Sharded clusters provide horizontal scaling for large data sets and enable high-throughput operations by distributing the data set across a group of servers.

To deploy a new sharded cluster that Atlas can manage, use the Atlas Open Service Broker and Kubernetes. After deployment, use Atlas to add shards and perform other maintenance operations on the cluster.
