There is no doubt that users always look for new ways to scale their applications. Along this trend, the use of Docker as the container technology is becoming more frequent to deploy and easily manage complex architectures like sharded clusters in MongoDB. One of the challenges of scaling MongoDB using containers technology is to understand how to implement your cluster while monitoring and controlling resource usage of each component. This session focuses on combining MongoDB sharded clusters and Docker containers with cgroups to successfully control resource usage of a MongoDB cluster with the WiredTiger storage engine.
