MongoDB is an open-source, document-oriented, NoSQL database that is fast becoming the default choice for many organizations. Although cunningly easy to run out of the box, MongoDB is a first class database engine, which merits proper care and knowledge to run successfully in a large scale production environment.

Attendees will learn and implement several techniques to make a MongoDB installation run smoothly. These include replica-set, deployment topology, sharding for scale, and performance tuning and insights.

Who should attend:
System administrators, DBA, DevOps and anyone taking on supporting and operating a MongoDB deployment in production.

Take back to work:

  • A solid understanding of MongoDB's scale and durability mechanisms.
  • How to plan and deploy replica sets and sharded clusters
  • How do diagnose and remedy(!) performance issues.

Topics include

  • Mongo's durability and scale mechanisms
  • Setting up replica sets
  • Setting up sharding
  • Detecting performance issues
  • Addressing performance issues with proper indexing and planning
