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. If you haven’t done this before, save them as a quick check list.
✚ Just because you set up HA and backups, it doesn’t mean they’ll actually work when you need them. Test them over and over again. Make it part of your regular procedures.
