Managed databases help to reduce your operating overhead, allowing developers and analysts to focus on extracting maximum value from your data.
Managed databases are cloud-based, on-demand database engines. A managed database service includes everything required to run your databases from the cloud – infrastructure, database engine, management tools – with no need to worry about licensing. Availability is typically guaranteed by a service-level agreement.
The database service provider is responsible for time-consuming, low-level operations such as platform management and optimization.
Service providers may also typically include intuitive, web-based user interface for managing various administrative tasks, such as:
Databases are a critical component in any application architecture. Prior to the rise of cloud-based databases, an organization had to collect all the database resources ahead of time and hire a separate team to keep up with hardware and software technologies. Managing them was complex and time-consuming, requiring a deep level of expertise.
We all want our database to be secure, monitored, reliable, scalable, robust, and high-performing. These characteristics are not simple to achieve, requiring skilled administrators to keep up with the performance of ever-growing databases. For these reasons, many organizations are moving to managed database services that can help scale databases and focus on business value.
There are many different types of managed databases that are all available in managed form. Modern databases like MongoDB that prioritize horizontal scalability (adding more computers to share the workload) become dramatically simpler to operate in fully managed form. If you’re already running a self-managed MongoDB database or operating your own database on-premises, fully managed services like MongoDB Atlas can make a huge difference in your productivity.
MongoDB Atlas is a cloud database service (sometimes referred to as managed MongoDB hosting) for deploying fully managed MongoDB across AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure, and guarantees availability, scalability, and compliance with most demanding data security environments using best-in-class automation.
Managed databases make creating, optimizing, and scaling your application much simpler.
Choosing a managed database service delivers some significant benefits. In addition to escaping the limitations of on-premises hardware resources, choosing a popular managed database service like MongoDB Atlas provides the following benefits:
