ACID Transactions Coming to MongoDB 4.0

MongoDB To Get Multi-Document ACID Transaction Support — The recent big announcement by MongoDB’s CTO, Eliot Horowitz, was that MongoDB 4.0, due later this year, will support ACID-compliant transactions. You can watch the announcement video here.

MongoDB 4.0 will support transactions in a single replica set. A later release, MongoDB 4.2, will then add support for transactions across sharded deployments.

Want to get access to transaction support early? You can sign up for the beta.
