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.
