As we welcome the period of AI, it’s vital to keep in mind that knowledge is the gas that powers AI. With this understanding, it’s clear why our objective is to make Azure the most effective vacation spot for knowledge. In Azure, prospects profit from a complete portfolio of database merchandise together with relational, non-relational, open supply, and caching options. We have now additionally established deep partnerships, just like the one we have now with MongoDB Inc., to allow digital transformation utilizing their databases as managed choices in Azure.

MongoDB is a number one knowledge platform firm that offers builders an intuitive approach to mannequin their knowledge. We’ve partnered with MongoDB for years however this 12 months we deepened our partnership considerably, culminating in a multiyear strategic partnership settlement. We’re extremely happy with the work we’ve executed collectively to make Azure a fantastic place to run MongoDB Atlas. Previously six months alone, MongoDB has change into one among our prime performing Azure Market companions pushed by the adoption of the MongoDB Atlas on Azure pay-as-you-go self-service providing.

Microsoft’s mission is to empower everybody to realize extra, and we all know that our prospects like utilizing MongoDB to construct functions. In 12 months one among our strategic partnership, we collaborated with MongoDB to make it even simpler for our joint prospects to do extra with Microsoft providers and MongoDB Atlas on Azure. We’ve enabled builders to make use of MongoDB Atlas in 40+ Azure areas globally—with our most up-to-date new location being in Doha, Qatar, which we introduced final month at our Ignite convention. And we all know it’s not simply concerning the knowledge middle, it’s additionally critically vital to make it simple for builders to get began with MongoDB Atlas on Azure. GitHub Copilot makes it simple to construct MongoDB functions on Azure as a result of its proficiency in making code recommendations and we’re working collectively to additional enhance GitHub Copilot’s efficiency utilizing MongoDB schema, amongst different issues.

See how MongoDB and GitHub Copilot come collectively on this video.

We’ve already seen prospects reaping the advantages of our strategic partnership. For instance, our joint work with Temenos helped to allow their banking prospects to succeed in record-high scale. And in one other case, Mural, a collaborative intelligence firm, shared their expertise of constructing with MongoDB Atlas and Microsoft Azure to assist their prospects collaborate higher and smarter.

MongoDB at Microsoft Ignite 2023

We proceed to make investments to enhance the shopper expertise of working MongoDB Atlas on Azure. In November, at Microsoft Ignite 2023, Microsoft and MongoDB introduced three important integrations: Microsoft Semantic Kernel, Microsoft Cloth, and Entity Framework (EF) Core. Let’s take a look at how prospects can profit from each.

  1. Semantic Kernel is an open supply SDK that allows combining AI providers like OpenAI, Azure OpenAI, and Hugging Face with programming languages like C# and Python. At Ignite, MongoDB introduced native help for MongoDB Atlas Vector Search in Semantic Kernel. MongoDB Atlas Vector Search permits prospects to combine operational knowledge and vectors in a unified and absolutely managed platform. Now, prospects can use Semantic Kernel to include Atlas Vector Search in functions. This allows, for instance, utilizing Atlas Vector Search to work together with retrieval-augmented technology (RAG) of their work with massive language fashions (LLMs), thereby decreasing the chance of AI hallucinations, amongst different advantages.
  2. Microsoft Cloth can reshape how your groups work with knowledge by bringing everybody collectively on a single, AI-powered platform constructed for the period of AI. MongoDB Atlas is the operational knowledge layer for a lot of functions, these prospects use MongoDB Atlas to retailer knowledge from inside enterprise functions, customer-facing providers, and third-party APIs throughout a number of channels. With connectors for Microsoft Cloth pipelines and Dataflow Gen2, our prospects can now mix MongoDB Atlas knowledge with relational knowledge from conventional functions and unstructured knowledge from sources like logs, clickstreams, and extra. At Microsoft Ignite, we noticed thrilling bulletins making this integration seamless and straightforward to make use of for MongoDB prospects. Through the first keynote, Microsoft introduced that Microsoft Cloth is now usually obtainable, and shared a brand new frictionless method so as to add and handle current cloud knowledge warehouses and databases, like MongoDB, in Cloth referred to as Mirroring. Now, MongoDB prospects can replicate a snapshot of their database to OneLake and OneLake will robotically maintain this duplicate in sync in close to real-time. You’ll be able to learn extra on the way to unlock the worth of knowledge in MongoDB Atlas with the clever analytics of Microsoft Cloth right here.
  3. Hundreds of thousands of builders rely on C# to put in writing their functions, and a big share of those use Entity Framework (EF) Core, a light-weight, extensible, open supply and cross-platform model of the favored Entity Framework knowledge entry know-how. MongoDB introduced that MongoDB Supplier for EF Core is now obtainable in Public Preview. This makes it attainable for builders utilizing EF Core to construct C#/.NET functions with MongoDB whereas persevering with to make use of their most well-liked APIs and design patterns.

In every case, we’ve labored intently with MongoDB to make sure builders, knowledge engineers, and knowledge scientists can simply join their MongoDB knowledge to Microsoft providers.

Seamlessly connect your data warehouses and databases to OneLake. Databases featured on the slide include: Azure Cosmos DB, Azure SQL DB, Snowflake and MongoDB.

A 12 months of strengthened collaboration

These new integrations observe a banner 12 months of collaboration between Microsoft and MongoDB. Past Microsoft Ignite, we’ve shared numerous wonderful developer information:

  • The MongoDB for VS Code Extension was made usually obtainable in August 2023. VS Code is the world’s hottest built-in growth surroundings (IDE), and builders downloaded the MongoDB extension over 1 million occasions throughout its public preview. This free, downloadable extension makes it simple for builders to construct functions and handle knowledge in MongoDB immediately from VS Code.
  • MongoDB built-in with a spread of providers throughout the Microsoft Clever Information Platform (MIDP), together with:
    • Azure Synapse Analytics, to make it simpler to investigate operational knowledge
    • Microsoft Purview, so customers can hook up with and safeguard MongoDB knowledge
    • Energy BI, making it attainable for knowledge analysts to natively remodel, analyze, and share dashboards that incorporate dwell MongoDB Atlas knowledge
    • Information Federation: Atlas Information Federation can now be deployed in Microsoft Azure and helps Microsoft Azure Blob Storage in personal preview.
Microsoft AI and cloud partners help customers achieve more. This is achieved by partners working together on that Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform, which includes Databases, Analytics, AI, and Governance. Featured partners are shown including: Aveva, DBT, ESRI, LSEG, Fivetran, Informatica, Qlik, Striim, Databricks, Epic, MongoDB, yugabyteDB, SAS, CluedIn, Delphix, Profisee, and Teradata.
Microsoft AI and cloud companions assist prospects obtain extra. That is achieved by companions working collectively on that Microsoft Clever Information Platform, which incorporates Databases, Analytics, AI, and Governance.
  • Collectively revealed tutorials and extra overlaying:

It has been a fantastic 12 months for Microsoft and MongoDB, collectively making it simpler for organizations of all sizes to do extra with their knowledge.
