BIGDATA - scalling out MongoDB and Hadoop MAP/Reduce (on demand) on NetApp Cluster Mode (with SnapCreator)[1]

This paper provides a model of how NetApp Cluster-Mode can make easier the management of large noSQL distributed databases, such as MongoDB.

Included are methods for; reducing storage consumption, consistent backup and fast restores, cloning large number of MongoDB nodes for pre-production environments, and running large map-reduce Hadoop jobs on demand.

The content in this document should provide the reader with enough information to set up a MongoDB distributed and highly-available database on NetApp Cluster-Mode.

The document provides a workflow with step-by-step tasks for a typical deployment scenario.
