MongoDB Atlas Review

Our queries are quicker with it. It is also very easy to use.


What is our primary use case?

We use it for hosting data on the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

It enables us to get work done quickly and get to our data. It benefits us by providing performance.

What is most valuable?

  • As a user, it is very easy to use. There is nothing complicated.
  • We can write queries and go through it very quickly; our queries are quicker with it. 
  • Many tools are there. Other companies are providing many tools for getting to your MongoDB.

What needs improvement?

The import and export process needs improvement, i.e., getting in and out. Moving data from other databases into MongoDB, along with indexing, was challenging. However, it has been improving.

I would like them to make the product easier to use.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We are happy right now with stability unless something goes wrong down the line. In that case, you have to bite the bullet.

In terms of workloads, we put 60 to 80 percent on it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

So far, so good. However, we have had issues with our VPC, and how we have stored on S3 and our instances that we have with MongoDB. We are learning as we are building more capacity.

Our environment is utility customers, which is millions of meters, and each one has their own instance. We obtain that data for every 15 minutes in a big city environment, which is why performance is very important.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. We have received very good feedback.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration were pretty easy. We loved it. Otherwise, we would have changed databases.

What was our ROI?

We have definitely seen ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The purchasing process through the AWS Marketplace was very good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was involved later on in the evaluation process when we were looking to import and export data out of MongoDB. We looked at MySQL, but we wanted to be on the cloud instead of managing our data on MySQL.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it. It is better than the legacy databases, and it is very good with the cloud.

We integrated it with TestRail and JIRA. Everything is on cloud. It integrates well, and we are happy with it.
