What is best backup/recovery strategy of 3 node MongoDB replica hosted in AWS

Hi,

I am looking best backup and recovery strategy for my 3 node prod mongodb cluster hosted in AWS.

Some of my questions:

  1. Should I take daily basis snapshot of my server image or copy of the whole hardrive ?
  2. Do I need to take primary node back up or secondary node backup?

Thanks

Hello @Sreedhar_Y ,

The backup and recovery requirements of a given system vary to meet the cost, performance and data protection standards the system’s owner sets. You should consult any internal backup policy(s) your organisation may have to determine the requirements of the backups taken.

In saying the above, you can go through below links to help you understand the available backup methods and some backup strategies:
