DigitalOcean and MongoDB Partner to Give Developers Flexibility to Focus on Apps

DigitalOcean, offering the cloud for developers, startups and SMBs, is partnering with MongoDB to offer Managed MongoDB, a new, fully-managed database as a service (DBaaS).

“We are very excited, MongoDB is a database loved by modern developers for building scalable, robust, infrastructures for data applications,” said Raman Sharma, VP product marketing, DigitalOcean. “Now developers can focus entirely on developing apps.”

Managed MongoDB helps developers of all skill levels easily spin up MongoDB clusters on DigitalOcean.  It also simplifies database administration by seamlessly managing, scaling, and securing clusters so developers can spend more time building their apps and growing their businesses.

Expanding on DigitalOcean’s Managed Databases portfolio, Managed MongoDB automates the experience of managing databases in the cloud.

Customers get access to the latest releases of the MongoDB document database and benefit from key features like built-in security and point-in-time recovery, which allows customers to restore to any point within a seven day backup history window.

The solution also provides high availability with automated failovers and gives users the ability to scale up on demand to handle traffic spikes.

Additionally, Managed MongoDB follows DigitalOcean’s simple, predictable pricing model to help developers, startups and SMBs confidently scale their production applications. 

Managed MongoDB helps simplify the end-to-end management of MongoDB, the world’s most popular database.

As a result, customers can get up and running quickly without having to worry about the set up or administration of their database.

The company is actively working to add additional cloud capabilities, robust features, and integration for more database engines, according to Sharma. Customer feedback is driving partnerships and integrations.

“MongoDB is something a lot of developers are already using and if we see similar demand for another database engine we’ll continue to invest in those areas,” Sharma said.

The company already works with Redis and PostgreSQL, among others.

“As a cloud provider we are very intensely focused on the needs of startups and small/medium businesses,” Sharma said. “We feel like these are the people that don’t have all the resources to do complex infrastructure management. These are the people in the process of creating their businesses. We want to make sure they can spend as much time as possible on their apps and their business. We try to take all the complexity out of the process and our products are simple and delight developers.”
