Migrating on-premises or self-hosted MongoDB clusters to Atlas is becoming increasingly common. The popularity and benefits of Atlas makes migrating now more attractive than ever. However, many organizations are overwhelmed by the "what" and "how" of getting started. Anyone planning a migration soon, or even toying with the idea of moving to the cloud can learn from what others have done before.
This talk covers the entire migration process including: how to execute a proof-of-concept (POC), picking the right Atlas cluster size, and making the migration happen. We'll discuss real-life migration experiences, common gotchas, and most importantly, how to successfully migrate a production cluster into Atlas.
