MongoDB’s Partner and Product Expansion

MongoDB is focusing on expanding its market position through product and partner ecosystem enhancement. Within product innovation, it recently enhanced the capabilities of MongoDB data platform by adding features such as auto-scaling.

Auto scaling brings fully automated capacity management to customers’ managed MongoDB databases. The feature will allow Atlas to autonomously adjust instance sizes, both up or down as needed, by using predictive modeling and learnings developed from managing other MongoDB deployments. Atlas will examine two key resource utilization metrics—CPU and memory— every five minutes and determine whether it needs to scale based on the average utilization of each metric over the past hour. Before downscaling, Atlas will track the trend of the metrics for the past 72 hours. MongoDB will continue to enhance this feature through future algorithm enhancements to allow the platform to be more responsive to changes in workload. Currently the feature is in the open beta stage.
