Localytics uses MongoDB to process over 100M datapoints every day for their mobile analytics service. They will present a technical deep dive on scaling MongoDB without breaking the bank. This presentation will explore how Localytics optimized their document design, indexes, and EC2 configurations, accounting for MongoDB's internal data structure and concurrency model. Consideration will be given toward enhancements coming in MongoDB 2.0 and beyond.
