Migrate or Import Data

You can bring data from existing MongoDB deployments, JSON, or CSV files into Atlas using either live migration tools where Atlas assists you, or tools for a self-guided migration of data into Atlas.

Note
Serverless Instances are in Preview

Serverless instances are in preview and don't support live migration or the MongoDB Tools. You can move data to a serverless instance by using Compass to export and import data.

To learn more about serverless instance limitations, see Serverless Instance Limitations.

Choose a Data Import and Migration Tool
Choose between different tools for data import and migration based on common cluster configurations.
Live Migrate Your Data from Ops Manager or Cloud Manager
Use the Atlas-managed Live Migration service to push data from a live deployment in Cloud Manager or Ops Manager into Atlas. Atlas guides you through the process and ensures the Live Migration from Cloud Manager or Ops Manager to Atlas proceeds only when you are ready to start the migration.
Live Migrate Your Data
Use the Atlas-managed tools to bring data into Atlas. Atlas guides you through the process and ensures the migration proceeds only when you are ready to start the migration.
Migrate Data with Self-Managed Tools
Use mongomirror, mongorestore, mongoimport, or MongoDB Compass, to bring data into Atlas. With these tools, you manage the migration process outside of Atlas.
