Your organization must meet the following criteria to receive support from MongoDB:
The Startup Accelerator program is currently closed.
MongoDB first shipped in August 2009. Early versions of the product were focused on the validating a new, and largely unproven approach to database design – distributed, non-relational, and built on the document data model. Those early releases attracted masses of real-world adoption across a whole range of startups and enterprises.
With early usage validating this new approach to building a modern database, MongoDB’s engineering focus moved to industrializing the database for use by the broader developer community, beyond bleeding-edge innovators. Major enhancements in scalability, query functionality, and cloud services have followed. And there’s plenty more coming…..
I last looked at MongoDB 3 years ago. What’s changed?
WiredTiger storage engine, document level locking, and built-in compression for an order of magnitude more scalability
Fully expressive joins, graph queries, faceted search, and many new query operators to build powerful applications on a single data platform
The release of MongoDB Atlas, the fully managed database as a service for MongoDB, available on-demand and with a pay-as-you-go model
"One of the best advantages of the accelerator is the priority support that we get. Early on, we migrated part of our existing MongoDB infrastructure to Atlas for one of our microservices. The Atlas technical services team was incredible in assisting us with migrating this data without downtime, and we were able to demo the new setup in a couple of days."
-Alex Farrill, CTO
"MongoDB Atlas has helped us stay focused on our end goal: making it quick and easy for busy people to manage stock portfolios."
-Tom Goldenberg, CTO
"Unqork needed a database service that had the right mix of security, reliability, flexibility, and speed to fulfill the needs of Fortune 100 insurance companies, while passing all internal IT risk assessments. MongoDB Atlas delivered that to us."
-Gary Hoberman, CEO
"As part of MongoDB’s Startup Accelerator, we’ve been granted Atlas credits to help us ramp up. We chose to use Atlas over mLab for the long term because the pricing is very straightforward. Clear pricing means we can more effectively forecast how much we’ll spend in the future. The credits and pricing clarity are critical for us because burn rate is our second highest priority, after making sure our customers are happy."
