Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose now supports streaming data delivery to MongoDB Cloud. This feature enables you to use a fully managed service to stream data to MongoDB Cloud without building custom applications or worrying about operating and managing the data delivery infrastructure. Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose incorporates error handling, auto-scaling, transformation, conversion, aggregation, and compression to help you accelerate the deployment of data streams across your organization.

Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose is the easiest way to reliably load streaming data into data lakes, data stores, and analytics services. It can capture, transform, and deliver streaming data to Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Elasticsearch Service, generic HTTP endpoints, and service providers like MongoDB. It is a fully managed service that automatically scales to match the throughput of your data and requires no ongoing administration. With Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, you don't need to write applications or manage resources.

MongoDB Cloud is a great way to build data-driven applications. The core of MongoDB Cloud is MongoDB Atlas, an elastic cloud database with built-in Search and Data Lake services for powering diverse workloads through a common API. The streaming delivery from Kinesis Data Firehose to MongoDB is powered by MongoDB Realm webhooks making it easier than ever to build robust, reactive data pipelines that stream directly into MongoDB collections, and enable real-time querying, enrichment, and analytics.

Visit the Amazon Kinesis Console to configure your data producers to send data to Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose and specify MongoDB Cloud as the destination. Once set, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose takes care of reliable, scalable delivery of your streaming data to MongoDB. To learn more, explore the Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose developer guide.
