MongoDB: Architectural Best Practices

0 comments
With the launch of our MongoDB solutions, developers can provision powerful, optimized, horizontally scaling NoSQL database clusters in real-time on bare metal infrastructure in SoftLayer data centers around the world. We worked tirelessly with our friends at 10gen — the creators of MongoDB — to build and tweak hardware and software configurations that enable peak MongoDB performance, and the resulting platform is pretty amazing. As Duke mentioned in his blog post, those efforts followed 10Gen's MongoDB best practices, but what he didn't mention was that we created some architectural best practices of our own for MongoDB in deployments on our platform.

The MongoDB engineered servers that you order from SoftLayer already implement several of the recommendations you'll see below, and I'll note which have been incorporated as we go through them. Given the scope of the topic, it's probably easiest to break down this guide into a few sections to make it a little more digestible. Let's take a look at the architectural best practices of running MongoDB through the phases of the roll-out process: Selecting a deployment strategy to prepare for your MongoDB installation, the installation itself, and the operational considerations of running it in production.
