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. And 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 also, and we are going to compare two of these products: MongoDB?s own Ops Manager, and ClusterControl from Severalnines.
We will cover:
* Installation and maintenance
* Complexity of architecture
* Options for redundancy
* Comparative functionality
* Monitoring, Dashboard, Alerting
* Backing up and restoring
* Automated deployment of advanced configurations
* Upgrading existing deployments
Participants should take away a clear understanding of the differences between these tools, and how they help automate and manage MongoDB operations.
