Pay-as-you-go MongoDB Atlas now available on Google Cloud
The new version of its cloud database is meant to give developers a more simplified subscription experience, and therefore a more simpler choice by which they can adopt MongoDB on Google LLC’s cloud infrastructure platform.
The new offering simplifies adoption because customers will need to pay only for the resources they actually use, with no upfront commitments. Users can then scale the service as their needs demand. According to MongoDB, it’s a model that better aligns with how companies are building modern applications, especially startups.
Led by its Chief Executive Officer Dev Ittycheria (pictured), MongoDB is the company behind the popular open-source document-oriented MongoDB database. It’s said to be one of the most powerful databases of its kind and is a popular choice for data-hungry applications. MongoDB offers advantages over traditional databases, such as its ease of use and its versatility, because it can store data in many different formats.
MongoDB Atlas is a cloud-hosted version of that database. It can be hosted on Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and other public cloud platforms and has recently become a key growth driver for the company. During its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings call last week, MongoDB said revenue from Atlas grew by an impressive 85% from a year ago, surpassing $1 billion in annualized revenue for the first time. The company said its partnerships with Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services Inc. were one of the main factors behind that growth.
One of the main benefits of running MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud is the tight integration with services, meaning customers can analyze data with the broadest set of analytical approaches and integrate advanced services into applications powered by the database. As an example, MongoDB Atlas integrates with Google services such as BigQuery, Apigee, TensorFlow, Cloud Run and App Engine.
Google Cloud also recently made it easier for developers to migrate existing workloads to MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud with services such as migVisor by EPAM Systems, Inc. and Google Cloud StratoZone. Using the latter tool, customers can automatically discover existing infrastructure from any environment, analyze the cost benefits of moving MongoDB to Google Cloud, then plan the migration with migVisor, Google said.
Alan Chhabra, MongoDB’s executive vice president of worldwide partners, said his company and Google Cloud have a longstanding partnership that’s focused on driving customer success across multiple industries.
“Developers benefit by having MongoDB Atlas now featured in the database section of Google Cloud’s console, increasing the visibility and velocity of Atlas with a wider group of users,” Chhabra said, “Together, Google Cloud and MongoDB will continue to work with organizations looking to streamline cloud migrations and modernize application development in order to provide their customers with a first class experience.”
Last December, MongoDB announced a similar pay-as-you-go offering for MongoDB Atlas on AWS, along with an enhanced console integration that makes it easier to discover the service within the AWS Console.
