Cloud Manager is a service that lets you create, manage, monitor, and back up MongoDB deployments. You can use Cloud Manager to create new deployments and manage existing ones. To manage existing deployments you download Cloud Manager agents to your deployment servers.
To use Cloud Manager you create a Cloud Manager group, which will provide access to a distinct set of MongoDB processes and users. Choose a globally unique name for the group; this name must be unique within the Cloud Manager platform. For security and auditing reasons, you cannot use a name used earlier, and once you name a group, the group’s name cannot be changed. You can create multiple groups.
You can get started with Cloud Manager in minutes by going to https://www.mongodb.com/cloud/cloud-manager and starting a free trial. Cloud Manager walks you through registration and the setup of your first deployment. The choices you make during setup do not limit your choices for the future.
