Everyone thinks they know what sharding is and how to do it, but simple horizontal read scaling is the small potatoes. In this talk we'll focus on the sharding pattern for large scale read/write architectures, based on real world implementations. Supporting millions of users on commodity hardware doesn't need magical software, just careful application of the right scalability pattern.
