MongoLab is now mLab

We have some exciting news to share! Below is the email we sent to our users earlier today:


I'm very excited to share some important news with you.

Today we are changing our name from MongoLab to mLab in order to better align with our long-term vision.

When we started this business five years ago, our MongoLab database service was the first step of a larger mission. Our ultimate goal was to simplify server-side development.

We envisioned a cloud-based laboratory where developers could build and deploy the entire server side of their application with a completely software-defined interface. Our premise was that a cloud-based server-side application stack built around JSON, microservices, document databases (like MongoDB), and software-defined networking could radically simplify server-side development.

We decided to start at the bottom of the stack and work our way upwards. This meant building a Database-as-a-Service platform upon which we could layer the rest of the stack. Around the same time we discovered MongoDB and recognized it as the operational data store of the future.

And so we set out on Phase 1 and created MongoLab: the game-changing cloud database service developers worldwide have grown to love.

I'm proud to say that mLab has become THE place to run MongoDB in the cloud and now manages over 250,000 deployments on AWS, Azure, and Google. If you are using MongoDB in the cloud, there really is no better experience.

MongoLab was a great name for us when our only product was MongoDB-as-a-Service. But now we feel it is time to change our name to one that can accommodate the larger vision that we have around cloud infrastructure and cloud data services.

Over the coming quarters we will focus on our broader premise that server-side development is largely about securely moving and transforming JSON objects between the client and the database, and that it should be much easier than it is today.

To be clear, we are still fully committed to MongoDB and our cloud MongoDB service, as this is the backbone of our future vision. MongoDB Inc., the stewards of MongoDB, will continue to concentrate on enterprise customers who host the database themselves. Our job at mLab will be to focus on the rest of the world and to continue to provide the best fully managed MongoDB-as-a-Service for developers who want to build great apps without worrying about database operations.

Thank you for helping make us such a success. We truly appreciate that you have chosen our service and look forward to helping you build great software.

Will Shulman
CEO of mLab

Please help us spread the word!

    I just took my parse app to App engine and MongoLab. I’m betting on your guys for the long haul. Excited to see what you have to offer in terms of future vision. I know this whole deployment exercise was a pain, it’s got me curious what you got in the works

    What a coincidence !
    I had bookmarked the mongolab page some months back as mlab and it has now become the new name.
    Cheers !

    I only ask that you invest in better UI. Parse and now Google Cloud Platform UI have spoilt me to expect it from everyone. Its the sole reason I went GCP over AWS. Theres something baller about viewing all this tech behind beautiful UI – Think Uber

    Если говорить конкретнее, то это IMAP4, POP3 и SMTP. Возможностей коммуникации тут не так много.

    Для передачи файлов беспроводным путем (после сопряжения с соответствующим устройством) предусмотрен модуль “Блютуз” версии 2.1. Да, скорость передачи будет не настолько высокой, чтобы чем-то можно было хвастаться, да и беспроводную гарнитуру подключить не получится из-за отсутствия профиля A2D2. Но в целом модуль справляется с основными поставленными перед ним задачами.
