Notes from a production MongoDB deployment « Boxed Ice Blog

Back in July last year I wrote about our migration from MySQL to MongoDB. We have been running MongoDB in production for our server monitoring service, Server Density, since then – 8 months – and have learnt quite a few things about it. These are the kind of things that you only experience once you reach a certain level of usage and it is surprising how few issues we’ve had. Where a problem or bug has cropped up, it has been quickly resolved/fixed by the MongoDB dev team; so we’re very happy.
