We are announcing that IBM Cloud Databases for MongoDB (Enterprise Edition) will no longer support the creation of On Demand backups beginning on March 1, 2024.

On Demand backups are being replaced by the recently deployed Point in Time Recovery (PITR) capabilities in the Enterprise Edition of our popular fully managed MongoDB service.

With PITR, you can restore a copy of your database to any point in the past seven days. This gives you granular access to the past state of your database.

Your Enterprise deployments of IBM Cloud Databases for MongoDB will continue to have automated daily backups, in line with our backup policies.

On Demand backups taken up until February 29, 2024, will be kept for 30 days, in line with our current policies.

Also note that this announcement does not affect the Standard Edition of IBM Cloud Databases for MongoDB. Our Standard edition does not support PITR, but you will continue to be able to take On Demand backups.

Replacing antiquated multi-component central processing units (CPUs) with separate logic units, these single-chip processors are both extremely valuable in the continued development of computing technology. However, microcontrollers and microprocessors differ significantly in component structure, chip architecture, performance capabilities and application. The key difference between these two units is that microcontrollers combine all the necessary elements…

Seven top central processing unit (CPU) use cases

7 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain, assigning and processing tasks and managing essential operational functions.

It’s a staggering amount—so many CPUs that a conclusive figure can only be approximated. How many CPUs are now in use? It’s been estimated that there may be as many as 200 billion CPU cores (or more)…

Prioritizing operational resiliency to reduce downtime in payments

2 min read - The average lost business cost following a data breach was USD 1.3 million in 2023, according to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach report.
