Title: MongoDB & EC2: A Love Story

Abstract:  Running mongodb in the cloud offers its own set of challanges. This will be an overview of our 1.5 year+ experience of running mongodb on EC2 and our key takeaways; where we got burnt and where life treated us well. It will go through how Chartbeat evolved from a single/simple cluster, master-slave configuration to leveraging multiple clusters, benefiting from EBS snapshotting, loving replica sets, dealing with disappearing instances, focusing on disk locality and much more.

Description: Eytan Daniyalzade is a software developer at He primarily focuses on server side development, but in reality he gets to play with anything from frontend hacking to dealing with the site's infrastructure on EC2.

    All three talks were very educational. The comments on the unreliability of EC2 were interesting ... disappearing instances.
