We’re excited to announce that a new line of production-ready Dedicated replica set plans are now available through the MongoLab add-on on Heroku!
Our fully managed Dedicated plans run on dedicated virtual machines (VMs) and offer guaranteed resources (RAM/IO/CPU), SSD-backed disks, and seamless zero-downtime scaling.
By using the MongoLab add-on on Heroku, teams can easily navigate between administering their Heroku application and their MongoDB deployment(s) via our integrated management portals and receive consolidated billing from Heroku for all their applications’ services.
Fully managed MongoDB-as-a-Service
MongoLab’s Dedicated plans come with:

Available in Heroku’s US and EU regions
All MongoLab plans available through Heroku’s add-on program are available in both Heroku’s US and EU regions.
It is highly recommended that teams deploy their MongoLab database into the same AWS region as their Heroku application. This keeps network traffic internal to the region which minimizes latency and maximizes security.
