In June, we introduced DigitalOcean Managed MongoDB - a fully managed database as a service (DBaaS) offering that simplifies the administration of MongoDB. This month, we worked on some key integrations with Managed MongoDB that help further accelerate the process of app development and reduce administrative tasks. Below are some of the key updates we released in July.
DigitalOcean App Platform integration with Managed MongoDB
DigitalOcean App Platform is a fully managed solution that enables you to build, deploy, and scale your apps quickly without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. App Platform seamlessly integrates with Managed MongoDB, allowing you to choose Managed MongoDB as the database for your app. You can either spin up a Managed MongoDB cluster when you’re creating your app using App Platform or connect your app to a previously created MongoDB cluster. Here’s a great video that shows how you can create a dynamic app using App Platform and power its backend with Managed MongoDB.
Node.js 1-Click App integration with Managed MongoDB
We've launched new preconfigured 1-Click Apps in the DigitalOcean Marketplace to help you save time and remove the hassle of provisioning servers. These include:
Updates to DigitalOcean Command Line Interface (CLI)
We have released a new version of doctl, the official DigitalOcean CLI:
v1.62.0 - This release fixes a handful of bugs and introduces new flags on existing commands:
Updates to DigitalOcean Terraform Provider
v2.10.0 - This release includes support for Kubernetes improvement policy and making create timeouts configurable for DBaaS and K8s clusters.
v2.10.1 - This release includes some bug fixes and docs update to add code fence to docs for MongoDB.
We hope you’ll give these new products and updates a try. If you have an idea for improving our products or want to vote on other user ideas so they get prioritized, please submit your feedback. And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here.
Until next month,
