Developers have the freedom to deploy, manage, and scale MongoDB on the cloud of their choice using its database as a service
NEW YORK, NY – June 20, 2017 – MongoDB, the database for giant ideas, today announced that MongoDB Atlas, its cloud database as a service, is now available to users all over the world on the top three public cloud platforms. MongoDB Atlas has extended its availability beyond Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure, delivering on MongoDB’s vision of running MongoDB anywhere, in any environment.
The addition of support for Azure and GCP allows teams to easily gain the productivity benefits from MongoDB’s flexible data model and expressive query language on their preferred public cloud. Organizations can feel confident that their managed MongoDB deployments are in close proximity to their applications, secure, always on, and fully elastic.
“MongoDB Atlas is the best-of-breed database for building modern applications, delivered as a secure, elastic, on-demand service offering,” said Sahir Azam, VP of Cloud Products, MongoDB. “By extending availability of MongoDB Atlas across AWS and now to Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure, we’re ensuring that MongoDB users everywhere can easily leverage the database with the cloud services they want, all without worrying about the operational overhead of running the database according to best practices.”
“We are excited to have MongoDB offer its next-generation database as a service on Google Cloud Platform,” said Adam Massey, Director, Strategic Technology Partners, Google Cloud. “The combination of MongoDB Atlas and GCP gives developers more choice when building and scaling secure, high-performance, global applications.”
“MongoDB has become a popular NoSQL database solution so we’re pleased that developers have the option of using MongoDB Atlas on Microsoft Azure,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Azure, Microsoft Corp. “It also reinforces our commitment to supporting open source solutions as first-class citizens on Azure.”
MongoDB Atlas frees developers from worrying about operational tasks such as provisioning, configuration, patching, upgrades, backups, and failure recovery – so they can focus on building applications. It delivers high availability with an architecture that is fault-tolerant and self-healing. With comprehensive monitoring and continuous backups built in, MongoDB Atlas provides unparalleled visibility into key metrics and granular, point-in-time recovery at the click of a button. The service delivers high throughput and low latency for read and write operations for the most demanding workloads at virtually any scale. Multiple levels of security, some of which are enabled by default, ensure that application data is always secure through MongoDB Atlas.
“With MongoDB Atlas on Azure, Sitecore customers now have the benefit of sourcing MongoDB directly from its creators,” said Ryan Donovan, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Sitecore. “This, coupled with MongoDB’s enterprise-class support and service levels, delivers a vehicle that seamlessly complements Sitecore’s strong commitment to the Microsoft Azure cloud.”
Launched in June of last year, MongoDB Atlas has seen significant growth and already has thousands of active users, including industry leaders such as eHarmony and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Atlas was highlighted recently in a Forrester Research report on the Database-as-a-Service market for gaining quick momentum* and named a winner of InfoWorld's 2017 Technology of the Year Award.
