MongoDB is a general purpose, document-based, distributed database built for modern application developers and for the cloud era.

Create a MongoDB Database

All MongoDb servers are 100% dedicated to your environment.

  1. Login or Create a KintoHub account
  2. Click on the Create Service button at the top right of your environment
  3. Click on the From Catalog tab at the top right
  4. Click on the MongoDB option in the list
  5. Optionally enable Authentication and input or generate your Username, Password and Root Password
  6. Click on the Deploy button at the top right and wait until the release is successful
  7. Once deployed, click on the Access Tab to read the access related options

Access Your MongoDB Instances

Access from service running on KintoHub

You may only access your MongoDB Instance from services running in the same environment. Learn more about how to connect to your MongoDB Instance under the Access Tab.

Access from local machine

You can install the Kinto CLI and run kinto teleport from a .git folder that has been deployed on KintoHub with a MongoDB database. Using the tunnel that is created with this command, you can use any 3rd party mongo client to connect or the mongo cli.


In the very near future: kinto teleport --all will allow you to access MongoDb without having previously deployed another service with it

MongoDB Advanced Options

Replica Count

Increasing your replicas will create Highly Available MongoDB instances. You can increase or decrease your replicas under the Configurations tab when creating a MongoDB service. It's recommended to have at least 3 replicas in production environments or any environments you wish to decrease the chances of downtime. Read more about replicas here.

Cost Optimization

Enabling Cost Optimization is not recommended for production environments. Cost optimization places your instances on Spot or Pre-emptible cloud instances which can incur random downtime. For best effort uptime, you must disable cost optimization.

(Storage) Persistence

MongoDB has an optional (Storage) Persistence and Volume Size options available under the Advanced Options Tab.
