mLab announces hosted MongoDB support for all AWS regions

21 Aug 17

mLab has announced availability in all fourteen Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) regions.

mLab is a fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) for MongoDB, an open-source cross-platform database program.

As the company continues to expand internationally, the new AWS regions allow mLab to better serve businesses throughout APAC, North America, and EMEA.

mLab's fully managed cloud database service adds AWS's Frankfurt, Mumbai, and Seoul regions to the list, offering global support for developers who want to focus on building their product rather than managing their databases.

mLab claims it has experienced 77% increase in database volume over the past year which it says is largely due to a continual geographic expansion of data center availability across AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

mLab's cloud database service offers automated provisioning and scaling of MongoDB databases, backup and recovery, 24/7 monitoring and alerting, web-based management tools, and expert support.

"mLab understands that proximity to AWS regions is absolutely critical to applications with latency-sensitive workloads," comments Will Shulman, CEO, mLab.

"We're committed to providing developers with on-demand, scalable, and secure MongoDB databases that are always up and always fast. We're proud to now offer full AWS availability in addition to our Google and Azure options."

With mLab, customers can deploy their cloud databases to the data center nearest to their application and user base, in order to achieve the lowest latency and best performance possible.

By offering access to every AWS region available worldwide, mLab says its customers have the complete menu of geographic options to select from, empowering them to make the best choices for their business' needs.

Headquartered in San Francisco, United States, mLab is a fully managed cloud database service featuring automated provisioning and scaling of MongoDB databases, backup and recovery, 24/7 monitoring and alerting, web-based management tools, and expert support.
