We've been running Mongo as our main storage engine for almost 3 years. For most of that time the Mongo servers and all the rest of our infrastructure were hosted on Amazon's EC2. We recently migrated the Mongo servers onto our own hardware hosted in a datacenter and now have a hybrid environment with everything else still on EC2. I'll be talking about why and how we did this at the upcoming MongoSV conference on Tuesday, December 4th, 2012.
The name of the talk is “MongoDB at Foursquare: From the the cloud to bare metal." Come check it out!
