MongoDB Backup Free Usage Tier

Hi all,

We're excited to announce the free usage tier for MMS Backup, our online backup service designed for MongoDB.

What is Backup? MMS Backup provides point-in-time recovery for replica sets and consistent snapshots for sharded systems with minimal performance impact. The backup agent continually reads the oplog and securely transfers the data to MMS so you always have an up-to-date backup.

What is the free tier? During your first 12 months using the service, any monthly bill under $5 is on us. What does $5 get you? It’s roughly enough to back up a 5GB database with 100MB of oplog data churn per month.

What is it for? You can use the free tier to sample backup for larger, mission critical applications. You can also use MMS during development before your data set grows. And the tier is perfect for side projects that you want to safeguard but don’t have the time to invest in building a backup strategy.
