MDBA - MongoDB for Administrators Training Course

Overview

Duration: 2 days
This course covers everything a database administrator needs to know to successfully deploy and maintain MongoDB databases.

Objectives

  • Understand MongoDB from a developer's perspective, including its command shell, query API, and driver tools. 
  • Deploy MongoDB in all its configurations - as a single server, with master/slave replication, as a replica set, and as a sharded cluster. 
  • Evaluate applications and choose hardware appropriately. 
  • Monitor MongoDB instances and integrate with standard monitoring software (Munin, Nagios, etc.)
  • Plan for backups and manage large data imports and exports. 
  • Troubleshoot the most common developer issues and failure scenarios. 
  • Each delegate will need to perform a series of practical exercises.
