Single servers are excellent for maximizing MongoDB performance while minimizing cost. Common use cases include analytics engines, log storage, load testing, and staging environments.
Replica sets offer near 100% uptime for environments. These configurations consist of a primary and a secondary. The secondary server acts as a hot-standby in the event the Primary fails. With MongoDB in cloud environments, replica sets for those desiring maximum uptime is a must. Replica set use cases cover all industries, include social, local, mobile platforms, gaming.
Sharding is an array of replica sets, which MongoDB distributes load. Sharding scales horizontall by adding more replica set nodes which bare the load. These configurations gain performance boosts by distributing queries over 4 or more servers.
