Disaster Recovery planning for MongoDB Atlas

Hello there,

Recently the enterprise I work for has begun to use MongoDB Atlas, and I am looking into the backup and recovery options for DR planning. It seems the simplest approach is to use the cloud backup option.

Initially I have here a 3 replica set cluster. It seems the backups, or snapshots, are kept in the same region as this cluster. If the cluster were to disappear for some reason, and/or potentially the region, how would I gain access to the backup? Is it possible to replicate it to another region? Forgive me for any terminology misuse as I am still new to the MongoDB space.

I am also looking for backup and recovery options for DR planning. We are also going to use cloud backup option. But we need to know the RPO and RTO in case of failure. If region is down will the backup will also lost in case if we use the backup option is same region? Kindly guide us.
