Competition is fierce so most businesses have to introduce new products and services to market faster than ever before while also lowering costs. Technologies that support modern software development practices have sprung up to meet these requirements. Cloud computing is just one of the many technologies born out of this competitive environment and popular solutions such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) are leading the way.
Cloud computing as a solution is made up the software, hardware, and services offered by a third party like AWS and delivered over a cloud-based network. Increasingly, companies are turning to cloud computing as a means to get their applications up and running quickly at a lower cost.
NoSQL databases have also become increasingly popular for the same reasons – greater efficiency, lower cost – and work much better over the cloud than older relational technologies. The most popular of these NoSQL technologies is MongoDB with over 10 million downloads, an avid developer community, and robust partner network. Running your MongoDB cluster on AWS is a popular choice for thousands of enterprises. MongoDB was built for cloud deployments with a scale-out architecture and native replication for high availability.
It’s easy to get started hosting your MongoDB cluster on AWS. MongoDB’s Cloud Manager management solution lets you automatically provision virtual machines on AWS with an optimal configuration for MongoDB. Using AWS and MongoDB together is especially great if you need to run high-performance operations on large datasets.
With MongoDB on AWS, you benefit from:
- Lower costs to run your deployment. You enjoy significant cost savings from running MongoDB on AWS in comparison to running on premise. You don’t need to host your own infrastructure or buy extra capacity to meet demand.
- Flexibility to scale up or down your resources to align with system demand whether it’s a planned or unanticipated event.
- Reliability. With AWS, you have servers situated in different locations across the globe. This lets you service local users locally and minimizes the risk of widespread system outage in case of a server being down.
Companies of all sizes across different industries are increasingly choosing to host their MongoDB cluster on AWS. Cloud Manager helps you keep your deployment humming along.
