Soundcloud wrote a blog post http://backstage.soundcloud.com/2011/04/failing-with-mongodb... about the specifics of how they failed in implementing an analytics platform in MongoDB, then went with Cassandra (and why). I have been at a company where it was on developers to deploy mongo clusters, setting up logging can suck, but still there are no numbers or even application integration specifics here. As someone pointed out - manual denormilization can suck. There are options like MongoHQ and Heroku though so this shouldn't resolve to "don't try a new data store its hard and possibly buggy".
