MongoDB is an immensely popular database that has become the go-to database in many organizations. MongoDB is a revolutionary NoSQL database, preferring a flexible document-oriented approach for organizing data rather than the traditional fixed-schema tabular model. With its robust durability and scalability mechanisms, MongoDB became popular for workloads of any size. Beyond basic MongoDB concepts, this course covers specific topics important to those charged with running, monitoring, maintaining, and troubleshooting MongoDB clusters.

  • This course covers the basics of MongoDB as a database, including installation, basic querying and data manipulation. Beyond that, the course goes through many administrative oriented common tasks such as installation, backup, performance tuning, replica sets, and sharded clusters.

Skills Gained

Attendees will leave with everything required to build, configure and run MongoDB clusters. They will have the skills necessary to design, build and run MongoDB tuned to provide high availability, automatic failover, and scale-out sharded clusters. Attendees will learn critical understanding and techniques required for troubleshooting and performance tuning of queries and the server, as well as performing routine maintenance tasks.

Who Can Benefit

The audience for this class is DBA, DevOps, System Administrators and any other engineering personnel interested in learning about running, managing, and troubleshooting MongoDB databases and clusters.


You should have six months experience or equivalent working with databases. You should be comfortable working with the operating system from a terminal or command console, and interacting with the network and file system. Basic knowledge of JavaScript and JSON would enhance class experience.
