MongoDB announced that it is making multi-cloud clusters available on MongoDB Atlas, its DBaaS (database-as-a-service) product. With multi-cloud clusters, Atlas developers will deploy a single cluster across Google Cloud, AWS, and Azure.

MongoDB said that its customers would use multiple clouds without replicating, migrating, or exporting data across each cloud.

Because of the rapid innovations in cloud computing, customers benefit more when given the freedom to choose how they run workloads. This, according to MongoDB CEO Dev Ittycheria.

Innovating to fit customer requirements

With MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud clusters, customers will build, deploy, and run robust and highly available apps across different cloud services. This kind of flexibility is new and makes sure customers can deploy and leverage services from MongoDB’s cloud infrastructure partners.

No one offers this service at the moment, and that makes MongoDB’s innovation unprecedented. It is quite possibly the most advanced cloud database you can get.

MongoDB also claims that the Atlas service is the most prolific DBaaS, with 79 regions worldwide and over nearly 19,000 customers. Atlas is available for the three primary cloud services and accounts for 40% of MongoDB’s revenue.

MongoDB will keep going

In April, MongoDB announced that Atlas had surpassed its annual revenue run rate in the fourth quarter (set at $200 million.) Aside from the ease of use, users will be able to spread their redundancy across three providers, giving them the advantage of withstanding global outages on any one of them.

Companies will not be able to expand their cloud access beyond whatever platform they are bound to. Apps on MongoDB Atlas include some from major consumers’ finance apps and large-scale games.
