Strategic collaboration agreement to focus on accelerating customer workload migrations to the cloud

MongoDB and Amazon Web Services (AWS) this week announced a significant expansion of their multi-year strategic collaboration agreement (SCA). Under this six-year agreement, MongoDB and AWS have committed to a broad range of initiatives to make it easier for joint customers to advance their cloud adoption journey, including integrated go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, developer enablement and training through shared developer relations activities, and both technology integrations and commercial incentives to streamline the migration of on-premises workloads to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.

This agreement builds on the current multi-year relationship between MongoDB and AWS aimed at driving customer adoption of MongoDB Atlas on AWS. In an effort to further improve the customer experience, both companies have agreed to collaborate together across sales, customer support, solution architecture, marketing, and other areas to make MongoDB Atlas an exceptional experience for developers on AWS globally. This includes increased workload migration incentives and enhanced tools to help customers move from legacy technologies in on-premises data centers to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
