MongoDB is a source-available cross-platform document-oriented database program for high-volume storage. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with optional schemas.
There are two kinds of database cluster plans you can choose from: single node clusters and high availability clusters.
Single node clusters begin at $15.00 per month for a single node cluster with 1 GB of RAM. Single node clusters are not highly available. These clusters are a good fit for preliminary development and testing.
High availability clusters begin at $45.00 per month for the 1 GB RAM/1 vCPU plan when you add standby nodes for automatic failover. We only support three node replica sets for high availability MongoDB clusters. For more information about MongoDB’s high availability cluster architecture, see MongoDB’s official documentation.
MongoDB clusters are available in the NYC3, AMS3, and FRA1 datacenter regions.
Daily point-in-time backups. Full cluster backups are taken daily and write-ahead-logs are maintained to allow you to restore to any point-in-time within the previous seven days.
High availability with automated failover. In the event of a failure, managed databases with a standby node will automatically switch data handling to the standby node to prevent unplanned downtime. Learn more about high availability for managed databases.
End-to-end security. Data is encrypted at the media level while at rest, and with SSL during transit.
Cluster metrics and alerting. Cluster metrics visualizations help you monitor the performance of the nodes in a database cluster, like resource usage, to guide capacity planning and optimization. Alert policies notify you when a metric rises above or falls below a threshold you set, like high CPU or low memory.
We support only MongoDB v4.4.
To maintain cluster stability, users cannot access the
You cannot add users to a MongoDB cluster using the
mongo shell. Users must be added to the cluster using the DigitalOcean Control Panel.
MongoDB clusters cannot be migrated to other regions at this time.
You must use a third-party client to manage access control lists (ACLs). You can add users and databases from the DigitalOcean Control Panel.
You can’t use DigitalOcean’s Cloud Firewalls with managed databases. Until support is available, you can restrict access to nodes by their incoming IPv4 addresses. You can also add Droplets and other resources by their names or tags to a cluster’s trusted sources.
The MongoDB database engine is now in general availability.
