I am currently thinking about our DRP and this question has just pop in my mind.
We are currently using a single region cluster on Atlas GCP.
We have CloudBackup enabled that provides us automatic snapshots. Good enough.
In the documentation (https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/backup/cloud-backup/restore/) it is mentioned
Restore your Snapshot to an Atlas Cluster
For best possible restore performance, select a target cluster that belongs to:
- The same Atlas project as the snapshot. ()
- The same cloud provider region as the snapshot. ()
My question is “What happen if a whole region of the cloud provider becomes unavailable ?”
Are the CloudSnapshot migrated to a secondary region ?
Do I have to setup some kind of backup of my backups in a replicated way ?
