Scaling MongoDB

Has your app taken off? Are you thinking about scaling? MongoDB makes it easy to horizontally scale out with built-in automatic sharding, but did you know that sharding isn't the only way to achieve scale with MongoDB?

In this presentation, we'll review three different ways to achieve scale with MongoDB. We'll cover how you can optimize your application design and configure your storage to achieve scale, as well as the basics of horizontal scaling. You'll walk away with a thorough understanding of options to scale your MongoDB application.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Scaling Vertically
  • Hardware Considerations
  • Index Optimization
  • Schema Design
  • Sharding
