I got to sit down with Kelly Stirman of MongoDB.
The new product released by MongoDB is MongoDB Atlas, which is their DB-as-a-Service. There is one customer doing a 20TB deployment coming to atlas in Europe, for more than $1 million a year.
Atlas can work with mixed cluster on-prem, cloud, cross-cloud. Currently, Atlas is AWS-only. In the future, you will be able to move between clouds or cross clouds. Furthermore, you only need an Atlas account, not an AWS account. You will be able to do a hybrid deploy with Cloud Manager and not worry about the underlying hardware. More cloud providers and regions are coming soon, Stirman said.
The other new product is MongoDB Compass, a query tool and more for Windows and Mac.
