How to automate and manage MongoDB operations - a different perspective

Presented by Ruairí Newman

Join us on October 24th for a different perspective on how to automate and manage your MongoDB databases.

In any busy operations environment, there are countless tasks to perform - some monthly, or weekly, some daily or more frequently, and some on an ad-hoc basis. Automation is key to performing fast, efficient and consistently repeatable software deployments and recovery.

There are many generic tools available, both commercial and open source, to aid with the automation of operational tasks. Some of these tools are even deployed in the database world.

However, there are a small number of specialist domain-specific automation tools available, and we are going to compare the MongoDB-relevant functionality of two of these products: MongoDB’s Ops Manager, and ClusterControl from Severalnines. Attendees should take away a clear understanding of the differences between these tools, and how they help automate and manage MongoDB operations.
