Pros: Software delivers what I need, and the support is prompt and professional. The service runs very stable, and whenever there was an issue or I needed support, I was promptly given it.

Cons: There is nothing I don't like about the product. I can only recommend it and we are absolutely happy with all aspects of the service.

Great customer service but could be cheaper

Pros: customer support when I had questions about my MongoDB collection size -- they got back to me very quickly and resolved my concern

Cons: Cost is a bit too high - I really do not think that hosting one MongoDB should cost more

Pros: BYOC, easy accessible GUI, Reports to filter out slow and un-indexed queries.
Built in alert rules are more than enough to notify any issues. quick response from support.

Cons: Weekly digest email of performance hits, improvements and how we can remediate would be much useful for production databases. can reduce the cost.

Pros: Fluidic UI, nice features and functionality, lightening fast response from support team for the queries posted or during issues. You can just know everything about your DB.

Cons: Nothing major as of now. But for its sake, I feel Slow query tab could be improved a little bit as it takes a little more time complete the analysis ( I still feel its very negligible)

Pros: Ease of use, hassle free. The support team is also very responsive with questions from our engineering team.

Cons: Nothing to be complained about at the moment, it's a fully hosted solution so we don't have to worry about anything.

Pros: Quality help and guidance to choosing the right configuration of our MongoDB cluster.
Makes it easy to find missing indexes, and gives us good insight into how we use our data.

Cons: I find it a bit expensive.
Some of the features in the control panel / monitoring system are a bit slow, and some explanation to some of the features would be nice.

ScaleGrid makes it easy to run secure, managed, and scalable Mongo infrastructure.

Pros: Easy to use web console. Flexible security options. Responsive support team. That combination of pros really made it easy to roll out the product in our test, stage, and production environments. Once it was rolled out, on-going administration with just as easy.

Cons: Web console is limited to a single user account. We have been told multiple accounts is in the development schedule.

Overall: We were able to significantly reduce our time to market by using ScaleGrid. Once we did launch we reduced our need for a dedicated Mongo DBA which effectively paid for the cost of the service.

Pros: Point and click, start up server using own infrastructure. Easy enough to configure, insightful analytics.

Cons: Costs are extremely high for using own infrastructure; essentially we're paying 2x purchasing price on AWS and Scalegrid; whereas scalegrid isn't anything but a control panel for AWS.

Very easy interface to setup and use MongoDB.

Pros: I like the integrated backup functionality and the monitoring dashboard. Also the feature tu start with an hosted version of MongoDB and do the transition to the selfhosted AWS VPC.

Cons: We hat problems and still have with the restrictions in access managment with AWS VPC (but not your fault). Cause we are not able to hide our hosts from your services else we create them in an complete separated AWS account.

Scalegrid is dead simple. Absolutely everything is taken care of.

Pros: The autoscaling feature works like a breeze
The bring your won cloud feature is very useful for startups that have AWS or Azure credits
MongoDB deployments with replica sets and sharding are managed very beautifully
Customer service is extremely prompt

Cons: The on-website console is a little jittery and has some limitations. You can use Compass or DBKoda instead.
You can't see documents on their dashboard

Overall: A young startup should use this instead of going all out with self deployment.
