Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads. As a document database, Amazon DocumentDB makes it easy to store, query, and index JSON data at scale.

Amazon DocumentDB(with MongoDB compatibility) now supports the T4g.medium and R6g instance types (Graviton2 instances).

Amazon Graviton2 processors are custom built by Amazon Web Services using 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores and deliver several performance optimizations over first-generation Amazon Graviton processors. These performance improvements make Graviton2 R6g database instances a great choice for database workloads. Amazon DocumentDB Graviton2 instances are available in sizes medium to 16xlarge.

You can launch Graviton2 R6g instances and T4g.medium instances in the Amazon DocumentDB Management Console or using the Amazon Web Services CLI. Upgrading an existing DocumentDB instance to Graviton2 requires a simple instance type modification, using the same steps as any other instance modification. Your applications will continue to work as normal and you will not have to port application code. For more details on database version support refer to our documentation.
