The book is an enjoyable introduction to scaling MongoDB.
It begins by defining concepts such as sharding or splitting and in how MongoDB splits data between servers.
Step by step the book guide us in how to implement a database cluster, its configuration and administration.
It is so easy that in less than an hour you can have running a cluster in, for example, Amazon EC2 for testing.
It also offers a few tips on how to configure the database depending on the data you're working in.
This book is not a complete manual or an administration guide and it doesn't want to be on, it only provides us an introduction to mongoDB capabilities.
In short, a simple but useful book.
This book is not a programming book, but rather an architecture book that's meant for operations people. It covers the MongoDB architecture and how to scale it. The 3 main implementations covered in this book are the single Mongo instance, replication sets and sharding and how to implement them.
Replica sets are the way MongoDB implements replication. This is covered extensively in the book, which also includes how to best use replication sets and the various ways to implement them. Sharding is also covered in this book. Sharding is the most scalable architecture that MongoDB has and also the most complex because it has several components. These components are: the replica sets themselves, the configuration servers and the routing instance. The author carries it off in this small book and explains them all in a simple and clear language.
