MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced a significant expansion of a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS).
Under this six-year agreement, MongoDB and AWS have committed to a broad range of initiatives to make it easier for joint customers to advance their cloud adoption journey, including integrated go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, developer enablement and training through shared developer relations activities, and both technology integrations and commercial incentives to streamline the migration of on-premises workloads to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
This agreement builds on the current multi-year relationship between MongoDB and AWS aimed at driving customer adoption of MongoDB Atlas on AWS. In an effort to further improve the customer experience, both companies have agreed to collaborate together across sales, customer support, solution architecture, marketing, and other areas to make MongoDB Atlas an exceptional experience for developers on AWS globally.
This includes increased workload migration incentives and enhanced tools to help customers move from legacy technologies in on-premises data centers to MongoDB Atlas on AWS. Both companies will also work together to offer new joint capabilities for customers in the areas of serverless, AWS Graviton processors, and AWS Outposts. Finally, this partnership will support MongoDB’s expansion into further AWS Regions across the globe and US Public Sector with FedRAMP authorisation.
These efforts come on the heels of the recent collaborations announced at AWS re:Invent, including a pay-as-you-go MongoDB Atlas offering on the AWS Marketplace and updates to the AWS Management Console that make it easier for customers to find Atlas. The console will give customers a simpler discovery and purchase experience through AWS Marketplace.
“Several years ago, we embarked on a strategic initiative to migrate the entire Shutterfly ecommerce platform to the public cloud because we realized the sheer complexity combined with the overall cost of managing our own infrastructure took away from our ability to innovate,” said Moudy Elbayadi, Chief Technology Officer, Shutterfly. “By leveraging MongoDB Atlas on AWS, our platform resiliency has increased along with the overall performance of our applications allowing our platform to scale during our seasonal peaks.
Additionally, being able to offload the undifferentiated day-to-day work associated with managing our own databases allows our talented team to focus on building personalised experiences that delight our customers.”
MongoDB uses AWS’s global reach and range of services to advance the performance of its database service, and enable customers to store, access, and build applications from anywhere in the world. As part of this collaboration, MongoDB leverages the AWS Marketplace to enable customers to run MongoDB Atlas on AWS and build applications that are highly available, performant at global scale, highly secure, and compliant with privacy standards. MongoDB on AWS works with a wide range of AWS services to enable customers to analyze data with the broadest set of analytical approaches and integrate advanced services in machine learning and Internet of Things.
“Designed for developers by developers, MongoDB delivers an application data platform that spans multiple geographies, clouds, and deployment types to solve the data challenges of transactional workloads and modern applications,” said Alan Chhabra, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Partners, MongoDB. “The continued growth and reach of our collaboration with AWS means that many more customers across a variety of industries will be able to use MongoDB Atlas to power the next generation of applications.”
“MongoDB has been both a customer and trusted AWS Partner for years, using AWS’s broad and deep set of functionalities, proven operational performance, and security to help organizations move their software and data into the cloud faster with a seamless user experience. Running MongoDB Atlas on AWS gives customers a richer application developer experience and helps customers make better use of their data,” said Ruba Borno, Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at Amazon Web Services. “MongoDB shares a mindset of driving innovation, improving reliability, and ensuring we support customers’ efforts to become more data-driven organisations in the cloud, whether they’re startups or enterprises, working in the private or public sector.”
