With high application availability as a critical requirement for modern applications (IoT, AI/ML, eCommerce, analytics), many enterprises are turning to distributed NoSQL databases. MongoDB continues to be the database of choice for application teams needing to tackle high-volumes of unstructured data, cloud-native and hybrid cloud deployments, agile application development, and cost-effective scalability. Although the cloud-readiness of NoSQL databases like MongoDB enables enterprises to power their cloud applications, no database should enter into production until a reliable, enterprise-grade backup and recovery strategy is in place. While native backup tools like mongodump and OpsManger exist, they are often an inadequate solution for enterprise-grade data NoSQL management.
