About this course

In this short-course we provide an overview of MongoDB's deployment management platforms: Cloud Manager and Ops Manager. Both platforms provide deployment automation, monitoring, and backup for MongoDB. Cloud Manager is a hosted platform, while Ops Manager is designed to be installed and run on your premises. We will explore setting up automation, monitoring, backup using the Web UI these platforms support and provide a deeper dive on the architecture of Ops Manager to facilitate setup and configuration for on-premises installations.
