MongoDB Now Supports Auto-sharding

If your big data NoSQL database doesn’t auto-shard, you might want to switch to open source MongoDB which will auto-shard all day long.

The newest version, 1.6, added the ability to subdivide and distribute a very large data set across many servers – auto-sharding. It allows data sets to scale horizontally.

MongoDB is used by Foursquare to handle its more than 100 million check-ins as users attempt to become the “mayor” of local bars and restaurants.
