This tutorial will guide you through the many considerations when deploying a sharded cluster. We will cover the services that make up a sharded cluster, configuration recommendations for these services, shard key selection, use cases, and how data is managed within a sharded cluster. Maintaining a sharded cluster also has its challenges. We will review these challenges and how you can prevent them with proper design or ways to resolve them if they exist today. There will be lab sessions at the end of some chapters so please have your laptops with you.
