As the volume and velocity of data grows daily, business success depends on the ability to manage it effectively and transform it into actionable insights. Since 2019, Google Cloud and MongoDB have worked together to give businesses the secure, global, and highly performant infrastructure, the sophisticated data intelligence, and the developer-centric tools they need to power modern, data-driven cloud applications. Our partnership with MongoDB continues to deliver richer yet simpler ways to lead with software.
With MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud, developers can build upon a solid foundation that enables them to work with data the way they want in support of global-scale applications. For example, Forbes, a large business media brand, migrated its platform to Google Cloud and MongoDB Atlas in just six months. The company’s new cloud infrastructure helped the website scale to accommodate record-breaking growth even while making development more nimble. MongoDB’s document model meant developers could build new features quickly, easily incorporate changes, and better handle a growing diversity of data types. It also allowed for more powerful tools, such a machine-language trending story recommendation engine for journalists. Results have been impressive, including:
58% faster build time for new products and fixes
Accelerated release cycle by 4x
Reduced total cost of ownership by 25%
28% increase in subscriptions from new newsletters
The Forbes team is already looking ahead, with plans for improved personalization, loyalty, and management of first-party data. “Our decision to migrate to Google Cloud was made based on the toolset that it offers, scalability, and developer friendliness,” says Vadim Supitsky, Forbes CTO.
Over the course of the partnership between MongoDB and Google Cloud, we have continually added new benefits for our mutual customers, such as the ability to to integrate MongoDB Atlas with Google Cloud products; leveraging BigQuery to create a managed, serverless, scalable architecture; rich data connectivity; and flexible scaling. We’ve also made it easier to migrate MongoDB on-premises instances to MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud.
Making MongoDB on Google Cloud even more flexible with Pay-Go
That’s why we’re excited to see yet another reason for companies to choose MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud: A new pay-as-you-go option, available on the Google Cloud Marketplace.

Here are just a few of the benefits of this new service:

We’re excited to see even further growth in our continuing partnership with three new developments: First, because resellers are such an important force, we are pleased to share that reseller partners can now make MongoDB Atlas available via the Google Cloud Marketplace. Second, MongoDB and Google Cloud have expanded our joint reach to 28 global regions after adding Toronto, Canada, and Santiago, Chile. And third, we’ve made a joint commitment to early stage companies through MongoDB for Startups and the Google for Startups Cloud Program. Pay-Go is great for startups because it’s easy to scale and you only pay for what you use. Similarly, MongoDB and Google are helping startups get off the ground with our respective programs, which both include credits and support.
Your company’s transformation hinges on new cloud database capabilities. The first step to building all-new digital experiences is to select the operational database that will power your application and, in essence, run your business.The partnership between MongoDB and Google Cloud gives you the benefits of a modern database service in a tightly integrated, cloud-native way.
