Managing MonboDB Clusters on AWS with Chef

DZone's Guide to

Managing MonboDB Clusters on AWS with Chef

· Database Zone
Free Resource

Check out the IT Market Clock report for recommendations on how to consolidate and replace legacy databases. Brought to you in partnership with MariaDB.

We will discuss how to manage large numbers of clusters using Chef roles. We'll also discuss how to automatically snapshot your RAID arrays and reprovision from the latest set of snapshots, as well as how to manage backups via role attributes. Bringing up a new node, provisioning volumes, and joining the cluster is a single knife command. This makes your nodes effectively disposable -- it's faster to reprovision from snapshot with Chef than to fix most sorts of problems. We will also talk about how to generate all of your Nagios and Ganglia monitoring checks automatically for all MongoDB clusters.
