Please watch Percona’s Senior Support Engineer, Adamo Tonete as he presents “Sharding in MongoDB 101 - Geo-Partitioning."
This is part 2 of our MongoDB Sharding 101 if you would like to see part 1 click here. In this webinar, we are going to discuss the common shard keys and demonstrate how to build a worldwide distributed sharded cluster using tags.
Tags can be used to choose where to save your data based on location or any other parameter your application uses. With tags, we can guarantee that users from the US will only write their data to the US datacenter, and users from Europe will only write in the European datacenter, for example.
