Atlas backup to second region
We would like the option to have our Atlas backups automatically copied to a 2nd region to support our DR initiative. I realize we could create a live database node in a 2nd region, but that is more costly and complex. Having the backup sync to another region that we can restore off of in case the primary region fails would be simpler and more cost effective.
Is this something that is on your roadmap, and if so, when will it be released?
We are excited to officially announce the general availability of Snapshot Distribution (multi-region backups)!
You can find it available in your clusters today.
It is available through the UI (at the bottom of the cluster backup policy tab called “Additional Backup Copies”) and through the API.
The MongoDB Team
Can you said if it's availaible also via Terraform?
And you forgot to mention then it not only Snapshot distribution but also Point In Time restore available by this fonctionnality..
I'm testing thing functionnaly actualy with Azure. Look great for now...
Any update on this?
The team is actively working on this capability now: stay tuned for an update soon!
Any news on this? It would be a very useful for those trying to ensure robust BCDR plans.
Any news about the feature?
We see a preview 6 month ago. Are you near to lauch this feature soon?
This is an important feature to have and the users would get benefitted from this. Looking forward to having this in near future.
+1 this is an important feature for us
This will be really important for our bussiness. Looking forward to seeing it working soon.
Would like to see this option. We are wanting to protect backup snapshots for a DR scenario without having to provision a cross-region cluster.
Specifically taking backups in a secondary region, rather than copying the snapshots across to another region. This would enable nodes in the highest priority region to all have the same priority.
This would be a truly time-saving feature. Otherwise, each customer has to roll their own.
+1000 this is extremely needed
Samething on Azure.
It's very difficult to implement DR solution and with encryption at rest with our Keys, it's not possible to download backup. So in case of DR, I not possible to have access to our backup if we need it. It's inacceptable.
Any news about adding this feature in Roadmap ? Today we know some datacenter can burn like OVHCLOUD SBG. We need to protect our data against any major failure. Thanks
This is an important security requirement. Right now Cloud backups only create backups in the same region as the data replica itself. It would be a nice improvement to support backups in different regions in the same country.
If the region is down, there is no way to pull the backups and restore in another region. With multi-region or dual-region, a customer would be able to get access to the backups.
This is definitely needed and I'm a bit surprised it doesn't exist already!
