MongoDB 5.0 Debuts
July 13, 2021
made series of product enhancements from the keynote stage of MongoDB's
annual conference, MongoDB.live. These updates include the launch and
General Availability of MongoDB 5.0 with native time series support, the
preview of serverless databases in MongoDB Atlas, and the continued
evolution of its industry leading application data platform with
enhancements to Atlas Search, Atlas Data Lake, and MongoDB's end-to-end
mobile data solution, Realm.
From multi-cloud clusters or serverless instances in Atlas to private
and hybrid deployments managed by Ops Manager 5.0 and Kubernetes, no
other database gives developers as much freedom. MongoDB 5.0 makes it
even easier to support a broader range of workloads, introduces new ways
of future-proofing applications, and further enhances privacy and
Seamless Data Redistribution: Live Resharding allows users to change the shard key for collections on-demand as workloads grow and evolve, with no database downtime or complex migrations.
Future-proof Application Compatibility: Developers can now future-proof their applications with the Versioned API. The application lifecycle can be decoupled from the database lifecycle, providing a level of investment protection that is ahead of other databases. Developers can have confidence that their application code will continue to run unchanged for years, without interruption, even as the database is upgraded and improved beneath it.
Multi-cloud privacy controls: MongoDB's unique Client-Side Field Level Encryption (FLE) now brings some of the strongest data privacy controls to multi-cloud clusters. Backed by always-on auditing and certificate rotation, MongoDB 5.0 helps users maintain a strict security posture with no interruption to applications, and with the freedom to run applications anywhere.
Serverless Database on MongoDB Atlas Now in Preview
Developers can now get the flexible, expressive power of the
industry-leading document database with the ease of a serverless model.
Serverless instances, now available in preview, support the latest
MongoDB capabilities so users never have to worry about backwards
compatibility or upgrades. Users simply choose a cloud region to get
started, then start building with documents that map directly to objects
MongoDB Realm now supports the Unity game engine. Users can now use Realm to store game data, like scores and player stats, and sync it automatically across devices. MongoDB is also investing in support for more cross-platform frameworks — the Kotlin Multiplatform and Flutter/Dart SDKs are now both available in Alpha.
MongoDB Charts is now integrated with Atlas Data Lake. Users can now easily visualize rich data stored in Amazon AWS S3 without any data movement, duplication or transformation. By adding Atlas Data Lake as a data source in Charts, users can discover deeper, more meaningful insights in real-time
