Next-generation database developers MongoDB and Google Cloud extend their strategic alliance’s date, which got launched two years ago. This new partnership deal under MongoDB Atlas cloud database will get integrated with a hint of Google Cloud services.
The system integrators, ISVs (independent software vendors), and other solution provider partners of the two companies will develop new opportunities in cloud application development and cloud data migration.
MongoDB and Google Cloud have undertaken joint engineering tasks wherein MongoDB Atlas works along with Google application and services that run on the Google Cloud Platform, which includes Pub/Sub publish, subscribe messaging, TensorFlow machine learning, Cloud Functions serverless execution, Dataproc managed Hadoop, Spark, App Engine platform-as-a-service, and the Google Kubernetes Engine container environment.
“The new pre-built integrations and reference architectures being developed by MongoDB and Google Cloud will make it easier for an ISV partner or an in-house developer to build applications that tie into both MongoDB Atlas and all those Google Cloud services,” said Alan Chhabra, MongoDB Senior Vice President of Worldwide Partners.
“A developer, who is the person who uses MongoDB the most, potentially can now get a full-stack architecture to develop applications centered around MongoDB Atlas and Google Cloud services,” said Chhabra in an interview with CRN.
The joint development initiative “really solidifies the amount of pre-built integration work between the two companies’ platforms,” added Chhabra.
In February 2020, Google bought Cornerstone Technology and related tools for migrating mainframe workloads to the cloud. And to easily convert Cobol code on mainframes into Java-based applications that can run on MongoDB, the mainframe modernization tools started supporting MongoDB atlas, the company said on February 25, 2021.
The capabilities will help global and regional systems integration partners that both the companies intend to modernize legacy mainframe applications and move them to Google Cloud, uttered Chhabra.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with MongoDB to deliver Atlas at global scale on Google Cloud and help businesses leverage data in their digital transformations,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem at Google Cloud, in a statement. “This announcement builds on our shared commitment to helping businesses build a foundation for data-driven transformation. We are excited to build on significant customer successes with MongoDB on Google Cloud.”
Chhabra said that MongoDB and Google Cloud have experienced about a 300 percent increase in joint customer wins in the last year, especially in retail and financial services.
