MongoDB’s document-oriented model strikes a chord with developers

Posted on

As organizations work to manage more data each day, choosing the right schema for applications is critical.

MongoDB Inc.’s document database uses a flexible schema approach, which is popular with development teams using agile methodologies, according to Ian Massingham (pictured), vice president of developer relations and community at MongoDB.

With a release history of more than 13 years and a variety of platform and operating system support, the company continues to evolve. In fact, it’s doubling down on intrinsic platform features that developers find invaluable.

“I think the main one is the document-orientated model that we use, which is just a natural way for developers to work with data,” said Ian Massingham (pictured), vice president of developer relations and community at MongoDB. “And also we’ve invested in creating 16 first-party drivers that allow developers using various different programming languages, whether that’s JavaScript, Python or Rust, to integrate MongoDB natively and idiomatically with their software.”

Massingham spoke with industry analyst John Furrier during the recent AWS Summit San Francisco event, an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. The pair discussed the positioning of MongoDB and other database solutions as the enterprise enters a cloud-focused computing future. (* Disclosure below.)

The company’s go-to-market strategy with AWS

While MongoDB’s several moving parts are built atop many different cloud providers, Amazon Web Services Inc. is the company’s largest partner and the framework upon which its Atlas platform functions.

Coming off an 85% growth year (with Atlas), the company recently announced a new strategic partnership with AWS for more extensive collaborations, according to Massingham. A large part of that collaboration is in integration points and market coverage. 

“The first thing is there’s a huge amount of technical integration between MongoDB and AWS services,” Massingham explained. “And that’s the basis for many of our customers choosing to run MongoDB on AWS. We’re also active in 23 AWS regions around the world.”

Other technical integration points, as planned by both companies, include cryptographic protection of data within MongoDB leveraging AWS’ cryptographic services. Several use cases abound for developers with these integration, a key one of them being the ability to build serverless applications using Lambda and MongoDB Atlas serverless model, according to Massingham.
