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?
This would be great!!!
That would be really helpfull.

We fully support this same requirement. Having the continuous backups and/or snapshots in a second region can protect us against some very real logical failure scenarios. Having to replicate every microservice database to a live database in a second region does not seem to be a cost effective solution to this problem.
I agree with both comments. Having multi-regional snapshots in GCP would be very beneficial to us as well for DR purposes, and avoid performance degradation of geo-clustering.
+1 for this feature.
Some companies have a strong requirement to mirror the backup to a second region even if a cluster is stretched. So fully agree that this feature should be made available.
