For enormous datasets that cannot be efficiently hosted on one cluster, RavenDB v6.0 is including sharding. Like different volumes of an encyclopedia, a sharded database is spread across multiple nodes. These nodes can be distributed across different machines and in different locations.
RavenDB founder Oren Eini (Ayende @ Rahien) will explain the various sharding features available in our next release. He will discuss how they work and how to effectively spread a gigantic global dataset into distinct shards in ways that maximize efficiency.
Join us on Wednesday, Jan 11 at 10:30 am (NYC) for the discussion. See the demonstration and ask questions about how you can make sharding work for you with RavenDB 6.0.
