Deploy MongoDB using Ansible

I’ve recently had some people ask how I deploy MongoDB. For a while I used their excellent online tool to deploy and monitor my clusters. Unfortunately they changed direction and I couldn’t afford their new tools, so I turned to Ansible.

In order more easily share the process, I posted a simple example that you can run locally using Vagrant to deploy MongoDB using Ansible.

As soon as you finish running the Ansible script, you can immediately connect to MongoDB and start working with Data.

  1. Daniel, great post. I just published something very similar – but without Vagrant and also takes a different approach. I talk about depoying MongoDB to servers via YUM through ansible. Thought your readers might appreciate a different slant. Here’s the link: http://www.mlynn.org/2017/09/deploying-mongodb-enterprise-with-ansible/ Cheers!
