MongoDB Training Overview

MongoDB is a powerful database featuring 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 massively popular for workloads of any size.

Accelebrate's MongoDB training goes well beyond basic MongoDB concepts and includes specific topics important to those charged with running, monitoring, maintaining, and troubleshooting MongoDB clusters. Students learn the basics of MongoDB as a database, including installation, basic querying, and data manipulation. Attendees also learn how to handle administrative tasks such as installation, backup, performance tuning, replica sets, and sharded clusters.
