In this presentation is about scaling MongoDB. Besides its schema free functionality, a modern database 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.

I've been using relation databases for years and I'm very familiar with approaches to scaling them, so it was very interesting to see how MongoDB needs to be scaled, along with some of the gotchas of each approach.

Even for someone with limited knowledge of MongoDB (I knew almost nothing of MongoDB before attending this talk), Derick did a great job of making this accessible and interesting.
