After reading about MarkLogic Packaging feature, I was wondering if managing configurations would not be better done with tools like Puppet or Chef instead of a custom built solution even if it comes packaged with your NoSQL database.
- You’ve been working on an application on your development machine. Now it’s time to move your application to the staging or testing servers. What follows is a tedious process of reviewing the settings on your development machine and applying them to the staging machine. How sure are you that you got all the indexes just right?
- You’ve got a certified configuration that you want to deploy onto a new cluster. Getting the hardware setup and installing the server itself isn’t too hard, but now you have to make sure that all the application servers and databases are setup. Can you see another tedious process coming?
If you’ve been involved or responsible for managing the configuration of a NoSQL database deployment, I’d really love to learn what solution and tools have been used.
