New features for MongoDB Atlas enable multi-region deployments with automated optimization recommendations to improve efficiency in the cloud
New York City, NY– December 18, 2017 – MongoDB Inc., (Nasdaq: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced the availability of MongoDB Atlas on AWS Marketplace. The company is also announcing several technology advancements for its fast-growing cloud database service that give customers improved performance, resilience and efficiency in the cloud.
MongoDB Atlas on AWS Marketplace
MongoDB Atlas launched in the summer of 2016 as a fully-managed cloud service for MongoDB on AWS. It is now available across 14 AWS regions and has thousands of customers that depend on MongoDB Atlas. The new availability of MongoDB Atlas on AWS Marketplace will make it easier for established Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers to buy and consume MongoDB Atlas. The cost of MongoDB Atlas will be integrated into a customer’s AWS bill, resulting in a single, simple payment.
“AWS nailed the importance of making it easy to consume and pay for cloud services, which are driving transformative innovations across many organizations,” said Sahir Azam, Vice President of Cloud, MongoDB. “Our latest go-to-market partnership with AWS will help bring MongoDB Atlas to the massive ecosystem of AWS marketplace customers.”
“Since MongoDB Atlas first launched on AWS, it has become a popular way for customers to run one of the leading NoSQL databases,” said Barry Russell, General Manager of Worldwide Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Service Catalog, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Our customers want easy-to-deploy SaaS solutions and the availability of MongoDB’s solution on AWS Marketplace allows the more than 160,000 active customers using software from AWS Marketplace to drive innovation and improve performance with integrated billing directly on AWS Marketplace.”
Cross-Region Replication, Performance Advisor and Storage Auto-Scaling
With the announcement of MongoDB 3.6 in November, the newest version of the most popular database for modern applications, MongoDB unveiled cross-region replication for MongoDB Atlas. This allows customers to easily build globally-distributed applications without the hassle of managing complex, multi-datacenter configurations. Using cross-region replication, customers can maintain continuous availability in the unlikely event of a cloud region outage and ensure a great customer experience by locating data close to users for fast, responsive access. Customers like Ticketek, the largest ticketing retailer in Australia and New Zealand, have already praised the value of this innovation.
“Cross-region replication will be instrumental as we expand our presence into new regions,” said Matt Cudworth, CTO, Ticketek, “MongoDB Atlas’s support for turnkey global distribution of our databases is game-changing for Ticketek and allows us to provide the best experience for customers, anywhere.” MongoDB Atlas includes deep monitoring and alerting capabilities that give teams complete visibility into the performance of their managed databases, allowing them to anticipate issues and proactively take the necessary steps to ensure an optimal experience for end customers. Today, MongoDB is also announcing new features for MongoDB Atlas that make it easier to efficiently optimize deployments, reduce costs and scale.
Automated index suggestions with the new Performance Advisor give customers a quick and simple way to see how to improve query performance without adding additional infrastructure resources. The Performance Advisor displays slow-running queries and automatically generates index suggestions to help improve their performance. This ensures that teams are best utilizing the resources they’ve provisioned, helping drive better performance with no additional cost.
Storage auto-scaling makes MongoDB management and capacity planning even easier. Enabled by default for all dedicated clusters, this new feature automatically provisions additional storage capacity when customers reach preset utilization thresholds. Storage auto-scaling occurs in the background, without causing any impact to database or application availability.
