In this presentation, Derick Rethans will explain how to scale MongoDB. Besides its schema-free functionality, a modern database like MongoDB is also a lot easier to scale up than traditional relational databases. He will cover replication, for failover capabilities and increased read performance, and “sharding” for dealing with larger sets of data and increased write performance. Each section will consist of theory, followed by instructions on how to set it up and deploy. At the end of the presentation, you will have a firm understanding of how and
why scaling with MongoDB is so straightforward.
