MongoDB Adds Free Tier and Live Migration to Database SaaS Platform

MongoDB has announced a new free tier for its database as a service solution MongoDB Atlas. The vendor is also releasing a utility that will support the live migration of data from any location, either on-premise or in the cloud, to Atlas.

Eliot Horowitzk, CTO and Co-Founder of MongoDB explains: “Since we first introduced MongoDB to the community in 2009, we have been laser-focused on one thing — building a technology that gets out of the way of developers and makes them more productive. Now, with these updates to Atlas, we’re tearing down more of the barriers that stand between developers and their giant ideas.”

Atlas now offers a free cluster with 512 MB of storage. As with all dedicated Atlas clusters, the nodes in a free tier deployment are distributed to ensure high availability. Users will also have their data secured by default with authorization via SCRAM-SHA-1, TLS/SSL encryption for data traveling over networks, and encrypted storage volumes for data at rest.

For organizations already utlizing this solution, the new MongoMirror migration utility enables them to pull data from their pre-existing deployments and push it into Atlas for a simplified live migration process. The MongoMirror migration utility will work with any pre-existing MongoDB replica set running 3.0 or higher. A hosted version of this live migration tool will soon be available in Atlas.
