February 07, 2023 - Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) continues to increase compatibility with MongoDB, and now offers added support for MongoDB API version 5.0 drivers with Amazon DocumentDB 5.0. Amazon DocumentDB is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB API based workloads. Amazon DocumentDB makes it easy and intuitive to store, index, and query JSON data.

The following are some of the major features and capabilities introduced in Amazon DocumentDB 5.0:
  • Client-side Field Level Encryption (FLE) - With Amazon DocumentDB 5.0, you can now encrypt sensitive data in-application before it is sent to Amazon DocumentDB, and build applications that handle sensitive and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data and comply with data regulatory requirements.
  • 128 TiB Storage Limit - Amazon DocumentDB doubles the storage volume in Amazon DocumentDB 5.0. Storage scales automatically with no additional cost and you are only charged for the storage that you use in an Amazon DocumentDB cluster volume. 
  • Aggregate Operators - You can now use $dateAdd and $dateSubstract MongoDB API operators when working with date fields. For more information, see Supported MongoDB APIs, Operations, and Data Types.

You can now upgrade your 3.6 and 4.0 instance-based clusters to Amazon DocumentDB 5.0 clusters. Amazon DocumentDB 5.0 is available on graviton instances in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, and all regions where Amazon DocumentDB is available.
