Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, reliable, and fully managed database service. Amazon DocumentDB makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale MongoDB-compatible databases in the cloud. With Amazon DocumentDB, you can run the same application code and use the same drivers and tools that you use with MongoDB.

Amazon DocumentDB supports MongoDB v4.0 and MongoDB v5.0. These versions don't support all the newer features and functionality in the versions of MongoDB available on MongoDB Atlas.
