Urban Airship started using MongoDB in early 2010 and began migrating data off of it almost exactly a year later.
This talk will detail the wins Urban Airship gained with MongoDB as well as the shortcomings that eventually led to other databases being preferred. The goal is not to encourage or discourage anyone considering MongoDB but rather to share one group's experience with the database while supporting an ever growing amount of data.
For those who saw the first iteration of this talk at Update Portland, the slides will be updated, improved, and new data on sharding, replica sets, etc. will be added.
21st–24th June 2011
