Schema design is a critical step in making sure an application scales well. There are considerations for reads and writes, both with and without... sharding. We'll go through a few use cases and examine how difference schemas impact performance.
With MongoDB, you can distribute load across multiple servers using auto-sharding. This session will introduce MongoDB's auto-sharding concepts and... how to use them. We'll discuss choosing a shard key, basic architecture concepts, and common usage patterns. We'll close out the session with a few example use cases, including real world sharded deployments.
