Does Atlas support gridFS?

We are using Mongo enterprise v3.4 on-premise to store BLOB using gridfs. And exploring Atlas for migrating the data from on-prem to cloud. Does Atlas support gridFS?

Hi Harry,

Yes absolutely: GridFS is useful when you want to store your binary files directly with your metadata. However for completeness, note that many folks prefer to use AWS S3/Azure Blob Storage/Google Cloud Storage for object storage in public cloud contexts, and then store metadata in MongoDB Atlas. Both are options!

Cheers
