More MongoDB.local London Announcements
In addition to announcing MongoDB 5.1 this morning, MongoDB announced some other cool things:
- 100x faster facets and counts in Atlas Search (in preview). Faceted search allows users to filter and quickly navigate search results by categories and see the total number of results per category for at-a-glance statistics. Fast facets and counts are essential in search-first applications such as product catalogs and content search.
- REST APIs are one of the most common ways that developers work with and interact with data today but previously they would have had to build their own for MongoDB. We will be announcing the Atlas Data API, a REST-like, resilient API that will allow developers to perform basic CRUD and rich aggregations against Atlas databases. This will be publicly available soon.
