Deploy MongoDB

How to deploy MongoDB?

NOTE: Spheron Compute offers the flexibility to create custom configurations for your instance.

Spheron allows you to deploy a compute instance pre-installed with MongoDB, all set up and ready to use.

To deploy MongoDB follow these steps:

  1. Upon logging in, you'll be directed to the Create Organization page, where you can give your organization name and choose Avatar. Ensure the "Compute" option is selected from the drop-down menu of the "Start With" option. Click 'Continue'.
  2. Next, you'll be taken to a new page. Click the "Create New Projects" button. Add 'Project Title' And 'Project Description' and Click 'Create'.
  3. Choose "Compute" to use CPU-based instances for running containers.
  4. Choose your desired Compute Type option under Compute Type.
  5. Click "Start from Marketplace App" and Select "MongoDB" from the marketplace.
  6. When selecting a region, we recommend starting by trying to deploy in a region closer to you. If you encounter any issues, you can consider switching to other regions. Choosing a region closer to you can improve performance and reduce latency. Click here to know more.
  7. Spheron will automatically select the recommended plan for the specific template. If you intend to move forward with the recommended plan, just Click 'Deploy' to initiate deployment.
  8. If you want you can Select the instance plan that suits your needs. You can use the "Create Custom Plan" toggle to create custom plans for your CPU based instance.
  9. You have to choose storage from the available options or the custom storage option that fits your needs. This storage will be volatile and is erased when the instance is restarted, redeployed, or shut down. Additionally, you get the option to choose Persistent Storage.
  10. Next, Add "Root Username" and "Root Password" under Template Configuration. Spheron has made it easy and auto-filled the configuration options. You can add advanced configuration if required. Click here to know more.
  11. Click "Deploy" to initiate deployment.

Verify Installation

MongoDB can be accessed only after the Compute Instance is provisioned. Thus, you need to wait for the installation to complete before you can start using it.

How to connect to MongoDB?

You can use the connection string URI to connect to MongoDB. The standard URI connection scheme has the following format:

  • mongodb:// - A required prefix to identify that this is a string in the standard connection format.
  • username:password (optional) - Authentication credentials passed in App Configuration. If specified, the client will attempt to authenticate the user to the authSource.
  • host[:port] - The host and port number where the mongod instance is running. Use the Connection URL provided by Spheron under Port Policy Info.
  • /defaultauthdb (optional) - The authentication database to use if the connection string includes username:password authentication credentials, but the authSource option is unspecified. If both authSource and defaultauthdb are unspecified, the client will attempt to authenticate the specified user to the admin database.
  • ?options (optional) - A query string that specifies connection specific options as <name>=<value> pairs. If the connection string does not specify a database/ you must specify a slash (/) between the last host and the question mark (?) that begins the string of options.
