Eliot Horowitz recently shared his insights on the release of MongoDB 2.6. He writes, “In the five years since the initial release of MongoDB, and after hundreds of thousands of deployments, we have learned a lot. The time has come to take everything we have learned and create a basis for continued innovation over the next ten years… with the release of MongoDB 2.6, we have achieved that goal. With comprehensive core server enhancements, a groundbreaking new automation tool, and critical enterprise features, MongoDB 2.6 is by far our biggest release ever. You’ll see the benefits in better performance and new innovations. We re-wrote the entire query execution engine to improve scalability, and took our first step in building a sophisticated query planner by introducing index intersection. We’ve made the codebase easier to maintain, and made it easier to implement new features. Finally, MongoDB 2.6 lays the foundation for massive improvements to concurrency in MongoDB 2.8, including document-level locking.”

Horowitz continues, “From the very beginning, MongoDB has offered developers a simple and elegant way to manage their data. Now we’re bringing that same simplicity and elegance to managing MongoDB. MongoDB Management Service (MMS), which already provides 35,000 MongoDB customers with monitoring and alerting, now provides backup and point-in-time restore functionality, in the cloud and on-premises. We are also announcing a game-changing feature coming later this year: automation, also with hosted and on-premises options. Automation will allow you to provision and manage MongoDB replica sets and sharded clusters via a simple yet sophisticated interface.”
