How to Deploy MongoDB for High Availability

MongoDB provides ReplicaSets to help you address high availability database requirements. Although support for replication and failover is built-in, it is not enough for the database to be considered production-ready. That requires a set of policies and procedures, like getting alerted in case of performance slowdowns, anomalies or failures in a live environment. Backups are essential. Being able to automatically recover from different types of failures can drastically reduce downtime.
