MongoDB offering for for the ObjectRocket cloud platform: available features

This section provides an overview of the available features on the MongoDB offering for the ObjectRocket cloud platform.

Automated compactions

ObjectRocket can automatically handle compactions for you, making sure you’re using the least possible space. MongoDB data files can contain fragmentation due to daily operations, which can sometimes make the database use more space than required. Perform a stepdown to let ObjectRocket compact your instance, keeping fragmentation in check. You can learn more about the MongoDB space allocation at Understanding MongoDB Space Usage and Why are the files in my data directory larger than the data in my database?.

Daily backups

ObjectRocket performs backups once daily by default. If you need a different schedule, contact the Sales team. ObjectRocket takes backups per instance, and they’re free when you use the default retention period.
