I've lived through it: Single-node MongoDB instance, then a slave for backup/failover, then Replica Pairs, then Replica Sets, Sharding, performance monitoring, gigantic crashes, optimization, migration from RDBMS, the whole nine yards.

I'll walk through the process of scaling through these levels, showing what to know and look for, and when to make the moves.
