MongoDB is often touted for their performance and whilst it's true that they usually offer great performance out of the box, it still really depends on how you deploy your infrastructure. Dedicated vs cloud? In memory vs on disk? Spindal vs SSD? Replication lag. Multi data centre deployment. This talk will consider all the infrastructure requirements of a successful high performance MongoDB infrastructure with hints and tips that can be applied to help improve reliability, redundancy and performance. It will include things like OS tweaks, disk benchmarks, replication, monitoring and backups.
