Database > Atlas Service




We use a MongoDB Atlas instance to store data related to the new CloudForest platform. There are actually two databases on one instance, one for (sandboxed) development and one for production, each having the same structure but different content.

Configuration

Technically, we have a M20 series instance hosted in AWS’s us-east-1 region. This class provides 2 vCPUs, 4 GB RAM, 20 GB storage, a maximum of 700 connections, and continuous backups. Given that cfserver mediates all interaction with the database, we aren’t yet greatly concerned about database performance other than read/write latency. In fact, for most of our beta run we operated out of the free tier, M0 class with only a shared resources, 512 MB of storage, and no backup, and for all intensive purposes everything worked fine.

Security

Our database instance has…

  • whitelisted ips?
  • user-based access?
  • encryption at rest?
