Atlas offers the best NoSQL DB in the 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.

Great solution for NoSQL database

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.

A time and cost saver by the creators of MongoDB. Everything does come at a price though.

Initially, we were using MongoDB from Mlabs for our services until they got bought by MongoDB so we decided to give it a try. We store a good fraction of our data on MongoDB but setting it up for replication and security and ensuring performance requires a lot of resources and it takes time but with Atlas, you could have a cluster running on AWS, Azure or Google Cloud in a couple of minutes, with added layers for security. If you were to set this up on your own, it would take a couple of hours if not a day or two. In an organization like ours where we have a small engineering staff; this has been a time saver.
  • Replica setup, data backup, and clustering.
  • Ensuring availability using multi region instances.
  • It has strong authentication and encryption features that make sure that developers don't get lazy and leave out data in the open by leaving their servers unguarded.
  • It would be nice if MongoDB had a feature where in users could simply use Atlas as a tool to manage data on their cloud instead of hosting data on MongoDBs servers.
  • One of the drawbacks of MongoDB is the cost; Atlas isn't cheap either. Hopefully more competition will bring down the costs over time.
Use Altas if you have a large set of data that needs layers of security and backup. Also, if you have a small team, are not aware of best practices and setting up your own MongoDB server is a challenge.

I can't think of a situation where Atlas isn't suited; the only factor is the cost. However, the free instance is pretty useful and I have used it for my development purposes.

MongoDB Atlas Review

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.
