Scaling for Humongous amounts of data with MongoDB

A session at Topconf Tallinn 2012

Friday 2nd November, 2012

9:45am to 10:30am (TMT)

Life is great as your first customer signs up. Then you have your millionth signup, your data needs to span multiple machines across several geographies, the business wants more information, better accuracy and faster. Your life now sucks.
In this talk we will cover the
- Basic Schema Design
- Schema design for scaling: bucketing, time series, linking versus embedding
- Implications of sharding keys with alternatives
- Read scaling through replication
- Challenges of eventual consistency
This is not just theory, each will be mapped to customer examples of the challenges of solving actual real world problems.
