How to: PHP Session distributed management (i.e. cloud) with MySQL or NoSQL (Reddis, MongoDB)

Hi,

I'm wondering what are the best practices for setting up a PHP session distributed system (for Login Authentication and Authorization) using MySQL or perhaps NoSQL (maybe Reddis or MongoDB). Should I use Node.js with a NoSQL? If so, what are some good thorough books or online tutorials where I can learn more. I don't know much about NoSQL and I'm just learning Node.js but know Javascript.

I'm reading this whitepaper:
http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/white-papers/unlocking-new-value-from-web-session-management/

and it gives some overview but I'm wondering how other professionals are tackling the issues too.

Can you give me some good books to read or links please? =)

I'll be using PHP Laravel for the backend framework so I have to learn how to implement all of this or at least get going in the right direction.

Thanks. Father God bless you<>< =)

How many servers are you trying to manage and controls logins on?

@Dave, Oh, I see. Yeah, I can see that working. I was reading on MySQL cluster and we want redundancy in case one server goes down. We have people filling out like different pages of a registration form for creating a legal doc stuff. And so I'm thinking there will be other fields that need to be managed with two different MySQL servers - maybe three servers situated in disparate geo locations for speed and when one or the other server goes down. I'd like to start with two to keep it simple. I am looking at cloud services like Amazon but really don't know much about it right now. Oh, perhaps just two VPS servers.

So I'm trying to find out what people think is the best strategy. I'm thinking using Node.js and MongoDB and then sync the MongoDB with the two MySQL servers. Not sure if that could work. Do I need MySQL cluster? Is it easier to manage with it? Not sure how everything really fits together though.

Hopefully, this clarifies what I'm trying to achieve or do. What do you fellas think?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
