MongoDB’s replica sets provide a powerful primitive for high
availability. However, like any tool, replica sets require proper
wielding. At Stripe, we’ve evolved a set of development, deployment,
and administration techniques to achieve true zero downtime during
both routine maintenance and catastrophic failure. In this session,
we’ll share a selection of these techniques and tricks, as well as the
mistakes we made along the way.

We won’t assume any particular MongoDB knowledge, but general
familiarity with MongoDB will definitely be helpful.
