MongoDB and Microservices Part 1: Powering Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, and MongoDB

PublishedJuly 25, 2017

This session introduced technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Kafka, which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly, how to exploit them for stateful services such as MongoDB.

What You Will Learn:

  • Why organizations are choosing to use microservice architectures, what benefits they deliver, and when they should – or shouldn't – be used.
  • Technologies that are used to build microservices – including containers, orchestration, and messaging systems.
  • Why MongoDB is a good fit for microservices and what special steps need to be taken to make them work well together.

Then, find out how to implement microservices by watching the Creating Highly-Available MongoDB Microservices with Docker Containers and Kubernetes session.

In this session we explored how to:

  • Successfully define our database infrastructure with MongoDB running on Docker containers
  • Orchestrate MongoDB containers with Kubernetes in multiple environments, considerations and strategies for managing stateful MongoDB containers
  • Manage high availability and resiliency in a distributed system while running on a container technology such as Kubernetes
