MongoDB is an open source, non-relational, document oriented database ideally suited for web development. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which provide rich queries and deep functionality).
MongoDB has been designed to scale horizontally via an auto-sharding architecture. Auto-sharding permits the development of large-scale data clusters that incorporate additional machines dynamically, automatically accomodate changes in load and data distribution, and ensure automated failover.
This talk will cover replication and replica sets, auto-sharding, and scaling use cases
