MongoDB is one of the most popular databases, and it’s ideal for apps that evolve rapidly and need to handle huge volumes of data and traffic. It offers advantages like flexible document schemas, code-native data access, change-friendly design, and easy horizontal scale-out.
However, building and maintaining MongoDB clusters from the ground up can be a huge undertaking. Developers often complain that they have to spend their valuable time and resources on database management. Well, the DigitalOcean team has been listening and has some great news: accessing and managing MongoDB on DigitalOcean just got a lot simpler!
DigitalOcean announced that Managed MongoDB is now in General Availability. Managed MongoDB is a fully managed, database as a service (DBaaS) offering from DigitalOcean, built in partnership with and certified by MongoDB Inc. It provides you all the technical capabilities that make MongoDB so beloved in the developer community.
Managed MongoDB simplifies the MongoDB administration. Developers of all skill levels, even those who do not have prior experience in databases, can spin up MongoDB clusters in just a few minutes. DigitalOcean will handle the provisioning, managing, scaling, updates, backups, and security of your MongoDB clusters, allowing you to offload the complex, time-consuming –yet critical – database administration tasks to the DigitalOcean team. This empowers you to focus on what matters: building awesome apps.
What does this mean for me an you? Now I can offer DigitalOcean infrastructure to customers that don’t want to go with AWS.
