MongoDB Backup Free Usage Tier Announced

We're pleased to introduce the free usage tier to MongoDB Management Service (MMS). MMS provides free monitoring and premium backup for MongoDB.

What is MMS Backup? MMS Backup provides point-in-time recovery for replica sets and consistent snapshots for sharded systems with minimal performance impact. The backup agent continually reads the oplog and securely transfers the data to MMS so you always have an up-to-date backup.

What is the free tier? During your first 12 months using the service, any monthly bill under $5 is on us. What does $5 get you? It’s roughly enough to back up a 5GB database with 100MB of oplog data per month.

What is it for? You can use the free tier to sample backup for larger, mission critical applications. You can also use MMS during development before your data set grows. And the tier is perfect for side projects that you want to safeguard but don’t have the time to invest in building a backup strategy.

Start backing up today at mms.mongodb.com.
