Strategic Collaboration Agreement to Focus on Accelerating Customer Workload Migrations to the Cloud
MongoDB, the leading modern, general-purpose database platform, announced a significant expansion of a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Under this six-year agreement, MongoDB and AWS have committed to a broad range of initiatives to make it easier for joint customers to advance their cloud adoption journey, including integrated go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, developer enablement and training through shared developer relations activities, and both technology integrations and commercial incentives to streamline the migration of on-premises workloads to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
This agreement builds on the current multi-year relationship between MongoDB and AWS aimed at driving customer adoption of MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
In an effort to further improve the customer experience, both companies have agreed to collaborate together across sales, customer support, solution architecture, marketing, and other areas to make MongoDB Atlas an exceptional experience for developers on AWS globally. This includes increased workload migration incentives and enhanced tools to help customers move from legacy technologies in on-premises data centers to MongoDB Atlas on AWS.
Both companies will also work together to offer new joint capabilities for customers in the areas of serverless, AWS Graviton processors, and AWS Outposts. Finally, this partnership will support MongoDB’s expansion into further AWS Regions across the globe and US Public Sector with FedRAMP authorisation.
These efforts come on the heels of the recent collaborations announced at AWS re:Invent, including a pay-as-you-go MongoDB Atlas offering on the AWS Marketplace and updates to the AWS Management Console that make it easier for customers to find Atlas. The console will give customers a simpler discovery and purchase experience through AWS Marketplace.
Shutterfly Chief Technology Officer Moudy Elbayadi said several years ago, the company embarked on a strategic initiative to migrate the entire Shutterfly ecommerce platform to the public cloud because we realized the sheer complexity combined with the overall cost of managing our own infrastructure took away from our ability to innovate.
“By leveraging MongoDB Atlas on AWS, our platform resiliency has increased along with the overall performance of our applications allowing our platform to scale during our seasonal peaks. Additionally, being able to offload the undifferentiated day-to-day work associated with managing our own databases allows our talented team to focus on building personalised experiences that delight our customers,” said Shutterfly Chief Technology Officer Moudy Elbayadi.
AWS Asia Pacific and Japan Head of Technology partners Stanley Chan said the company’s collaboration with MongoDB has already seen success in APAC helping some of the best companies in the region transform and grow.
“From established brands like Bendigo and Adelaide Bank in Australia, to start-up success stories like Ludo King in India, we’ve demonstrated the combined power of AWS and MongoDB’s Application Data Platform. We’re excited to build on our shared obsession for customer success across our enterprise and digital customers in APAC and take this collaboration to the next level,” said AWS Asia Pacific and Japan Head of Technology partners Stanley Chan.
MongoDB uses AWS’s global reach and range of services to advance the performance of its database service, and enable customers to store, access, and build applications from anywhere in the world.
As part of this collaboration, MongoDB leverages the AWS Marketplace to enable customers to run MongoDB Atlas on AWS and build applications that are highly available, performant at global scale, highly secure, and compliant with privacy standards. MongoDB on AWS works with a wide range of AWS services to enable customers to analyze data with the broadest set of analytical approaches and integrate advanced services in machine learning and Internet of Things.
MongoDB Executive Vice President of Worldwide Partners Alan Chhabra said designed for developers by developers, MongoDB delivers an application data platform that spans multiple geographies, clouds, and deployment types to solve the data challenges of transactional workloads and modern applications.
“The continued growth and reach of our collaboration with AWS means that many more customers across a variety of industries will be able to use MongoDB Atlas to power the next generation of applications,” said MongoDB Executive Vice President of Worldwide Partners Alan Chhabra.
AWS Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances Ruba Borno said MongoDB has been both a customer and trusted AWS Partner for years, using AWS’s broad and deep set of functionalities, proven operational performance, and security to help organizations move their software and data into the cloud faster with a seamless user experience.
“Running MongoDB Atlas on AWS gives customers a richer application developer experience and helps customers make better use of their data,” said AWS Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances Ruba Borno.
AWS Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances Ruba Borno said MongoDB shares a mindset of driving innovation, improving reliability, and ensuring customers’ efforts to become more data-driven organisations in the cloud, whether they’re startups or enterprises, working in the private or public sector.
