I would like an easy way to deploy and connect to a MongoDB instance in Render.
This might be a difficult feature to implement based on the MongoDB licensing terms. From MongoDB directly:
> The only substantive modification is section 13, which makes clear the condition to offering MongoDB as a service. A company that offers a publicly available MongoDB as a service must release the software it uses to offer such service under the terms of the SSPL, including the management software, user interfaces, application program interfaces, automation software, monitoring software, backup software, storage software and hosting software, all such that a user could run an instance of the service using the source code made available.
This is why you (unfortunately) don't see MongoDB as a service anywhere but Atlas (MongoDB owned provider).
Would love this feature as well. Considering the fact that schema-less mongodb is often better suited for startups and prototyping, which I presume is render's key audience right now. MongoDB sits nicely between redis and postgres.
Any update on this feature?
