MySQL and MongoDB for web-scale data management

22 September 10:20AM - 10:45AM

We can have an interesting discussion about web-scale data management if we first focus on what we need and then discuss how to get it. For now I will ignore debates over legacy vs new, NoSQL/NewSQL vs SQL or relational vs document data models. I want a solution for sharded replica sets that is efficient, performant and manageable. I have a wish list for features. How close will MySQL and MongoDB get to making this easier in the next few years?
