Standard driver and REST API support
Connect to your database using standard MongoDB drivers in the language of your choice or use MongoLab's JSON-based REST API.
Keep your database close to your app server! MongoLab provides MongoDB hosting on all the major cloud platforms — Amazon, Google, Joyent, Rackspace, and Windows Azure — and has partnered with all of the major Platform-as-a-Service providers to enable seamless integration with the application tier.
In addition to single-node databases, MongoLab offers multi-node, multi-zone Replica Set clusters with automatic failover for production applications with demanding uptime requirements.
Continuous monitoring and alerting
MongoLab is constantly monitoring the health and performance of every server, ensuring your database stays up and stays fast. We offer streaming, real-time metrics on our Real-time Dashboard, and we fully integrate with MMS Monitoring, which collects and graphs key database and host metrics over time.
Slow query analyzer
Easily optimize your database performance by taking advantage of MongoLab's automated slow query analyzer! We regularly identify and analyze your slow queries and use our popular open-source analysis tool, Dex, to make index recommendations.
MongoLab makes it very easy to schedule one-off snapshots or recurring backup plans. We give you the flexibility to store backups with MongoLab or in your own container at your favorite cloud storage provider (e.g., Amazon S3). We also show you backup history details and make it simple to download and/or restore a backup.
Web-based management tools
Our admin tools give you insight into your data and control over your database. You can save and execute common searches with tabular data views and edit any document with a single click. You can view logs in real time and retrieve previous days' logs as needed. You can see DB statistics and optimize your queries and indexes; our robots can even offer you specific suggestions based on analysis of your query patterns.
In addition to MongoLab's standard no-fuss email support, our higher-end production plan customers get premium support. This includes a 24x7 emergency support email as well as Commercial Support with one-hour SLA from MongoDB, Inc. Our partnership with MongoDB, Inc. allows
us to provide our users with the highest level of support with priority access to MongoDB engineers and emergency patches.
