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.
