MongoDB on AWS
Quick Start Reference Deployment Guide

Deployment Steps

You can deploy MongoDB easily on the flexible AWS platform. This guide serves as a reference for customers who want to set up a fully customizable MongoDB cluster on demand. Building a scalable, on-demand infrastructure on AWS provides a cost-effective solution for handling large-scale compute and storage requirements. The flexible AWS architecture allows you to choose the most appropriate network, compute, and storage infrastructure for your environment.

The procedure for deploying MongoDB on AWS consists of the following steps. For detailed instructions, follow the links for each step.

  • Step 1. Prepare an AWS account

    Sign up for an AWS account, choosing a region, creating a key pair, and requesting increases for account limits, if necessary.

  • Step 2. Launch the Quick Start

    Launch the AWS CloudFormation template into your AWS account, specify parameter values, and create the stack. The Quick Start provides separate templates for end-to-end deployment and deployment into an existing VPC.

  • Step 3. Connect to MongoDB nodes

    You use SSH to connect to MongoDB nodes via the NAT instance, because the nodes are in a private subnet.
