Support for Apple M1 Silicon?

Does mongodb work with the new Apple M1 Silicon macs? The question also applies for MongoDB Compass.

Would love to know if there’s a public roadmap or issue tracker for this.

Thank you!

Welcome to the community forums @Edrich_Chua!

Apple Silicon (aka ARM64 on macOS) is not a Supported Platform yet for MongoDB server or database tools.

Some relevant issues to watch in the Jira issue tracker are:

Although there appear to be some required upstream dependency updates to get native M1 support implemented (for example, MozJS for the MongoDB server and Electron for Compass), it should be possible to run current Intel binaries using the M1’s Rosetta Translation Environment. However, this is not an environment that we have thoroughly tested with MongoDB products yet and there will be some performance overhead for Rosetta translation.

The generally available M1 Macs have only been out for a few weeks now, but I expect platform support to improve as they become more widely adopted and tested.
