MongoDB launches managed service on Microsoft Azure

MongoDB says the offering allows the company to bring support and scalability of its NoSQL database to developers in the Azure cloud.

Open-source NoSQL vendor MongoDB launched Tuesday a fully-managed service on Microsoft's cloud platform Azure.

MongoDB has worked with Microsoft Open Technologies and Microsoft Azure for several years, but MongoDB's Vijay Vijayasankar said the offering now allows the company to bring its same level of support and scalability to developers in the Azure cloud.

MongoDB-as-a-service is available as an add-on in the Azure Store. It combines technologies from MongoDB and MongoLab, runing MongoDB Enterprise and offering replication, monitoring and support from MongoDB. The service is backed up by MongoDB Management Service (MMS), allowing for point-in-time recovery of MongoDB deployments.

Gianugo Rabellino, senior director of open source communities at Microsoft Open Technologies, said in a statement:

This is a significant milestone in a multi-year relationship between Microsoft Open Technologies, Microsoft Azure and MongoDB to provide developers with additional choices for a database designed for modern applications. A scalable, resilient and supported MongoDB is now just a few clicks away from our Azure customers, enabling new and exciting scenarios for cloud developers.
