Companies of all sizes have been turning to cloud services to get a leg up on the competition. With cloud-based applications and databases, you can get started in mere minutes and at much lower cost than you could by hosting your own application and infrastructure. In these hyper competitive times, the significant time and cost savings afforded by cloud computing can spell the difference between a company’s success or failure.
Microsoft Azure is the cloud services offering that lets companies develop, host and manage their application environment through Microsoft data centers. MongoDB, the leading NoSQL database built for the cloud, and Microsoft have collaborated to bring MongoDB to the Azure cloud. Together MongoDB Azure provides enterprises across industries the tools to realize scalable applications in the cloud.
Customers benefit from the MongoDB Azure partnership by:
- Realizing lower cost. As opposed to hosting on premise where you need to make heavy investments upfront, you only pay for the infrastructure you need when you host your application in the cloud.
- Being able to easily scale resources up or down to adjust to current demand. No need to buy more resources in anticipation of unpredictable spikes in user traffic.
- Running a reliable deployment. Azure situates their servers globally. The result is lower latency by being able to serve users locally and minimized risk of system outage in case one of the servers goes down due to unanticipated events or disaster.
Savvy enterprises who want to compete and thrive take advantage of cloud services. When they do, they also overwhelming choose MongoDB to build their database deployment in the cloud. An Azure integration means MongoDB users have the right tools at their disposal to limitlessly grow their applications in the cloud.
The best way to run your database is through Cloud Manager, MongoDB's management solution, if you’re hosting a MongoDB deployment on Azure. Trying Cloud Manager is risk-free as you get 30-days of free access when you sign up. So start your trial today.
