Data volumes were once smaller, constrained and predictable. Today, organizations must be prepared to support millions of users, thousands of queries per second and hundreds of terabytes of data. Tens of thousands of organizations use MongoDB to build high-performance systems at scale, including over 30 of the world’s 100 largest organizations and many of the world’s most successful and innovative web companies. In order to achieve scale with any database system, you need an understanding of MongoDB's high availability and scaling architectures. This session will provide you with an overview of how you can build applications that scale with MongoDB.
