MongoDB Advanced Deployment and Operations

via MongoDB University

This course may be unavailable.


This is an advanced course for operations staff and others interested in administering MongoDB deployments. It is a deeper dive into many of the topics of M102 and several additional subjects. In this course, we will explore performance and monitoring with a detailed tutorial on using MMS. You will learn the mechanics of MongoDB memory and disk usage and how to tune Linux for typical MongoDB workloads. We will look at preparing for disaster recovery under different requirements scenarios ranging from low tolerance for downtime and data loss to high tolerance for both. You will also learn best practices for doing rolling upgrades and other maintenance across replica sets. Building on the introductory coverage of sharding in M102, we will cover sharding mechanics in detail and specific topics such as pre-splitting data and tag-based vs. hash-based sharding. Throughout the course, we will spend considerable time on diagnostic concerns and debugging configuration and other issues in MongoDB deployments. New MongoDB 2.6 features will be addressed throughout the course, including the new security features, which we will cover in the final week. 

This course should also prepare you to take the DBA certification associate exam. Register for next exam session to become a MongoDB Certified Professional.

    This is a great course for any DBA managing a MongoDB environment. It is much more challenging than the M102 course and goes into topics such as sharding in much greater detail. The course material is nicely laid out and the online forum and homeworks really help solidify the topics being discussed. I took the course and thought it was excellent. I use what I learned on a daily basis now and don't think I would have been able to have such in-depth understanding of MongoDB without this course.
  • Best Course I have ever had. I'm a best fan of mongoDB. From this course I'm learning so many new concepts and best practices. Kudo's mongoDB for this free course initiative.
