10 questions to ask when hosting your database on AWS

Dharshan Rangegowda, founder of Scalegrid, posted a list of 10 questions that should be answered before hosting your MongoDB on AWS. But these are generic enough to extend to any database-on-AWS solution. They cover aspects like HA, backup and restore, monitoring, and basic security.
