Standard driver and REST API support
Connect to your Google database using standard MongoDB drivers in the language of your choice or use mLab's JSON-based REST API.
In addition to single-node databases, mLab offers multi-node, multi-zone Replica Set clusters with automatic failover for production applications with demanding uptime requirements.
Continuous monitoring and alerting
mLab is constantly monitoring the health and performance of every server, ensuring your database stays up and stays fast. Telemetry, our real-time and historical monitoring tool, tracks key MongoDB metrics and helps you effectively monitor and tune database performance.
Slow query analyzer
Easily optimize your database performance by taking advantage of mLab's automated slow query analyzer! We regularly identify and analyze your slow queries and use our popular open-source analysis tool, Dex, to make index recommendations.
mLab makes it very easy to schedule one-off snapshots or recurring backup plans. We give you the flexibility to store backups with mLab or in your own container at your favorite cloud storage provider. We also show you backup history details and make it simple to download and/or restore a backup.
Web-based management tools
Our admin tools give you insight into your data and control over your database. You can save and execute common searches with tabular data views and edit any document with a single click. You can view logs in real time and retrieve previous days' logs as needed. You can see DB statistics and optimize your queries and indexes; our robots can even offer you specific suggestions based on analysis of your query patterns.
In addition to mLab's standard no-fuss email support, our higher-end production plan customers get 24x7 emergency support.
