Disaster recovery solutions are critical for ensuring the continuity and resilience of data in any modern database system, including MongoDB Atlas clusters. These solutions mitigate the potential impact of catastrophic events like natural disasters, hardware failures, or human errors that lead to data loss or service interruptions.
MongoDB Atlas is a managed cloud database service that offers robust disaster recovery capabilities to safeguard valuable data. One key feature of MongoDB Atlas is the ability to create regular backups of the entire cluster. These backups capture the state of the data at a specific time, enabling organizations to restore their databases to a known state in the event of data corruption or accidental deletion.
In this blog, I will explain the configurations and testing challenges of the Disaster recovery solution of MongoDB atlas clusters hosted on Azure. Disaster recovery configuration is straightforward by selecting desired regions but testing the solution along with applications\microservices running on Azure is a complex process. Some additional configurations should be done to keep the Disaster recovery solution in working condition to meet audit and business requirements.
You may encounter below challenges while testing disaster recovery solutions:
