mLab Announces Hosted MongoDB Support Across All AWS Regions

Already the most popular way to run MongoDB in the cloud, mLab expands Amazon Web Services availability in response to global customer growth

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 15, 2017) - mLab, the fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) for MongoDB, today announced availability in all fourteen Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) regions. As mLab's worldwide customer growth accelerates, the expansion allows the company to better serve businesses throughout North America, EMEA, and APAC.

mLab's fully managed cloud database service adds AWS's Frankfurt, Mumbai, and Seoul regions, completing global support for developers who want to focus on building their product -- and not on managing their databases. Due in large part to a continual geographic expansion of data center availability across AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure, mLab has seen a 77% increase in database volume over the past year. Customers choose mLab's cloud database service because of its automated provisioning and scaling of MongoDB databases, backup and recovery, 24/7 monitoring and alerting, web-based management tools, and expert support.

Organizations relying on mLab always have the capability to control where their data resides. Customers can choose to 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 customers have the complete menu of geographic options to select from, empowering them to make the best choices for their business' needs.

"mLab understands that proximity to AWS regions is absolutely critical to applications with latency-sensitive workloads," said 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."
