MongoDB Atlas Launches on AWS
December 18, 2017
Atlas launched in the summer of 2016 as a fully-managed cloud service
for MongoDB on AWS. It is now available across 14 AWS regions and has
thousands of customers that depend on MongoDB Atlas. The new
availability of MongoDB Atlas on AWS Marketplace will make it easier for
established Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers to buy and consume
MongoDB Atlas. The cost of MongoDB Atlas will be integrated into a
customer's AWS bill, resulting in a single, simple payment.
"AWS nailed the importance of making it easy to consume and pay for
cloud services, which are driving transformative innovations across many
organizations," said Sahir Azam, Vice President of Cloud, MongoDB. "Our
latest go-to-market partnership with AWS will help bring MongoDB Atlas
to the massive ecosystem of AWS marketplace customers."
"Since MongoDB Atlas first launched on AWS, it has become a popular way
for customers to run one of the leading NoSQL databases," said Barry
Russell, General Manager of Worldwide Business Development, AWS
Marketplace and Service Catalog, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Our
customers want easy-to-deploy SaaS solutions and the availability of
MongoDB's solution on AWS Marketplace allows the more than 160,000
active customers using software from AWS Marketplace to drive innovation
and improve performance with integrated billing directly on AWS
Cross-Region Replication, Performance Advisor and Storage Auto-Scaling
With the announcement of MongoDB 3.6 in November, the newest version of
the most popular database for modern applications, MongoDB unveiled
cross-region replication for MongoDB Atlas. This allows customers to
easily build globally-distributed applications without the hassle of
managing complex, multi-datacenter configurations. Using cross-region
replication, customers can maintain continuous availability in the
unlikely event of a cloud region outage and ensure a great customer
experience by locating data close to users for fast, responsive access.
Customers like Ticketek, the largest ticketing retailer in Australia and
New Zealand, have already praised the value of this innovation.
"Cross-region replication will be instrumental as we expand our presence
into new regions," said Matt Cudworth, CTO, Ticketek, "MongoDB Atlas's
support for turnkey global distribution of our databases is
game-changing for Ticketek and allows us to provide the best experience
for customers, anywhere."
MongoDB Atlas includes deep monitoring and alerting capabilities that
give teams complete visibility into the performance of their managed
databases, allowing them to anticipate issues and proactively take the
necessary steps to ensure an optimal experience for end customers.
Today, MongoDB is also announcing new features for MongoDB Atlas that
make it easier to efficiently optimize deployments, reduce costs and
index suggestions with the new Performance Advisor give customers a
quick and simple way to see how to improve query performance without
adding additional infrastructure resources. The Performance Advisor
displays slow-running queries and automatically generates index
suggestions to help improve their performance. This ensures that teams
are best utilizing the resources they've provisioned, helping drive
better performance with no additional cost.
•Storage auto-scaling makes MongoDB management and capacity planning
even easier. Enabled by default for all dedicated clusters, this new
feature automatically provisions additional storage capacity when
customers reach preset utilization thresholds. Storage auto-scaling
occurs in the background, without causing any impact to database or
