MongoDB (NASDAQ: MDB), a general-purpose database platform, has announced the general availability of multi-cloud clusters for its global cloud database, MongoDB Atlas. Users can now deploy a fully managed, distributed database across AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure simultaneously.
MongoDB Atlas users can deploy applications across multiple cloud providers without the added operational complexity of managing data replication and migration across clouds.
MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud clusters enables organizations to extend the geographic reach of their applications by allowing them to replicate data across all three major cloud providers to any of the currently 79 supported cloud regions worldwide. Multi-cloud clusters would also give organizations the flexibility to “seamlessly” migrate their data from one cloud provider to another. It would allow them to meet the changing needs of their application or business requirements.
MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud clusters lets developers leverage “the best offerings” from each cloud provider, including services such as AI, analytics, and serverless development products. For example, an organization running its applications on one cloud provider would be able to “easily” use another cloud provider’s AI and machine learning services on its operational data without dealing with the complexity of the movement of data. Additionally, multi-cloud clusters would enable cross-cloud resiliency, which protects against region-wide incidents isolated to a single cloud platform. In such a situation, MongoDB Atlas can automatically fail over to another cloud serving the same geographic area, preserving “low latency” access to data and compliance with data residency requirements.
Multiple Public Cloud Platforms
“Given the rapid innovations in cloud computing, customers are best served when they are given the freedom to choose how and where they run their workloads in the cloud,” said Dev Ittycheria, President & CEO of MongoDB. “With the availability of MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud clusters, customers can build, deploy and run powerful, highly available applications across different cloud providers, giving them unprecedented flexibility on where they can deploy applications, and what services they can leverage from our cloud infrastructure partners. No one else offers this today, making MongoDB Atlas the most advanced cloud database available in the market.”
MongoDB Atlas is now available in 79 regions worldwide across AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Over 18,800 customers use MongoDB Atlas.
“A number of enterprises have expressed the desire to execute applications that share data on multiple public cloud platforms, but this has proven operationally difficult and somewhat expensive,” said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management Software at IDC. “MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud clusters enables users to maintain shared data collections across public clouds, without the need for replication or exportation, giving customers an impressive degree of flexibility and it should be well received in the market.”
