Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility)

Fast, scalable, highly available MongoDB-compatible database service

Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads.

Amazon DocumentDB is designed from the ground-up to give you the performance, scalability, and availability you need when operating mission-critical MongoDB workloads at scale. Amazon DocumentDB implements the Apache 2.0 open source MongoDB 3.6 API by emulating the responses that a MongoDB client expects from a MongoDB server, allowing you to use your existing MongoDB drivers and tools with Amazon DocumentDB. In Amazon DocumentDB, the storage and compute are decoupled, allowing each to scale independently, and you can increase the read capacity to millions of requests per second by adding up to 15 low latency read replicas in minutes, regardless of the size of your data. Amazon DocumentDB is designed for 99.99% availability and replicates six copies of your data across three AWS Availability Zones (AZs). You can use AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) for free (for six months) to easily migrate their on-premises or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) MongoDB databases to Amazon DocumentDB with virtually no downtime.

Benefits

MongoDB-compatible

Amazon DocumentDB implements the Apache 2.0 open source MongoDB 3.6 API by emulating the responses that a MongoDB client expects from a MongoDB server, allowing you to use your existing MongoDB drivers and tools with Amazon DocumentDB. Updating the application is as easy as changing the database endpoint to the new Amazon DocumentDB cluster. Learn more about supported MongoDB APIs.

Highly available

Amazon DocumentDB is designed for 99.99% availability and replicates six copies of your data across three AWS Availability Zones (AZs). Amazon DocumentDB continually monitors database instance health and automatically fails over to a read replica in the event of a failure–typically in less than 30 seconds.

Performance at scale

Amazon DocumentDB achieves twice the throughput of currently available MongoDB managed services. Amazon DocumentDB’s architecture separates storage and compute, allowing each to scale independently, so that you can easily scale read capacity to millions of requests per second by adding up to 15 low latency read replicas across three Availability Zones in minutes, regardless of data size. Amazon DocumentDB uses a distributed, fault-tolerant, self-healing storage system that auto-scales up to 64 TB per database cluster.

Highly secure

Amazon DocumentDB provides multiple levels of security for your database, including network isolation using Amazon VPC, encryption at rest using keys you create and control through AWS Key Management Service (KMS), database auditing, and encryption-in-transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS). Amazon DocumentDB encrypts the data in automated backups, snapshots, and replicas in the same cluster.

Fully managed

With Amazon DocumentDB, you don’t need to worry about database management tasks, such as hardware provisioning, patching, setup, configuration, backups, or scaling. Amazon DocumentDB automatically and continuously monitors and backs up your database to Amazon S3, enabling point-in-time recovery (up to the second for the last 35 days).

Use cases

Migrate your on-premises MongoDB workloads to the cloud

Self-managing MongoDB databases is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. With Amazon DocumentDB, you can set up, secure, and scale MongoDB-compatible databases in the cloud without worrying about manually setting up and securing database clusters, running cluster management software, configuring backups, and monitoring production workloads.

Profile management

User profile management enables online transactions, user preferences, and user authentication. With the growth in users, increasingly complex user profile data, and growing user experience expectations, the demand for scalability, data flexibility, and performance too has grown. With Amazon DocumentDB’s document data model, you can manage profiles & preferences of millions of users & scale to process millions of user requests per second with millisecond latency.
