MongoDB Server Lifecycle: End Of Life And Support Status

Last updated on January 23, 2024

MongoDB is a non-relational database that is offered as both cloud-based and on-premise deployment. The cloud-based version is called “MongoDB Atlas” which is a fully managed solution, and the on-premise self-managed version is called “MongoDB Server“. The table below covers the lifecycle for both of these versions.

Support status guide

End of life (EOL) is the end of a product’s useful life. When a product reaches the end of its life cycle, the manufacturer no longer supports it. The following table explains the different phases of a product’s lifecycle. Testing status is when the product is initially released and EOL is when product support is no longer offered. The time between these two points is the support timeframe.

Testing

The software is not yet publicly available. It is in testing phase i.e., alpha, beta, release preview etc.

Active

The software is actively supported by the vendor.

Phasing Out

The software will soon reach its end of life. You need to look for upgrade or migration options. The software will automatically go into phasing out status 2 months before end of life.

End Of Life

The software is no longer supported by the vendor. You need to make sure your system and environment are safe.

Each MongoDB Server version is supported for 30 months from the day of its General Availability (GA).

There is support for MongoDB Stable API compatibility with MongoDB Server. Every GA release of the Stable API is compatible with all major releases of the MongoDB Server that are made available on or within five years of the Stable API’s release date.

After MongoDB 5.0 was released, Rapid Releases were launched which are updates for the database that occur at least once every quarter. These updates include new features and security improvements. Rapid Releases are only supported within MongoDB Atlas and are not supported for on-premises deployments.

The MongoDB manufacturers also maintain a list of lifecycle schedules.
