MongoDB’s New Products
Over the past year, MongoDB announced several products that demonstrate how it is evolving its data platform for applications with greater functionality and scope.
Atlas Data Lake brings transactional and analytical use cases together by allowing customers to query both operational and archive data. Atlas Search brings the previously separate search functionality into the operational database.
Finally, the integration of its $39 million acquisition of Realm with its serverless platform Stitch has fuelled its PaaS strategy. San Francisco-based Realm was founded in 2011 as a mobile database that enabled its users to develop faster applications. Realm makes it easy to build reactive apps with collaborative features and offline-first experiences, There are more than 100,000 active developers using Realm.
Stitch facilitates the rapid development of mobile and web applications. The services provided in Stitch give developers access to database functionality as well as security and privacy controls. The integration will address the issue of edge to core data synchronization. These and other future products will leverage its powerful API to access large amounts of data easily to provide an unparalleled developer experience.
To help attract and retain enterprise customers, MongoDB has ensured that it has strong cloud partnerships. Its platform can operate on all major cloud providers including Google Cloud, AWS, and Microsoft Azure.
Here are some use cases for MongoDB platform.

The company expanded its use of MongoDB last quarter because they wanted a data platform provider that was cloud-agnostic, highly scalable, enterprise-security-ready, and trusted by their Fortune 500 customers.
Location-aware data infrastructure company Radar Labs chose MongoDB Atlas to power its geolocation platform, which currently runs on more than 25 million devices around the globe, processing billions of location data points each week. An early member of MongoDB for start-ups program, Radar Labs continues to make big bets on MongoDB to help scale the delivery of its rich geolocation services, so its developers can focus on the company’s goal of making every app on every device, contextually aware.
