MarkLogic Administration

Course Details

In this hands-on course, you learn how to administer a MarkLogic database as you use virtual machines to create a cluster, monitor a cluster, create a database, load data with security permissions into the database, update database data, run search queries, serve data to applications, create indexes, use various security features, resize a database, back up a database, restore a database to a point in time, configure high availability, set up tiered storage, optimize performance, and perform an upgrade.

This course is not for administrators who will be deploying and running MarkLogic Data Hub Service.
This course is for administrators who will be deploying and running MarkLogic server on-premise or on the cloud (e.g. AWS or Azure).

For your scheduling convenience, we offer this course in two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. You do need to take Part 1 before taking Part 2. And, in case you would like to take the whole course at one time, we are scheduling Part 1 and Part 2 back to back.

  • Duration: 4 days total (Part 1 = 2 days, Part 2 = 2 days)
  • Availability: Live Online Instructor-led
  • Prerequisites: Fundamentals
