In this tutorial, How to Deploy MongoDB as a Docker container. MongoDB is a source-available cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with optional schemas.

In today’s world of modern application development, containerization has become a popular approach for deploying and managing applications.

If you need to start the MongoDB container.

docker start ID
docker stop mongoDB


You have successfully deployed MongoDB as a Docker container. This approach offers flexibility, scalability, and portability for your MongoDB deployments. With containerization, you can easily manage your database infrastructure and ensure consistency across different environments. I hope this will be helpful.
