This session is a deep dive into the implementation of sharding within MongoDB. We'll review the MongoDB's sharding architecture, which blends ideas from RDBMSes, key/value stores, and large distributed systems like BigTable. We'll then take a look under the hood to show how queries work across a sharded set up, and how data is balanced and migrated.
