New MongoDB Service On Microsoft Azure

The latest addition to the Microsoft Azure cloud offerings is a new manifestation of the NoSQL database MongoDB service.

The Microsoft Azure Store now offers a fully managed, highly available, MongoDB-as-a-Service add-on.

It runs MongoDB Enterprise edition and comes with support from MongoDB Inc. The company provides replication, monitoring and the MongoDB Management Service, which provides point-in-time recovery of deployments.

Announced at the database vendor's MongoDB World conference, the offering is a team effort with Microsoft, its Microsoft Open Technologies subsidiary and MongoLab, which provides the cloud service version of the popular database.

Microsoft Open Technologies' Brian Benz, blogging from the conference site, said the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offering is the only one available directly from MongoDB Inc. and the only one backed up by MMS.

MongoDB instances have been available in Azure for a while now, but the new service add-on offers new support and development options.

"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," said Microsoft Open Technologies exec Gianugo Rabellino in a statement. "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."
