MongoDB Mobile & Stitch Get
has made several key product developments designed to give
developers the ability to work with data anywhere in the world.
These enhancements help businesses unlock new opportunities to more
easily update and modernize their legacy systems and build new
applications faster across cloud and mobile platforms.
Run Anywhere with MongoDB Mobile and Stitch Mobile Sync
The general availability of MongoDB Mobile allows developers to
build faster and more responsive applications that can take
advantage of real-time, automatic syncing between data held on the
mobile device and backend database. Previously, this could only be
done by installing an alternative or feature-limited database within
the mobile application which resulted in cumbersome extra
management, complicated syncing and reduced functionality.
As a mobile database, MongoDB Mobile marks another step forward in
MongoDB’s efforts to give customers the freedom to run anywhere.
Now, users have the full power of MongoDB all the way out to the
edge of their network on IoT assets, as well as iOS and Android
devices. MongoDB provides a single database and query language that
runs wherever you need to work with data – mobile clients, IoT
devices, through to the backend server, dramatically boosting
developer productivity at every layer of the stack.
Applications can also use the MongoDB Stitch SDK to access data,
whether it's held on the mobile client or the backend. This allows
developers to query mobile and IoT data any way they want with local
reads and writes, native JSON storage, indexing, and aggregations.
With Stitch Mobile Sync, now available in beta, users can
automatically synchronize data changes between data held locally and
a backend database – even after the mobile device has been offline.
Streamline Application Development with MongoDB Stitch
In a further push to boost developer velocity, MongoDB’s serverless
platform MongoDB Stitch has now been extended with features to make
Stitch even easier to use, bringing the power of serverless
platforms to more developers and applications.
“Our latest product announcements are united by a common theme –
giving developers a uniform way to work with data wherever they need
to,” said Eliot Horowitz, CTO and co-founder, MongoDB. “Using the
same database on platforms from the edge to the cloud, and a
serverless platform that detects, synchronizes, and responds to data
changes in real time, customers can dramatically accelerate their
ability to create a sustainable competitive advantage. By
modernizing with MongoDB, businesses can build functionality faster,
scale to millions of users wherever they are on the planet, and cut
In addition to Stitch Mobile Sync, key Stitch advancements
Extended integration options, including more than 20 AWS
services, additional authentication providers, multiple Atlas
clusters, and any application code through MongoDB's drivers.
Developers can exploit all of these services without learning new
APIs or adding backend code.
Multi-region support for
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has also been extended to its first
European (EU West 1) and Asia-Pacific region (AP Southeast 2), as
well as US East 1 and US West 2 in North America, with the ability
for applications built on Stitch to be globally distributed across
all of those regions.
Chris Lanaux, chief technology
officer, Acxiom said, "Stitch has helped Acxiom expedite our
delivery times for our omnichannel solutions. We’ve cut the time to
develop an API for our customers in half, and by combining MongoDB
Atlas and Stitch, our teams now have more time to solve business
problems for our clients versus focusing on the management or
operational overhead,” “That combination has become a key part of
our cutting-edge cloud architecture, helping us design, build and
manage omnichannel solutions that power exceptional consumer
MongoDB Atlas Free Tier Now Available on Microsoft Azure
Atlas is now available as a free tier on Microsoft Azure for
developers around the world to start building on MongoDB in an
optimized cloud environment at no cost. Organizations can feel
confident that their managed MongoDB deployments are in close
proximity to their applications, and they are secure, always on, and
fully elastic. MongoDB Atlas launched on Microsoft Azure last year
and is now available in 26 global Microsoft Azure regions.
“Being able to provide a MongoDB Atlas free tier on the Microsoft
Azure platform is a huge positive for our joint customers,” said
Lindsay Zwart, General Manager, Intelligent Cloud, Microsoft US. “We
know that developers love to use Atlas on Azure as the foundation of
their applications, and now there is no barrier to entry for them to
test out the combined power of Microsoft Azure and MongoDB Atlas.”
To better support customers’ mission critical workloads MongoDB is
also announcing an increase to the MongoDB Atlas Service Level
Agreement (“SLA”), for all production clusters, to 99.995%.
