We’re live next Tuesday, November 15th, with our webinar ‘Become a MongoDB DBA - Scaling and Sharding’!

Join us and learn about the three components necessary for MongoDB sharding. We’ll also share a read scaling considerations checklist as well as tips & tricks for finding the right shard key for MongoDB.

Overall, we’ll discuss how to plan your MongoDB scaling strategy up front and how to prevent ending up with unusable secondary nodes and shards. And we’ll look at how to leverage ClusterControl’s MongoDB scaling and shards management capabilities.
