MongoDB and Amazon Web Services are a great match for those deploying and scaling applications in the cloud. This session will highlight the best practices for those running MongoDB on EC2, starting with basic installation using the AMI, to configuration of replica sets, to scaling a sharded system across multiple availability zones in order to ensure fault tolerance. We’ll walk through the specific steps necessary to set up, monitor and backup MongoDB so that you walk away from the presentation ready to deploy in production.
