MongoDB turns out to be quite popular in China. Most downloads of the MongoDB database platform have actually been from China in the last couple of years. No wonder that MongoDB is now announcing a partnership with Alibaba Cloud. Customers of Alibaba Cloud will be able to use an authorized, managed MongoDB-as-a-service solution from Alibaba Cloud’s data centers globally.
With this partnership, Alibaba Cloud ensures end-to-end management and support for customers on current and future versions of MongoDB, with the ability to escalate bug fixes and support issues on their behalf. Now, users of Alibaba Cloud’s platform offering will have easy access to the latest MongoDB features and capabilities, backed by comprehensive support from Alibaba Cloud and MongoDB.
“Not only is China one of the largest markets for database software, but there also has been enormous adoption of MongoDB in this market,” said Dev Ittycheria, President & CEO of MongoDB. “In fact, over the past four years the most downloads of MongoDB have been from China, reflecting the global popularity of MongoDB’s next-generation database platform. Now, customers of all sizes have access to the only authorized MongoDB DBaaS offering in mainland China. We’re excited to partner with Alibaba Cloud to enable customers to use MongoDB to transform their businesses.”
MongoDB Database Features
New MongoDB features that are now supported on Alibaba Cloud’s platform offering include multi-document ACID transactions, aggregation pipeline type conversions, non-blocking secondary reads, extensions to change streams and “significantly faster” data migrations. With the release of MongoDB 4.2, Alibaba Cloud customers are able to take advantage of distributed transactions, client-side field-level encryption, wildcard indexes, on-demand materialized views and more.
“MongoDB is a popular database worldwide, and with the latest Community and Enterprise Advanced edition of MongoDB running on our platform, we are able to support a wide range of customer needs from open-source developers to enterprise IT teams of all sizes,” said Feifei Li, Vice President of Alibaba Group, President and Senior Fellow of Database System, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. “Combined with Alibaba Cloud’s native data analytics capabilities, working with partners like MongoDB will empower our customers to generate more business insights from their daily operations.”
