All of the company's data collections have been adequately managed from MongoDB Atlas, which leaves aside the execution of SQL formats that most database services such as Microsoft Access work with, to focus on the management of more modern data documents. MongoDB Atlas is basically a universal storage system for non-conventional databases.
  • The performance level of the MongoDB Atlas cluster is well above that of any other service of this type, allowing us to create specialized reads where data mapping is always our priority.
  • It shows a complete history of all data collections that have been worked with over the time of using the platform, since MongoDB Atlas backs up all database information that is uploaded to it and is not automatically deleted after a certain period of time.
  • It is possible to access JSON documents from anywhere without the need to use a specialized language to access the information.
  • Improving the quality of our database infrastructure was only possible thanks to the implementation of the ideas of the MongoDB atlas development team, which provided us with accurate information about our plans with the platform, and which we were able to apply to improve our activities with the use of the service.
  • We had previously used MongoDB to work with databases without SQL, but obtaining Atlas and its excellent data mobilization capacity in general was what made us improve our information traffic capabilities in the cloud, and for this reason we are satisfied. It is an easy to use software once it has been possible to get used to its backup mechanics.
  • As it does not have a design specifically oriented to responsive management, it is difficult to work with parameters such as search parameters if you are checking the database from a cell phone, having to limit yourself to only one.
  • When working with MongoDB Atlas clusters, it is not possible to download a direct copy of all the information stored in them.
  • In case of needing to work with collections with high amounts of entries (generally more than 150) it is necessary to enter the Mongo Shell platform to be able to visualize the complete information.
It is suitable for database administrative operations that require a high level of speed, since by not working with conventional SQL it is possible to create data records faster, and therefore better manage work time. It is not necessary to create backend connections for the databases, since these backends of different web pages and applications automatically centralize the development data in a single place, which is useful when managing many services in parallel. It is much easier and faster to get a specific document based on special characteristics of your data, through the filtering system of MongoDB Atlas, since it manages large numbers of servers, and has a high capacity of data mimicry. The cluster shows a history of all the operations that have been performed during the day, so that it is easy to make job regressions in case you need to identify an error that occurred at some point during the day. All data from the MongoDB web application is automatically stored in the Atlas cloud.

MongoDB is a standard NoSQL database within our enterprise. We are considering applications for cloud dbs and MongoDB Atlas is a choice for NoSQL cloud deployments or DBaaS. I am working on a project where we are looking at modernizing our platform and have defined a future state architecture. MongoDB Atlas can be used for storing some non-relational attributes that can be stored in document form where the schemas may vary from record to record. And MongoDB Atlas is very quick to provision. Getting servers provision within our organization can be very slow given the SLAs some teams have. Atlas gets us prototyping and coding almost immediately.
  • DB Provisioning.
  • DB Management.
  • Live Migration Service.
Atlas is a NoSQL DB so the use cases being solved need to be appropriate for NoSQL. It's really hard to think of what you can't do with Atlas. Atlas is great for building a data lake. We have prototyped an application where various json files come in and we load them into Atlas for processing downstream. I would say if you're building a ledger, put that into SQL, but Atlas is definitely perfect for those NoSQL scenarios. We are also considering using Atlas for indicative and demographic information but not for financial information because the financial information fits better into our SQL deployment.
We've never had any issues with MongoDB Atlas and when we've had questions, MongoDB has a quick turnaround on getting them answered. I would give them 5 stars or 10/10. When you don't have problems, that's the best. But also getting quick answers to tech questions is great. Also I would like to mention that MongoDB has an online learning center offering a number of totally free classes. These free classes help educate us so that we are not constantly calling on Tech Support.

Our department is using the MongoDB Atlas cluster we set up on our own servers. It has reached to a point that it becomes hard to manage and to scale. MongoDB Atlas came to our site with the ability to scale and free of management, which saves a lot of effort for us.
  • No infrastructure on our side. Free of management.
  • Easy to scale up and down.
  • More granular billing.
  • More specific alerting system.
I would recommend MongoDB Atlas to every company who have a significant need in the NoSQL database and do not want to manage their infrastructure. Using MongoDB Atlas can significantly reduce your management time and cost, which saves valuable resources for other tasks. It also suits a smaller company as MongoDB Atlas scales up and down very quickly.
We love MongoDB support and have great relationship with them. When we decided to go with MongoDB Atlas, they sent a team of 5 to our company to discuss the process of setting up a Mongo cluster and walked us through. when we have questions, we create a ticket and they will respond very quickly.

MongoDB Atlas provides a simple means of deploying and managing MongoDB deployments in a variety of cloud services (AWS, Google, and Azure). MongoDB Atlas includes a generous free tier for test purposes (512MB instances with low compute resources). Atlas provides a simple means of managing what can be difficult-to-deploy-and-manage software when working directly on top of a PaaS vendor like AWS.
  • Generous free and trial plan for evaluation or test purposes.
  • New versions of MongoDB are able to be deployed with Atlas as soon as they're released—deploying recent versions to other services can be difficult or risky.
  • As the key supporters of the open source MongoDB project, the service runs in a highly optimized and performant manner, making it much easier than having to do the work internally.
  • As an independent entity, MongoDB Atlas is not included in existing subscriptions from AWS or Azure, requiring an additional support plan and reliance on a third party.
MongoDB Atlas is the clear number one choice when deploying the NoSQL MongoDB engine to a PaaS vendor, and when the ability to use an additional cloud vendor is a possibility. By having the same people designing and working on the MongoDB engine perform the hosting work, Atlas shines as an incredibly performant and scalable cloud-based NoSQL solution.
