MongoDB workshop

In this training, you will learn the overview and requirements of NoSQL databases and see the arhitectural components of Mongo DB Servers. We will start from the installation phase and move to the details of MongoDB servers including Replica Sets and Sharded Clusters for High-Availability. You will learn how to interact with the data in MongoDB using CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) Operations. Additionally there will be monitoring and maintenance related subjects. You will be doing hand-on practices during the workshop.

What you will learn

  • Understand NoSQL databases and their types
  • Install MongoDB and manage the MongoDB Servers
  • Manage and Maintain the MongoDB
  • Use CRUD Operations
  • Backup and Restore the MongoDB
  • Performance Management
  • Monitoring
