Managing MonboDB Clusters on AWS with Chef

· Database Zone

Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

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.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
