the stage at MongoDB World today, CTO Eliot Horowitz highlighted some of the features in the forthcoming MongoDB 4.2 that extend its lead in database technology. Distributed Transactions, Field Level Encryption, Wildcard Indexes and On-Demand Materialized Views are top of that list.
Announcing the MongoDB Distributed Transactions Beta Program
It was just over 12 months ago that we announced we were bringing multi-document ACID transactions to MongoDB. We shipped the first beta code a couple of weeks later, and then after several thousand of you put transactions through their paces, went to General Availability (GA) as a part of the MongoDB 4.0 release in June 2018. We're now really excited to announce the next phase of this development with the introduction of Distributed Transactions, extending our multi-document ACID guarantees from replica sets to sharded clusters. As a result, it will now be even easier for you to address a complete range of use cases by enforcing transactional guarantees across high scale, globally distributed apps.
