MongoDB, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced it was recognized as a Leader by Forrester Research in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Database-As-A-Service, Q2 2019. Out of the 12 vendors evaluated, MongoDB scored five out of five points in 12 key criteria including high availability, disaster recovery, multimodel support, automation, user access and roadmap.
According to the research, “MongoDB is one of the most popular NoSQL databases supporting modern business applications. MongoDB Atlas, its cloud-hosted database service which was introduced in 2016, has done extremely well, gaining strong traction across various mid-sized and large enterprises. MongoDB Atlas helps automate provisioning, setup, availability, backups, and upgrades. MongoDB Atlas runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure, offering customers choices. Customer references like its ease of use, performance, scale, and good tools to support various business applications.”
“We believe the placement of MongoDB Atlas as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Database-As-A-Service, Q2 2019 is a strong validation of the strength of our global cloud database and the sophistication of our customers,” said Sahir Azam, SVP, Cloud Products and GTM. “Innovative cloud-native startups as well as established, regulated enterprises are adopting the cloud at breakneck speed and we believe that only MongoDB Atlas can provide the flexibility and scale they need to do it efficiently.”
According to the report, “Forrester Analytics survey data shows that 33% of global infrastructure business decision makers already support a DBaaS deployment in production, and this will likely double over the next three to four years. In addition, 61% of global data and analytics technology decision makers plan to increase their investment in DBaaS in the coming year by at least 5%, and 22% of them plan to increase it by more than 10% compared to the previous year. The types of use cases that organizations support have grown significantly, beyond simple test, development, and backups to more sophisticated and complex customer experience, internet-of-things (IoT), mobile, and big data applications.”
This is consistent with the growth MongoDB has seen in its customer base, which has expanded to more than 13,000 customers in over 100 countries, many of whom are using MongoDB for business-critical workloads and for mobile, IoT and AI/ML use cases.
