MongoDB Elastic Deployments Now Available in Oregon



We have finally completed Oregon Trail (been trying since 5th grade). We're celebrating by launching Elastic Deployments optimized for use in the AWS us-west-2 datacenter. If you have a production, MongoDB backed application you want to run on the west coast, we'll now handle the database for you.

Elastic Deployments give you the best of MongoDB hosting — fully replicated databases running on fast SSDs with access to huge amounts of RAM. You only pay for what you use, at a flat monthly fee of $18/GB. You also get:
- Automatic daily backups, or run them On Demand - Oplog access - Autoscaling as your data grows (read the docs to learn how)

Have a look at our original Elastic Deployments announcement for more details.
