MongoDB Atlas on AWS

Global cloud document database service

This Partner Solution deploys MongoDB Atlas on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. MongoDB Atlas helps to ensure availability, scalability, and security compliance by using automation to maintain performance at scale as your applications evolve. Extend your data to support any workload that uses MongoDB’s application data platform, including full-text search and real-time analytics. For a fully managed MongoDB cluster, try it for free on AWS Marketplace.

This Partner Solution is for developers and DevOps professionals who want to deploy a flexible, fully managed databases on AWS using MongoDB Atlas. By default, the template creates an Atlas project with a standard, single-Region, M10 cluster that can be customized for different configurations and project settings.

This Partner Solution was developed by MongoDB in collaboration with AWS. MongoDB is an AWS Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • Use this Partner Solution to set up the following MongoDB Atlas environment on AWS:

    • A virtual private cloud (VPC) that spans two Availability Zones. The VPC is configured with public subnets, according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
    • In the public subnets, managed NAT gateways to allow outbound internet access.*
    • A VPC peering connection between your VPC and the MongoDB Atlas project VPC.
    • A VPC for the MongoDB Atlas project that spans at least three Availability Zones. This includes a fully managed MongoDB Atlas cluster, a database user, and an IP access list entry.

    *  The template that deploys the Partner Solution into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.
