Database platform provider MongoDB has significantly expanded its current strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). MongoDB and AWS have committed to a broad range of initiatives as part of this six-year agreement, including integrated go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, developer enablement and training through shared developer relations activities.
The extended cooperation also includes technology integrations and commercial incentives to make it easier for joint clients to migrate on-premises workloads to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
This arrangement extends MongoDB’s current, multi-year partnership with AWS, which aims to increase customer adoption of MongoDB Atlas on AWS. Both businesses have pledged to work across sales, customer support, solution architecture, marketing, and other areas to make MongoDB Atlas an excellent experience for developers on AWS internationally in order to improve the customer experience. This includes greater workload migration incentives and improved tools to assist clients in migrating from old on-premises data centers to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
Both firms will also collaborate to provide clients with new combined capabilities in the areas of serverless computing, AWS Graviton processors, and AWS Outposts. Finally, with FedRAMP permission, this relationship would help MongoDB’s development into other AWS Regions throughout the world, as well as the US Public Sector.
“Designed for developers by developers, MongoDB delivers an application data platform that spans multiple geographies, clouds, and deployment types to solve the data challenges of transactional workloads and modern applications,” said Alan Chhabra, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Partners at MongoDB. “The continued growth and reach of our collaboration with AWS means that many more customers across a variety of industries will be able to use MongoDB Atlas to power the next generation of applications.”
AWS: Global Reach, Range of Services
These efforts follow on from previous partnerships announced at AWS re:Invent, such as a pay-as-you-go MongoDB Atlas service on the AWS Marketplace and changes to the AWS Management Console that make finding Atlas simpler for clients. Clients will be able to explore and purchase products more easily through AWS Marketplace thanks to the console.
MongoDB uses AWS’s global reach and range of services to advance the performance of its database service, and enable customers to store, access, and build applications from anywhere in the world. As part of this collaboration, MongoDB leverages the AWS Marketplace to enable customers to run MongoDB Atlas on AWS and build applications that are highly available, performant at global scale, highly secure, and compliant with privacy standards. MongoDB on AWS works with a wide range of AWS services to enable customers to analyze data with the broadest set of analytical approaches and integrate advanced services in machine learning and Internet of Things.
“MongoDB has been both a customer and trusted AWS Partner for years, using AWS’s broad and deep set of functionalities, proven operational performance, and security to help organizations move their software and data into the cloud faster with a seamless user experience. Running MongoDB Atlas on AWS gives customers a richer application developer experience and helps customers make better use of their data,” said Ruba Borno, Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at Amazon Web Services. “MongoDB shares a mindset of driving innovation, improving reliability, and ensuring we support customers’ efforts to become more data-driven organizations in the cloud, whether they’re startups or enterprises, working in the private or public sector.”
