Hi everyone,

we'd like to announce the next usergroup meeting. This time we have prepared something really cool: we have two talks and a small surprise. Neofonie is our host this time and in distinction to our normal schedule this meeting will happen on the 25th of october, which is a friday. The first talk will be held by David Mytton. He is the founder of Server Density, a SaaS tool which helps you provision and monitor your infrastructure. Based in the UK, David has been programming in Python and PHP for over 10 years, was one of the earliest production MongoDB users (founding the London MongoDB User Group), co-founded the Open Rights Group and can often be found cycling in London or drinking tea in Japan. The second talk will be a short roundup what benefits you may get from the new sharding features in 2.4 by Stefan Rudnitzki.


18:00 start

18:15 - 19:00 "MongoDB Infrastructure - Reliability, Redundancy and Performance"

Abstract: MongoDB is often touted for their performance and whilst it's true that they usually offer great performance out of the box, it still really depends on how you deploy your infrastructure. Dedicated vs cloud? In memory vs on disk? Spindal vs SSD? Replication lag. Multi data centre deployment.

This talk will consider all the infrastructure requirements of a successful high performance MongoDB infrastructure with hints and tips that can be applied to help improve reliability, redundancy and performance. It will include things like OS tweaks, disk benchmarks, replication, monitoring and backups.

small break

19:15 - 19:45 "MongoDB sharding with 2.4"

Abstract: MongoDB now supports hashed sharding keys to support the users when their dataset needs to be distributed. With this short talk we will try to compare this to the sharding ideas up to 2.2. Therefore Stefan has prepared some experiments to show the effect of hashed sharding keys.

small break

20:00 "surprise" time and afterwards some beers and interesting discussions

Stefan will also be speaking at the Developer Conference 2013 [] in Hamburg. That’s why we have one free ticket available. You can win this ticket at our meeting. (Ticket includes entrance to the conference, travel expense are - of course - on your own.)
