MongoDB Migration to AWS

Hello All,
I have a MongoDB cluster at on-prem hardware servers and now looking for migration to AWS EC2 hosted MongoDB replicaset. Is there any way to achieve live migration?
Also if you can guide how I can achieve below -

  • Take Full backup before migration and restore on EC2 hosted MongoDB cluster.
  • Take incremental backup of MongoDB and restore it on cluster hosted on AWS EC2 and decommission on-prem server.

Hi @Krishna_Kulkarni. You can do a live migration. The process is described here, if you’re not using ops manager, how you add the nodes will be slightly different but the process remains the same.

Backup options are documented here.

If you ever want to migrate to a completely hosted solution, you can also live migrate to Atlas.
