By automating numerous database management tasks, MongoDB Atlas helps developers build apps faster with less human error.
About Microsoft Azure SQL Database
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing service designed for building, testing, launching, and managing applications and services via Microsoft-managed data centers. Through its platform-as-a-service (PaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (Iaas) offerings, Microsoft Azure integrates with a wide range of programming languages and tools. In addition to working with Microsoft's proprietary software and systems, Azure is compatible with third-party solutions, including Linux. As an extremely popular cloud services platform, many businesses and enterprises have used Microsoft Azure to migrate their computer systems to the cloud and eliminate the costs and staff requirements needed to maintain physical onsite servers.
MongoDB Atlas's End Points
MongoDB Atlas Automated Features
The automated security features included in MongoDB Atlas let you monitor who has access to your data while securing your information against unwanted intrusions. Also, due to the platform's automation of mundane operational tasks — like provisioning and configuration, patching and upgrades, monitoring and alerts, advanced security automation, and disaster recovery — you don't have to be a data science expert to set up and run your databases.
MongoDB Advanced Security Automation
MongoDB Atlas provides a variety of database security layers including advanced access control, IP whitelists, in-flight data encryption through TLS/SSL, optional encryption of your file system, and network isolation through Amazon VPCs and VPC Peering.
MongoDB Atlas Built-In Replication
MongoDB Atlas offers multiple servers to provide 'always-on' availability. Even if your primary master goes down, multiple backups ensure that your system is always up and running.
MongoDB Atlas Backups and Time-Machine Recovery
The advanced backup and recovery features for MongoDB Atlas guard against data corruption. Whether the threat is from hackers or a team member's innocent mistake, you can rest easy knowing that, after a catastrophic, event you'll have a backup copy to recover your system from a specific time in the past.
MongoDB Atlas Detailed Statistics and Monitoring
MongoDB Atlas provides detailed information and statistics about your database systems. By organizing this information in numerous ways, the platform helps you understand when important changes or upgrades to your system may be necessary. Moreover, if it's time to make changes, you can provision new server instances in a flash.
MongoDB Atlas Automated Patches and Upgrades
Whether it's a new technology upgrade to improve database efficiency or a security patch to protect against a new security threat, MongoDB Atlas automatically upgrades or lets you upgrade with a single click, so you can take advantage of features as soon as they're available. Upgrades happen in a matter of minutes without any downtime required.
MongoDB Atlas Customizable Database Tools
MongoDB Atlas includes a suite of tools that allow you to select your regions, billing options, and more — allowing you to customize server instances to your desired specifications.
MongoDB Atlas Scalability
MongoDB Atlas scales up and down — or scales out horizontally through automatic sharding — according to the needs of your company with zero application downtime. This allows you to grow beyond the limitations of one server without making your application too complex. Moreover, the platform's automatic balancing keeps information equally distributed across multiple replica sets as your data volumes grow, or as your cluster increases or decreases.
