mLab, a fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) for MongoDB, has announced availability in all fourteen Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) regions. As mLab’s worldwide customer growth accelerates, the expansion would allow the company to better serve businesses throughout North America, EMEA, and APAC.
mLab’s fully managed cloud database service would add AWS Cloud’s Frankfurt, Mumbai, and Seoul regions, completing global support for developers who want to focus on building their product – and not on managing their databases.
Due in large part to a continual geographic expansion of data center availability across AWS Cloud, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure, mLab has seen a 77% increase in database volume over the past year. Customers would choose mLab’s cloud database service because of its automated provisioning and scaling of MongoDB databases, backup and recovery, 24/7 monitoring and alerting, web-based management tools, and expert support.
Organizations relying on mLab would always have the capability to control where their data resides. Customers can choose to deploy their cloud databases to the data center nearest to their application and user base, “in order to achieve the lowest latency and best performance possible.” By offering access to every AWS Cloud region available worldwide, mLab customers have the complete menu of geographic options to select from.
“mLab understands that proximity to AWS regions is absolutely critical to applications with latency-sensitive workloads,” said Will Shulman, CEO of mLab. “We’re committed to providing developers with on-demand, scalable, and secure MongoDB databases that are always up and always fast. We’re proud to now offer full AWS availability in addition to our Google and Azure options.”
