A MongoDB data recovery tale

Excellent write up by MongoHQ’s Paul Rubin of a data recovery story:

The friend-​​of-​​a-​​friend had not been run­ning Mon­goDB with us, but had been run­ning Mon­goDB at a bud­get VPS host. Their data­base on the bud­get VPS host had worked fine, until the host had a hard­ware crash. And as is all too usual in these sto­ries, their self-​​hosted plat­form had no usable back­ups less than about six weeks old.

While this story might be helpful, I really wish you’ll never need it; but just in case bookmark it.
