Google Cloud and database company MongoDB are expanding their collaboration by making MongoDB’s managed database service available on the Google Cloud Platform. That’s what Silicon Angle writes.

MongoDB Atlas is a fully managed cloud version of the company’s popular NoSQL database, launched in 2016. The service removes a lot of the heavy work involved in setting up and running a database. The service is designed for companies that want the database to do what it needs to do. Atlas therefore handles all the complexity associated with deploying, managing and curing database deployments.

For example, the service offers the ability to quickly allocate cloud resources for deployment using a streamlined “one-click provisioning” mechanism. The database can then set itself up automatically on the basis of predefined rules. Users can customize almost anything, including partition settings or the number of backups.

Google Cloud

By integrating Atlas with Google Cloud, users get benefits as a single bill, where the cost of the database comes into an account along with the other Google services someone is using. The service also integrates with Google’s Cloud Key Management Service, which allows users to protect the information contained in the database. Another advantage is the scale. As MongoDB Atlas is available in twenty cloud regions, the latency for both reading and writing to the database is lower.

The new integrated version of MongoDB Atlas has already been used as a beta in the cloud by various companies, Google said. This includes Auto Trader U.K., a website that buys and sells used cars. The company uses the database to keep its offered cars up to date in real-time.

MongoDB Atlas is now available to all users in the Google Cloud Marketplace.
