In this presentation I will explain how to scale MongoDB. Besides it’s schema free functionality, a modern database like MongoDB is also a lot easier to scale up than traditional relational databases. I will cover replication, for failover capabilities and increased read performance and “sharding” for dealing with larger sets of data and increased write performance. Each section will consist of theory, followed by instructions on how to set it up and deploy. At the end of the presentation you will have a firm understanding about how and why scaling with MongoDB is so straightforward.
